Illinois Death Certificates
Also check out the article, Using The Illinois State Death Certificate Index,
which appeared in the Ancestry Daily News on 12 June 2002. It contains
hints on actually using the index to search.
Samples from Michael's own reseach
- John H. Ufkes--1924.
- Louisa Meyers--1920--original
difficult to read and some vague answers. Contrary to what the article
in the Ancestry
Daily News says, she is listed in the 1920 census as the date of the
was 1 January 1920!
- Martha Sargent--this one
excellent example of little information. Of course, these are always
people on whom I need the information the most.
- Samuel Edward Neill- This
certificate was not in the county where I expected it and is a good
example of following all the children of the person for whom you are
looking. Unfortunately it did not provide any information on the Irish
origins of the mother which is what I was really looking for.
- Ida Miller--another example where
are several blanks. Unfortunately, this individual was another one
I really needed the information. This is my great-grandmother and she
my real brick wall.
- George Trautvetter---this
an EXCELLENT record that provided places of birth in Germany for George
