As identified above, the list of registers under "All Saints Parish (Chicago: S State)" incorrectly includes eight registers that are not applicable to this parish. (Those registers should instead be listed under "All Saints Parish (Chicago: Wallace St)".)
FamilySearch.org identifies the parish as "All Saints Parish (Chicago: S State)" rather than as "All Saints Parish (Chicago: S Wabash)". It was the parish rectory that was located on State Street. The church was not located on State Street until a new church was dedicated in 1960.
The FamilySearch.org list of records for "All Saints Parish (Chicago: S State) includes three "superfluous" sets of records that, although valid, are unnecessary to view because they are totally contained within other sets that have wider date ranges. These are: (1) "Marriages 1906-1915" [which is contained within "Marriages 1906-1925 with index"]; (2) "Baptisms 1906-1915" [which is contained within "Baptisms 1906-1921 with index"]; and (3) "Deaths 1906-1915" [which is contained within "Deaths 1906-1926 with index"].
Town Name vs. Neighborhood Name. Some entries within the records show locations of "Roseland, Illinois" and "Kensington, Illinois". Roseland and Kensington were actually names of neighborhoods in Chicago, but it was typical at the time to refer to them in this manner. Roseland and Kensington had at one time been outside of Chicago, but by 1906 they were within Chicago.
Parish Location "Kensington" vs. "Roseland". The title pages of the earliest registers (1906) give the location of the parish as "Kensington, Illinois", but the parish church, built in 1908, was located in the Roseland neighborhood of Chicago (and not in the Kensington neighborhood of Chicago). This situation happened because, when the original registers were created in 1906, the parish had not yet chosen the actual location where the church would be located. My guess is that the location was listed in 1906 as "Kensington" because at that time the pastor lived in Kensington (in a rented apartment at 115th Street and S. Indiana Avenue).
