Volunteers Identifying the Graves of Fallen Chicago Police

I was watching our local news and found a story that I thought all family historians would appreciate. Volunteers are identifying the unmarked graves of Chicago police officers who have been killed in the line of duty. A local monument company is donating gravestones to mark their resting places. It’s on a segment of the news called, “Someone You Should Know.” I have to agree. What a wonderful and worthwhile project.

You can read more or view the segment on the ABC7 News website.

One thought on “Volunteers Identifying the Graves of Fallen Chicago Police

  1. Any ideas re: how to find any records of an ancestor who (probably) died in the Big Chicago Fire? Are there any lists of those who died in the fire? Any lists of those who were not found after the fire, whose address was within te area of the fire?
