Chojnacki Graves
Hello there. I only found two of the seven burial stones that you listed for Section A, Block I, Lot 24 at Resurrection. I walked around a bit and didn't find anyone other than Michael and Jozef. I quickly fulfilled these while visiting relatives (I have over 50 buried there) and placing a Christmas wreath for my grandparents. I can check again in a couple of weeks as long as it doesn't snow. Take care.

Resurrection Photo Requests
Dear GeneaProtector

Hello, I am asking for a larger request, but please read. Please tell me if this is too much. I noticed you've taken some pictures at Resurrection cemetery, in Justice, Illinois, and I was wondering if you could take some pictures for me. Their names are:

Anthony (Antoni) Ciezopka 1884-1945
Caroline (Galdyn) Ciezopka 1894-1945
Wladyslaw Ciezopka 1922-1923
Anthony Kuska 1879-1942
Victoria Zamas (Kuntel, Knutel, Wronczek, Kuska) Zamas was last married name to John Zamas. Victoria was not married to Anthony Kuska, he just may be related.

In addition to this, I would like to know if you would go to the plot with the Kania's, (Stanislaw Kania 1878-1950, and Maryanna Kania 1882-1918) and take pictures of the graves around there, so I can see if I can recognize the names. But, I would also like to know if you could take picture of the graves around Anthony Kuska, and Victoria Zamas, also to see if I can recognize the names. Because we don't know the names of the graves around them, please email em those pictures at my email: I know this is a lot to ask for, but please tell me if it is too much for you. I really appreciate volunteers work, and this is no easy task, but I am unable myself to go to the cemetery. Thank you sooooooo much!!!!

Please accept the photo requests as well, if you do decide to do this.

St Adalbert Cemetery-Chmielarczyk gravesite
Hi-I found where Maria and Andreas Chmielarczyk are interred but there are no stones for them. Also interred in the same lot is the Karolczak family:
Szczepan Karolczak (1848-Apr 11, 1903)
Mary Karolczak (1893-1975)
Frank Karolczak (1895-1958)
Let me know if you want me to post a picture of the Karolczak monument on the pages for Maria and Andreas and if the Karolczak's are related and you want to create pages for them let me know as I did take pictures of their stones too...Mary

Jeff Alm
Please add Jeffrey Lawrence Alm to the CSHS Class of 1986. Plenty of photos and research on him. He comes up on a search on the site as well. He played football at Notre Dame (1988 National Champions) and played for the Houston Oilers before his death in 1993.

Incorrect burial site photo
Dear GeneaProtector,

Thank you for registering my father's grave Memorial #133208564 William T. O'Brien (Holy Sepulchre). I was just curious to see if any records of my father and other family members appeared in the database and found that someone had already entered his information. Most of it was correct. I edited the correct dates of birth & death. I tried contacting one of the photo contributor's William Kazupski, as he had submitted a photo which I do not recognize as my father's grave site. The photo has text describing the burial site and states that there is no marker. This is not correct. He does have a grave marker. My father is buried in section 49 which is very close to his brother Paul F. O'Brien and his brother-in-law, Martin H. Rafacz, both of whom you also entered in the database. I would eventually like to have a correct photo of his grave. I looked at street view in Google Maps and the photo that appears in this record has a view onto Ridgeland Avenue. My dad is actually buried in the middle of the cemetery across from to the main building where they perform the funeral masses. doesn't appear to be Holy Sepulchre. I would appreciate if that photo is removed and/or replaced with the correct one.
Thank you for your help. Kind regards, Jennifer (O'Brien) Wellink

RE: Anna the SInger
Thank you for adding bio for Anna (Анна Герман). Are you sure you want to proceed with the Famous status? You will loose ability to manage her memorial page. I won't do that. Every singer and actor in days of Soviet Union were so popular and famous, because of the political system we lived in.... You can't imagine all of them to have a Famous status though. They were famous among one/two countries (Russia, Ukraine, Poland), but absolutely unknown to the rest of the world.
I believe, that Famous status must be for people who are known to entire world only. It is my personal opinion.

Best regards,

Brooks Cemetery
A little 'heads-up' on Brooks Cemetery.

In past years I trekked to this cemetery to do F-A-G photos. A year ago I stopped going because the cemetery has become poorly maintained, many of the gravestones are broken or illegible, and just walking around is a hazard with holes, exposed tree roots, and low-hanging branches.

I wish you luck on obtaining photos from here because I think word has gotten around to F-A-G people that this cemetery is an unpleasant place to research.

God bless.
