|I've been doing genealogical research since 1979 and am always adding and updating my records on this site and Ancestry. You will also find the people I have added here in Ancestry. I appreciate the kindness and generosity of those who share and contribute here. I am willing to transfer those that are not directly related to me, so don't be shy about asking. I try to document info. as best as I can, but am open to additions and corrections.|
I am in the process of adding names of those buried in the Read/Dunning/Cook County cemetery in Chicago. This is my way of honoring the people whose final resting place has been disturbed and defiled by construction. These folks were marginalized both in life and death, and deserve to be remembered.
NEW INFORMATION ON COOK COUNTY/DUNNING CEMETERY AS OF JANUARY 2013: The familysearch website recently removed the actual death certificates from Cook County from their website as part of an agreement with Cook County vital records dept. The death certificate index is still available on the website. This is a significant development for three reasons: 1. the index was created from handwritten records and thus the actual names are subject to individual interpretation, 2. there were/are actually three cemeteries that were located in the neighborhood formerly known as Dunning: 1. Read/Dunning/Cook Co. cemetery, 2. Mt. Olive cemetery and 3. a Jewish cemetery. (The two latter cemeteries are not part of Read/Dunning/Cook Co. cemetery in any way and are still open.) and 3. some of the death certificates that are listed under Dunning burials in the index were actually folks that died at Dunning but were buried elsewhere or their body was "donated to science."

|Bronzeville||Honoring the deceased|
Hello Sue F.
I just want to thank you for your commitment to honor the deceased. I would like to stay in communication with you. I have had many challenges with burial sites in Mississippi. I had no idea that those same challenges are here in Chicagoland.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
