Archdiocese of Chicago parish records through 1915 were filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah and the microfilms can be ordered in and viewed at any LDS Family History Center. The records may vary slightly by parish, but they generally include baptisms, confirmations, marriages, and burials. The information recorded in the registers varies by parish. For example, some marriage records include parent names but many do not. A quick way to see what's available is to follow the links to the Family History Library catalog from the POINTers in Person web page:

Where can you find vital statistics records for genealogy?

Vital statistics are birth, marriage and death records. They are usually found in official archives (if old enough) or in Health Department or Ministry of Health Records (if more recent). Depending on the religion of the person or the parents, they may also be found in religious community records such as Catholic Parish Record Books or Synagogue records.

In the Holocaust, why didn't the Jews say they were Christian?

Most European countries had (and still have) state churches. Some portion of every taxpayer's taxes go to pay for that church. By the 20th century, countries with sizable religious minorities began to recognize the value of religious diversity, and they offered state support to other churches. Germany, in particular, has large Protestant and Catholic communities, and Poland had large Catholic and Jewish communities. In those countries, the tax records contained, for each taxpayer, which state-funded religion got that taxpayer's church tax. The net result: The Nazis could simply look at the tax records to find the religion of each taxpayer. When the Germans invaded the Netherlands, the Dutch had a squad in charge of destroying those records, but the SS knew the importance of capturing those records and got there first.
