ISGS has just heard fantastic news from the Illinois State Archives Director, Dr. David Joens-
The Illinois Death Certificates searchable database at ilsos.gov has been updated to include death certificate entries for the years 1951-1971!
CLICK HERE to visit the NEW 1951- 1971 Death Index Database!
This is a long-awaited update that is sure to help many Illinois family historians! The updated database is listed separately from the earlier death indexes, so now when you visit the State Archives Databases page at ilsos.gov, you will see the marriage index plus three death index options:
- Age at death
- Certificate number
- Date of death
- City and county where the certificate was filed
- Date certificate was filed
Remember, death certificate images from the years 1916-1947 can be obtained through ISGS for a discounted rate! CLICK HERE to learn about our Death Certificate Lookup Service.
Keep an eye out for more information about this exciting database update from Dr. Joens in an upcoming ISGS newsletter!
