Research your history

Vol. XXII No. 3 - WINTER 2011

Cook County Clerk David Orr has sent out information that is vital to anyone wanting to research their family history. There is a new web site, which is the official site for the county’s Vital Records Bureau. Users can explore the county archives with the click of a mouse and can download and print birth, marriage and death certificates at home day or night.

There is no reason to put this off if you’ve been talking about finding a long lost relative or learning more about your grandparents. Try it and let us know how much you’ve found. Perhaps you’ll discover a connection to Edgewater that you didn’t know you had. We’d like to learn more.
