Read and Use Ancestry.com Descriptions with Care

At the time of this writing the Illinois State Deaths and Stillbirths Index from 1916 to 1947 at Ancestry.com contained a description indicating the database was only for Cook County records. It is statewide. This blog post discussed the error in more detail.

Take care with database descriptions. They were written by humans.
