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!

RE: Maltz, Robinson and Rosenthal
Jessica thanks so very much for the specific facing directions!!!As I hope to go back to the cemetery to finish my grave cleaning project when the weather gets warmer for my natural cleaning liquids to dissolve the algae and pollutants,weed wacking,and weed killing.I've cleaned 12 spots thus far 2016 and still need to get to my mother's other side of her family the goldsteins,rosenthals, her brother's wife's family,and also the Hurwitz graves of my great grandmother's brother's second wife's relations.It's both a pleasure and honor to address all these ancestors.They exist so I can be here in America too.Again thanks for participating in the task of documenting these people who risked everything to come to America!!!

dora maltz and ida robinson
Hi Jessica,Thanks for being so cordial.I was in the office of Waldheim this past thurs. afternoon and I was wondering in you have exact coordinates for dora/sam maltz and ida/abe because they're are part of the silverman and Weiss co owners of Waldheim.I would be so grateful if you happened to have written down a row number,grave # behind the anshe ticktin gate 58 where all the other rosenthals are(other 2 sisters,parents,grandparents,and infant Thomas and a brother inlaw.)I kind of wanted to go to the original source of discovery.I can't tell you how elated I am that you've captured another 2 siblings of the original 10 rosenthals.I have another 5 to find.It's nice because your info. I can relay to the other Rosenthal relations to the 10 siblings.I kind of like to spread the word and make others feel a little more happy or content.For example on thurs. I found out that the other side of my family had a six person crypt at Waldheim which unearthed another unknown related person.(no pun intended).Thanks again and if you have any specifics on dora and ida please email me.Ps. I don't know if I really want to assume ownership,as long as you'll allow me to add immediate family pics to the memorials.It makes searches for more relations easier within one family.

ida robinson rosenthal
Jessica I hope you're not upset,but I added grave photos for both dora maltz and ida robinson both rosenthals of their parents and two sisters.I didn't add the elder brother manny/later mendel.I wanted to keep the family together somehow and also have all my third cousins find me too.I've found manny's great grandson and also a sol Rosenthal's daughter named for her grandmother sarah recently all by connecting the family.Please don't be upset with adding more pics to your memorial,I just want everyone to find each other and share their histories for future generations to be educated.Thanks for taking pics of ida and dora.I hope to find the last of the other siblings soon.Thus far we're up to 5 of the 10 siblings all thanks to you!!! Feel free to add the numbers to the memorials of ida and dora or just leave them with the photos descriptions I left!!! Be Well!!!
