STILLBIRTH Certificates, CHICAGO (city), 1922-1942 and 1946-1947



Stillbirth certificates issued in IL 1916-1947 were a combination of birth/death certificate, for an infant who was born, but the infant did not “take breath” after birth (at that time, the qualifying factor for a “live” birth in Illinois).

If you’ve found citations on, and the LDS/FHC microfilm numbers include #1983619 through #1983904, my Springfield Illinois main research facility does NOT have those film #’s.
