Burial records of three Chicago synagogues - South Side Hebrew Congregation, Ohavei Emunah and Etz Hayyim. The records include the deceased's name and death date, as well as cemetery section, lot and grave number. Records span from April 8, 1891 to May 27, 1952. They include some receipts for purchase and/or sale of cemetery plots, location, price paid and date of transaction. These cemetery records were indexed via CSI (Crowd Sourced Indexing).

Additional information about the history of the three congregations can be found here.
