Available Genealogical Records
WELCOME TO THE KANE COUNTY GENEALOGY SITE!
Kane County Clerk John A. Cunningham welcomes you to our Kane County Genealogy Site! Search your lineage and important life events of those you hold dear.
We have birth records starting in 1855, death records from 1866 and marriage records starting in 1836. Keep in mind that all births, marriages and deaths will have to have taken place in Kane County, Illinois. Also, prior to 1916, state law did not require births, deaths or marriages to be filed. So some records may not have been recorded. Birth records will be available online if the document is 85 years or older; death records will be available if the record is 20 years or more; and marriage certificates will be available if document is 50 years old or more.
The Kane County Recorder’s office has land records available from 1836 call 630-232-5935. The Kane County Circuit Clerk’s office has probate records, filed wills, divorce records and some early naturalization records call 630-232-3413.
Also the Kane County Genealogical Society has a master index of Kane County Settlers from tax lists, cemetery records, church histories and other resources. We are also providing links to other sources in Kane County for record searches that may be of assistance to you.
