Death Certificate Lookup

ISGS has established this service to assist members and researchers who do not have easy access to the Illinois State Archives to obtain death certificate copies. Cost per certificate is $6.00 for ISGS members and $10.00 for non-members. You may send as many requests at the same time as you wish.
 
To obtain non-certified copies of death certificates from the 1916-1947 timeframe, please follow these steps:
  • Go to the Illinois State Archives Death Certificate Index (link opens in new window)
     
  • Search for the individual death certificate(s) you want.
     
  • After you find the correct certificates(s), print or copy down the information exactly as displayed on your screen.
     
  • Order Online - If you would like to order online using a MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express or a PayPal account, you can use our shopping cart below. Your information is kept safe and secure by the PayPal payment service.
     
  • Order by Mail - If you would prefer to mail your request, print out the ISGS Death Certificate Request Form and transfer the death certificate information to the form. Mail the form along with your check made payable to the Illinois State Genealogy Society to the address shown on the form. (Note: Credit cards are only available online.) 
If you have any questions, email isgsoffice@ilgensoc.org.
