Subject: [IRISH-IN-CHICAGO] Cook County Circuit Court Declarations of IntentDatabase
Date: Wed, 15 Oct 2008 19:14:43 EDT
Cook County has released the first part of its Declaration of Intent (for US
citizenship) database. The dates covered - 1871 to 1929.
There are many search criteria that can be used - surname, first name, town
of birth, country of birth, etc.
I entered just an unusual first name and got a results list.
The information listed are birth date, country and town of birth, date of
arrival into the US, date of filing the declaration of intent for citizenship.
The listing also includes volume, page, and declaration number, as well as
city and address at time of declaration, and occupation.
I was very luck on some family names, and batted zero on others. The
database is by no means complete at this stage.
