I will also warn all of you to be careful. In my case HILB is the surname I
am searching for and it came up with a long list of them. If the first name
is abbreviated it is possible it is not the correct last name and only the
first 4 letters. I have a large amount of the records I ordered that appear
to be somewhat misleading! See the example below:
HILB, AGNES ADeath 6004678 2/13/1930 - this is a good record
HILB, AL Birth 5/11/1917 - this is a record for Alice Hilberg
I have notified Cook County as well as requested a refund for the ones
incorrectly listed. I am still excited by what I was able to get, but a
little disappointed in the misleading on the names and want to let you all
know to be careful. The problem is you don't know until you purchase it!
Thanks Vicki Hilb
