Re: Hoffman and Lott families
IL State Archives Databases:
If you do a global search, you must enter a comma after the surname, even if you list no first name, or you will get no hits.
You might try various spellings such as HOFFMAN, HOFFMANN, HOFMAN, HOFMANN, and Ann, Anna, Annie, etc.
The IL Death index is not included in the global search, and must be searched seperately:
Also, the Cook County Council Proceedsing files are not in the global index, and must be seperately searched.
