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!

Can't remember if I thanked you for taking and posting her photo, but since I saved the email I probably didn't.

I really do appreciate the time you take to fulfill the photo request and then posting them,

Thanks,
Shirley Hogue

I'm not sure if I am just not able to remember this ask or why I did, since I can not find a Roman Strek or a Maryanna in my tree. I don't even know how long ago the request was??

Oak Forest Cemetery
Jessica,

Thank you for the information about the burials at Oak Forest Cemetery. It's so sad that there are such a number of people resting there with no markers or identification.

I appreciate your help in determining the location of Mr. Albert Hawley.

All the best,
Beverly Poole
