Hello Nancy,

For Illinois there is a soundex index available on microfilm from the
National Archives...

Microfilm Series: M1285

Title: Soundex Index to Naturalization Petitions for the United States
District and Circuit Courts, Northern District of Illinois, and
Immigration and Naturalization Service District 9, 1840-1950 (179 rolls).

It covers the following Illinois counties: Boone, Bureau, Carroll,
Champaign, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Ford, Fulton, Grundy, Henderson, Henry,
Iroquois, Jo Daviess, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Knox, Lake, LaSalle, Lee,
Livingston, Marshall, McHenry, McLean, Mercer, Ogle, Peoria, Putnam,
Rock Island, Stark, Stephenson, Tazewell, Vermilion, Warren, Whiteside,
Will, Winnebago, and Woodford.

It's also available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City so
you can order the rolls from any local Family History Center.

Good luck with your search.
