During the COVID-19 pandemic while our library has been closed, I have been active with this blog highlighting many of the databases available within Ancestry Library Edition. I also wanted to make you aware of a wonderful, easy to read database in FamilySearch.
One of the previous blog posts I created was on using the “Illinois, Archdiocese of Chicago Cemetery Records, 1864-1989” database within FamilySearch.org. Here is where you can find the this blog post and read through it in its entirety:
I decided to create a 17 minute screencast showing researchers the highlights of this database and how to use it with some real life examples of searching and reviewing results.
This screencast has been published on our library’s YouTube Channel.

This is a fun database that can be accessed from within FamilySearch.org. You will need an account with FamilySearch with a username and password to access the images that exist in this database. The account is free if you do not have one. The blog post above will give you information on creating an account.
Reading the blog post on this database is one thing. Seeing a visual description is another thing on how to access it and use it to help you in your own research. This is a fun database containing tons of images of your Catholic ancestors’ cemetery records from the Archdiocese of Chicago records, almost all of them as index cards that are very readable.
Check out the links above if you missed my previous blog post on this wonderful database. Check out the newly updated screencast to see how to best use this wonderful and fun database.
