Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved to visit cemeteries and thought it was a little weird until I found this website. Visiting a cemetary satisfies many of my favorite hobbies: plants ( Whenever I go, I walk around watering plants that people leave for their loved ones but are unable to come back and take care of), photography, and history. I especially like to visit old cemeteries to take pictures of the elaborate monuments. I'm really happy to discover there are thousands of you out there that feel the same.

I try to put as much information as I can find on the internet with each memorial and also try to include the source. Feel free to use any pictures of headstones and grave markers that I have uploaded on your family websites or Ancestry,com.

Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers. ~ Hans C. Andersen

RE: Queen Of Heaven Cemetery
Thank you for helping me out!! and I don't go out to Maryhill or Queen Of Heaven that often because they are a bit of distance from me and so that's why I need the extra help!!

Henry Budde
Thanks for the information Sonia, but I can't find which St. Peter's cemetery it is. His death record says he was buried in Niles Center Cemetery, but may have been moved. There are numerous St. Peter's, but none in Cook County.

Sonia, thanks for pointing out my error about the location of Harriet Breckenridge's grave. I have created a memorial for her at Memorial Park Cemetery as you pointed out.

Cresentia Matthei
Thank you so much for the work you do to provide others with info about family members. I had wanted to ask if you could change the info on my great aunt Cresentia MAtthei. You have listed as her father being Joseph Weinberger. Actually my great grandfather was Joseph Eiberger, he lived in niles center Illinois. Also the family is buried at St. Peter's Catholic Cemetary in Skokie. Thank you and I appreciate you help.
