Bio and Links
I am a photo volunteer for Chicago. I love genealogy and enjoy helping others find photos of the resting places of their ancestors.

Almost all of the cemeteries in the city of Chicago are very large, with thousands of burials...please include a section/plot number with your photo request. Thank you!

Jessica,
I see you took a photo of this grave # 150934105
for Harry S. Holmes. I am trying to find out if he is my Aunt's late husband. Her name was Mary (Maime)Olinski Holmes. They lived in Chicago. Maybe you just snapped a pic. or maybe Harry is related to you . Any info would be great. Thank You

You rock! I found her on the 1880 census with a different spelling after emailing you. Always great to double check! Thanks so much.
