Re: How to find early death records


I obtained a death certificate of a relative who died at Oak Forest Hospital in Oak Forest, Illinois. Oak Forest is a south suburb of Chicago in Cook County, Illinois. The Cook County Clerk's office keeps official records of deaths that occur in Chicago and suburban Cook County. Under Illinois law, you may legally obtain a death certificate if you are a relative or can prove a financial interest in an individual's death.

Click on the below link below to the Cook County Clerk's Office and go to the right side of the page. It is slow to load. The address is:

Click on - Obtaining birth, death or marriage certificate.

I hope this helps.
