There are only a small handful of Internet sites that are putting up
sharp, clear digital images of genealogical records, the kind of
resources that genealogists want to use and will rely on for their
research.

www.FamilySearchLabs.org has been doing just that. They have just
added Cook County (IL) Marriage Records from 1900 to 1920 and
announced that they will expand these back further to 1871. Cook
County - is more than just Chicago - it includes the townships of
Barrington, Berwyn, Bloom, Bremen, Calumet, Cicero, Elk Grove,
Evanston, Hanover, Lemont, Leyden, Lyons, Maine, New Trier, Niles,
Northfield, Norwood Park, Oak Park, Orland, Palatine, Palos, Proviso,
Rich, River Forest, Riverside, Schaumburg, Stickney, Thornton,
Wheeling, Worth.
