Join Michael in Salt Lake in 2017!

There’s no bigger genealogy library than the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.

There are hundreds of drawers of microfilm at the Family History Library. Some like to keep track of what drawer their film was in before they put it back.

Every year I take a group to the library–we have one presentation each day and the rest of each day is devoted to research.

Our trip is from 31 May through 7 June 2017–we’re informal and focused on helping you with your research. There are additional details about our trip on our announcement page.

Join Michael for a week of research in Salt Lake!

Chicagoland (Illinois) Area Cemeteries on FamilySearch

FamilySearch recently released a database of cemetery information for Catholic cemeteries in the greater Chicago area. It is titled “Illinois, Archdiocese of Chicago, Cemetery Records, 1864-1989.” It is searchable. Check out our warning about using this database and only downloading imageselsie

However, sometimes names don’t get indexed properly or things get overlooked. Browsing the cemetery specific digital folders was somewhat difficult, so….

Nick Gombash of Hungary Exchange (http://www.hungaryexchange.com/) graciously allowed me to repost this list of direct links to the currently online Catholic cemetery information in the greater Chicago area.
