Early Dziennik Chicagoski Issues Online

Newspaper death notices are very useful for establishing family relationships. A death notice index for the Dziennik Chicagoski is on this site. If your relative had a death notice published from the newspaper from December 1890 through March 1913, you can now look it up online. Some years and months within that range are missing. Death notices are usually set off in black lined boxes. The Illinois Digital Newspaper Collections has digitized partial runs of this newspaper and many others. Even if you are not interested in looking up a death notice, you can browse the rest of the newspaper. They use optical character recognition (OCR) to make the newspapers text searchable but I cannot attest to how well that feature works.
