Description

I can obtain copies of Chicago death certificates, 1878-1947, at the local Family History Center on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Turnaround time is usually 0-3 days, depending on when you submit your request.

Please note:

  • Extracted information (no images) for Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths, 1916-1947 (http://bit.ly/Y8Zfm7) is available at FamilySearch. I can get the corresponding images for Chicago records. Provider mollykennedy can get the corresponding images for any entry in the index.

  • Chicago death certificates after 1947 are only available from the county or state. You can pay and download them from www.cookcountygenealogy.com.

  • If I’m not able to find the record you need (it’s rare, but it happens), I will let you know how and what I searched and there will be no charge.
