Usage Tips

In Illinois, births were not generally recorded on a county level until 1877, and the practice was not universal until 1916. Prior to 1916 births were only recorded at the county recorder’s office. After 1 January 1916, it became mandatory to record births at both the county recorder’s office and the Illinois Department of Public Health.
