Find a Grave ID


I live in Chicago, Illinois and am working on records for my father's and mother's families primarily.
I enjoy taking photographs of grave sites for photo requests. I try to add helpful captions for locating the graves. I include a photo of the burial lot/location. I think it adds significant context. You are welcome to use any of the photos I post as you wish. Requests for photo files or transfers are welcome. Email [email protected] or use the edit tab on a memorial.

Please provide a location in the cemetery for your photo request. Contacting the cemetery is usually successful at obtaining a location. Info about the presence of a grave marker may also be available and is helpful. Locating unmarked graves can be very difficult.

If you want a photo of mine removed from your memorial or have higher quality photos than the ones I posted, please feel free to post them, then let me know, and I will remove mine.
