See this information from the Illinois State Archives site. Looks like the
LDS have filmed this, too, and you might check ancestry.com. Diane

Sam Fink's Index to Pre-Fire Chicago Marriages, 1833–1871

Marriage records with the word FINK in the license field were transcribed
from a microfilm copy of the typescript Chicago Marriage and Death Index compiled
by Sam Fink. Mr. Fink's compilation of pre-1872 marriages was an attempt to
recover information about early Cook County marriages lost in the Great Fire of
Chicago on October 8–10, 1871. The index includes the names of the bride and
groom, the date of the marriage and the newspaper in which the marriage
appeared.

The Sam Fink Index was microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah and a
copy of this microfilm is located at the Illinois Regional Archives Depository
(IRAD) at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. The only additional
information that this depository can provide is the name of the newspaper in
which the marriage appeared. Information entered into the Sam Fink Index was
transcribed from the following Chicago area newspapers:

>
> Chicago Evening Journal
