The Mormons have the information on microfilm, which you can order from
their local Family History Center in your areafor a nominal fee. Before
you go there to order, you can look up the reel numbers from the
internet at: http://www.familysearch.org/ Search>Family History
Library Catalog or go directly to it at:
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp . This
isn't necessary as the helpful people staffing the FHC will assist you.

Copied from their website: Family History Centers:

• Family history centers are branches of the Family
History Library.
• Over 3,500 family history centers operate in more
than 80 countries.
• Local family history centers are staffed by
helpful volunteers.
• About 100,000 rolls of microfilm are circulated
to family history centers each month.
• To locate the nearest family history center, call
800-346-6044 in the United States and Canada.

The Diocese of Chicago has a website also
http://www.archdiocese-chgo.org/
which has the place and hours of their church records research center. I
haven't been there and cannot tell you about it, maybe someone else on
this list has.
