Coroner's Death Certificates, Chicago / Cook County, 1879-1904



If you find the name in the Cook County Coroner’s Inquest Index (, I can usually locate the corresponding death certificate (different from the inquest record you’d get from IRAD at NEIU).

I can retrieve these records on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. If I’m not able to find the record there is no charge.

Please note: The coroner’s death certificates do not provide birth dates, spouse names, or parent names.
