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!

Fred W. Jurgensen Found THANK YOU!!!
Hi Jessica - my name is Mike Jurgensen and thanks to you you helped my dad & I find my grandpa. We could not have done it without your help. I am in Chicago on business & my dad also flew in and we went to the cemetery today and found him. It was tough since the gravestones are covered with dead grass. We would like to thank you in person if that's at all possible but don't know how to do that in the most appropriate way. I'll be taking my mom & dad to church on Sunday 10/1/17 @ 11AM @ the Chicago Church of Christ downtown ministry located at Jones College Prep 700 S. State Street Chicago. We'd love to take you out to lunch after if you can. Since this is public I don't know how you would message us back but I just registered on this site so hopefully you can message me back. If not that's ok but just want you to know how thankful I am for this day. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

family of Slehofer
Hi Jessica, I'm going to give you some information to see if you have any knowledge of it. My grandmother's sister came from Bohemia in 1906 on the SS Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse. It said she was going to stay with her uncle, Frank Tesar, but there were also to others - Anton & Vaclav Slehofer that were going to stay with him, and they were brothers-in-law. A Marie Stal was going to stay with her brother, Joseph Slehofer. The Manifest had 2 addresses, but after 100+ years they don't exist now. But they were - 117 & 121 W. 19th St., Chicago Ill. I have no idea who Marie Stal was. If you are able to help me I will be so very grateful. My grandmother, Frances never spoke of her family, she came to America in 1910. I tracked down 1 sister in Cleveland, O. and my grandma stayed with her. There were supposed to be 4 other sisters, and their parents names are unknown, they were from Brehy, Bohemia.
I'll stop here so I don't totally confuse you if you aren't already. Thank you in advance with whatever you find or don't find. My email address is: margaret062250@att.net

RE: findfind relative
Thanks, I have the address of when she was married to her 1st husband, but I doubt if she still lives at that address. I'll google both names for addresses.
