Illinois Obituary Records

Illinois obituaries are easy to find thanks to the Internet and the hard work of thousands of people from one end of the state to the other. The key to finding your Illinois obituary records is to start looking in the county or general region where the person lived. If you are searching for obits in the Belleville area, there is a huge online database you can search that contains listings from the Millstadt Enterprise from 1897 to 1949. If your loved one enjoyed reading the Freeburg Tribune, you can access their online obit index to search for listings from 1904-1939. Highland Park is a popular place to call home in this state and you can view obits online from here that date all the way back to 1874 to 2005. The Morton Grove Public Library can be accessed from the web and they offer obits from the 1970's to present day. If Skokie is your loved ones' final resting place, the public library offers free searches for listings from 1960 to present day. The Wheaton area also has listings from the 1920's and from 1977 onward. Many of the main Chicago papers also have free online index searches by last name.
