How To Locate Someone in a Chicago Cemetery?

Hi Everyone!

One of my fellow librarians shared with me a link to a web site that provides some simple, matter-of-fact guidelines to help discover the burial location of someone who may be buried in Chicago, IL.

The list of questions to ask and resources to pursue is basic but sometimes seeing them may trigger you to realize that there is a step you may not have done in your efforts to discover ancestors buried in Chicago.

So I thought I would just share with you this link to this online article from eHow.com.  You can access the material at:

Review your own efforts to discover information to help you find burial locations in Chicago of your ancestors and compare them with the 8 items listed in this research aid.

Enjoy the article.
