Question:

One of my great-grandfather's siblings I know was murdered in the 1890's.  I have found some newspaper articles, but are there records for those convicted of murder in Chicago, Illinois back then?

 

Answer:

The information on Chicago homicides are actually on a searchable database from Northwestern University.  You can search a database of victims and criminals form 1870 to 1930 online at: http://homicide.northwestern.edu/
