The JGSI Jewish Chicago Database (JJCD) includes information compiled from cemeteries, obituaries, memorial plaques, retirement homes, and other Jewish organizations. JGSI is proud to offer free access to both members and non-members. This database is the result of many volunteer hours, and new information is added over time, so please check back.
For additional information, see the cemetery and project links, below.

Notice and Disclaimer:
The purpose of the information on this site is to assist members and other interested parties in locating the burial places of possible relatives. However, the information provided about family names and locations, at all except the Westlawn Cemetery, was developed by volunteers who assembled the information by physical inspection without any information from the cemetery or its records. Accordingly, neither JGSI, the cemetery nor any of the volunteers warrant or certify the accuracy of the names or locations. It is strongly recommended that anyone who finds information that may be of interest personally visit the cemetery before reaching any final conclusions.
