Researching Chicago Family Trees

I'm becoming quite the whiz at researching families from Chicago and the Chicago area. There are so many resources available online now, that it just makes it so much easier to do. Here are some great links I use on a regular basis with my research:

Cook County, Clerk of the Circuit Court
Index to Naturalizations-Declarations of Intention, 1871-1929

Cook Count Clerk's Office - Genealogy Online

Databases at the Illinois State Archives

A Look At Cook
Street and ED Guide for Census for Cook County

Polish Genealogical Society of America
