      Text: Oak Park, Illinois Name Index This table contains names I have found in the Oak Park Oak Leaves newspapers, currently being published by the Pioneer Press newspapers, and in the various Oak Park Direc tories. I have most of the hard copies of items found in my index. I do my research at the Oak Park Public Library, which has microfilmed copies of the Oak Leaves, as well as city directories and phon e books for Oak Park. The library does have a "old-fashioned" card catalog index that lists citations of items published in the Oak Park papers. Usually that is my first step, is to take your surname , and check there first. If I can find something, great, because I can get the date, page of newspaper right there, and the microfilm is easy to use. However, often times I need a death date, or at le ast some info about the person to help me with my search. Please provide as much information as you can! It should also be noted that many surrounding suburbs "blended" during the early part of this c entury. The directories often include River Forest, Forest Park, Berwyn, and Maywood references; as well as the Austin community of the city.
