A quick review by me shows this is a “keeper” site for you to bookmark on your browsers.
You can get to this site here:
Check out the alphabetical listings sections of the cemeteries.
Check out the geographic section by township identification and see what cemeteries are within each township to help you correlate ancestral family locations by township.
Also, browse through the various blog posts. I looked at the one in the most recent list titled “Chicago Area Undertakers” and saw that it was loaded with all kinds of old-time advertisements related to Chicago undertakers (Skeeles Bros. $25 casket, $65, casket and funeral!). “Undertaker” was the title used back in the day in comparison to today’s title of “Funeral Director”.
I think if you have any Chicago ancestral connection you really must browse through the variety of blog posts under the category of “cemeteries”. They are historically fascinating to read as well as look at all of the sundry included documents and maps and images.
This is really a fun site to spend some time exploring. The pictures, maps and advertisements will just keep pulling you in deeper and deeper.
This is the time of the year in our area for you to do your cemetery research on site and not just by tapping your fingers on a keyboard. Of course, I don’t think I would head out to a cemetery on one of our recent 97 degree summer days. But our “cemetery” season is relatively short to visit the final resting places of our ancestors. You can really get some good info at this site to use to prepare for any on-site cemetery research you plan on doing over the next 3-4 months in our area.
Enjoy this site!
