Chicago/Cook County, IL Property Deed or Chain of Ownership



I will go to the Cook County Building and find the Tract Book page for a parcel of land/property that you are seeking. It will contain the history of this parcel of land which will include the names of all of the buyers and sellers of this property from 1871-1985 and the dates that it changed ownership. From this, I can get the appropriate document numbers and retrieve the Property Deed when your ancestor purchased the property.

Please include the PIN# and/or legal description (if known). If you do not have the PIN# and/or legal description, please include the address of the property you are seeking information for and the year your ancestors lived there (approximate is fine). If you are unsure of the approximate year, it is important that I know if the address you have is pre-1909 or after 1909 as that is when the addresses in Chicago changed.
