Follow Stacy's advice in her answer previous. Just in case the Cook County Treasyurer's office gives you a tax bill that shows "Taxpayer of Record" or a Trust Account, you can also try the Cook County Recorder of Deeds at At the Recorders Office you can search by PIN number (which you'll get at the Assessor's office) and read one-line descriptions of all the documents that are recorded against the property. If you're really serious about digging up information, you can purchase a copy of the full document at the Recorder's website for around $1 per page.
