What’s in the Index

This index was extracted from Cook County death certificates and registers held by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Though legislation requiring that births and deaths be registered in Illinois was not passed until 1877, Cook County began recording births, marriages, and deaths after the Great Fire in 1871. Responsibility for registration was assigned to local registrars in 1915, which led to improved reporting.
