Chicagoland Catholic Cemetery Burials Online at FamilySearch

Earlier today, a member of the Chicago Genealogy Facebook Group  mentioned that some Chicago-area Catholic burials can now be browsed online for free at FamilySearch. In response to that, Nick Gombash of Hungary Exchange  and Nick Gombash's Genealogy Blog  posted an easy-to-use list of links to the various cemetery records.  Nick's list is a very useful tool for Chicago-area research and so, with his permission, I'm sharing it here. Happy searching! And Happy Halloween!

Explore _Chicago Genealogist_ Online

In recent months, I've begun to work on polishing my research and writing skills and I've discovered that reading genealogy articles is an enjoyable way to study up. It's helpful to hear what people have to say, but it's also helpful to think about how they say it. This evening, I found myself wanting to read through back issues of The Chicago Genealogist , the Chicago Genealogical Society 's quarterly publication, and I discovered digital images of volumes 1-39 are online at CARLI Digital Collections. ("CARLI" stands for "Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois.") I decided to explore the collection and thought it might be useful to share a few things I learned. What do the publications include? Answer: Articles related to Chicago families, book reviews, queries, record transcriptions, and many lists of names of Chicago residents drawn from every imaginable source. So, how do you access the online images?
