Burnt Records inconsistencies
The 1996 Loretta Szucs book states:
- The Burnt Record Series
- The Genealogical Society of Utah has microfilmed the Burnt Record book series 1871-1932, (created as a result of the Burnt Records Act) with indexes on 49 microfilm reels. The original records, available through the Law Division of the Circuit Court (Room 1201), must be ordered from the warehouse where they are stored.
- Note 49 microfilm reels
- The Genealogical Society of Utah became Family Search and here is their record:
- Burned record series books, 1871-1932
- Authors: Illinois. Circuit Court (Cook County) (Main Author)
- Salt Lake City, Utah : Filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah, 1982-1986
- 121 microfilm reels ; 35 mm.
- Microfilms of original records located at the Cook County courthouse and warehouse in Chicago, Illinois.
- Includes indexes.
- File no. 11, 39, 43, 47, 49, 72, 88, 94, 186, 210-267, 531, 553-555, 668, 766, 1081, 1143-1144, and 1187 are missing.
- Note that they say 121 microfilm reels and also, the delineation of each microfilm reel only goes up to 1903. Yet, the Szucs book and Family Search record say 1932.
- A partial answer from Family Search ask a question states: "The microfilms have been digitised, but are NOT viewable digitally. They appear to be only available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City."
- Is the availability at the the Family History Library in Salt Lake City via the digitized version or the microfilm version or both? Is it available at other Family History libraries?
