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!

Adler Family
Yes, that would make sense, however, the previous owner of Joseph's Memorial posted a Census with burial data. Are you able to verify? Also, do you see a Memorial for their mother Sarah Adler?
