Back in August, Michael Neill gave us a tip about a website for those with roots in Chicago–ChicagoAncestors.org. Now that website has been updated with some new interactive features that allow users to add their own map points and comment on other entries.
The website allows you to search by address and locate Lutheran and Catholic Churches and other resources in the vicinity. Also be sure to check out the tools section which has links to some great resources like 1909 street numbering changes, 1911 street name changes, 1866 business directory, maps, a tutorial to “Researching Pre-Fire Chicago,” and a collection of helpful links.
