Oops, my mistake.The State of IL keeps changing the rules. Looks like you can order a death certificate, as long as the death occurred 20 years ago or more. But you will most likely need an exact date of death to order the certificate -- at least if you want them to fill the order correctly. You might check with either the County or the IL Dept. of Public Health to order the record.Maybe, just maybe, they might search thru a year or two of death records to look for the certificate.If so, they will most likely charge you per year searched -- that is, if they will even do such a search.It's best to check with them first.
