We are celebrating our 40th anniversary!
• Chicago Vital Records program added to our All Star line-up!
During lunch Timothy Dever, Director of the Cook County Bureau of Vital Records, will present: Piecing Together the Past: Cook County Genealogy Online.
This summer, Cook County Clerk David Orr launched an online database of historical Cook County vital records. About eight million genealogy records can now be searched and downloaded at CookCountyGenealogy.com. Indexes of birth certificates 75 years or older, marriage licenses 50 years or older and death certificates 20 years or older are available at this new site. During the presentation Mr. Dever will introduce the Web site and give tips for searching successfully! For the remainder of the afternoon, Mr. Dever will occupy a research table, execute sample searches and answer questions.
