Bohemian National Cemetery.

The Chicago Genealogical Society has published six volumes of burials at Bohemian National Cemetery in Chicago. The second volume, covering burials from 1888-1892, is currently out of print. Our online index gives burial year, burial month, name of the deceased, and the issue date of an obituary in the Czech-language newspaper "Denni Hlasatel".

Our Society can look up the burial information for a specific person for you. You will get these details: the burial number, the burial date (YYMMDD), the grave location, age, birthplace, place of death, death date (YYMMDD), and if the coroner was the attending physician.

You can find this index by going to the Online Library page.

PLEASE NOTE: We have been experiencing some problems with the Vital Records lookup form. As of February 10, 2003, the forms seems to finally work correctly. If you have submitted a lookup for Vital Records prior to February 10, 2003, please re-submit your requests. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Vital Records Database for 1833 to 1848.

The Chicago Genealogical Society has created a composite index to our seven-volume set of Vital Records From Chicago Newspapers. These books contain genealogical data extracted from Chicago newspapers published from 1833 through 1848. Lengthy articles such as obituaries and accident reports were abstracted. The events took place in Cook County as well as many of the northern counties in Illinois. All seven books (1833-1848) are now online, which gives the following information: surname, 1st name, place, event, page number, year. The place can be either where the event took place or where someone was from. The event can be i.e. a marrriage, a death, a court action, etc.

You can find this index by going to the Online Library page.
