  1. Illinois is definitely up at Heritage.com as I just found both of my parents, all my grandparents and maternal great-grandparents (one set) in Chicago. I used stevemorse.org and then put the ED number in at Heritage, worked great. I just looked them up for the moment, will go back and get details later.
