Attention Genealogy Enthusiasts
Cook Memorial Public Library District is proud to announce that we have been selected as a Library Affiliate of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. This means that you can order genealogy microfilm (birth, marriage, death, probate, land, military records and more) from the Family Search website for $7.50 per reel, and it will be delivered to the Cook Park Library in Libertyville. We will house the microfilm for you, and you can come in and view it any time the library is open. The microfilm is loaned for 90 days, and can be renewed for 60 days. You can also request that the microfilm be kept on indefinite loan, for additional cost.
Order microfilm from the Family Search Catalog after setting up a free account. You will be notified by email when the microfilm has been received. Need some help getting started finding and ordering microfilm? Attend our Genealogy Networking Group meeting at the Cook Park Library at 7 pm on March 7 to learn how to do it, or call the Reference Desk and ask for Thomas, Sonia or Jenny B.
