Barry’s GenSites: Cook County Vital Records (community)
Posted on Sep 01, 2012
This site contains birth certificates that are 75 years or older, marriage certificates that are 50 years or older and death certificates that are 20 years or older. Also note that the Chicago Fire of 8 October 1871 destroyed all Cook County vital records prior to that date . Record keeping resumed in 1872. A great example of a how one big city is making its records available.
