Using Cook County Births 1871-1940 on FamilySearch

Recently the FamilySearch database “Illinois, Cook County, Birth Certificates, 1871-1940” was mentioned here as having been updated. That’s correct.

The actual images are on That’s the website for the Cook County, Illinois’ vital records office. Their indexes are not as current as those on FamilySearch.
