Subject: [Genealib] Cook County Vital Records- Steve Morse One-Step Index

Steve Morse has created a One-Step search for the online Cook County, Illinois, vital records. They include birth certificates that are seventy-five years old or older (before today's date in 1933); marriage certificates that are fifty years old or older (before today's date in 1958); and death certificates that are twenty years old or older (before today's date in 1988).

On his website, place the cursor over "Vital Records" on the upper left side of the page and click on "Chicago Vital Records." Steve's One-Step eliminates the need to compute the Soundex code and also makes it easy to find the name of a spouse.
