Births

Birth Notices published in Mundelein Newspapers
The Mundelein Review, published by the Pioneer Press, and the Mundelein News, published by Lakeland Press are both weekly newspapers. For the purposes of this index, MR = Mundelein Review, and MN = Mundelein News. Birth notices were not printed every single issue; the index page will note if issues were missing.

The birth notices are listed by the last name of the child. Full birth notices give the names of the parents, date of birth, and the name of the hospital where the birth occured. Birth notices often give the names of the child's grandparents and siblings.

How do I get a copy of the complete birth notice?
The birth notices have been photocopied and filed by date in the library's local history collection. People may come in and make their own copies. People from outside our immediate area may request copies by mail; please include a stamped, self-addressed business sized envelope.
You must include the following information: 

  • Person's name
  • Date the birth notice was published
  • Name of the newspaper
