Historic Glenview Cemeteries

There is a new information link for historic Glenview cemeteries on the Library's genealogy web page. It lists cemeteries in or near Glenview in which members of Glenview founding families are buried. Included under the name of each cemetery are its location, a few significant family names associated with it, and where it is transcribed.

If you are interested in cemetery transcriptions, some of them are included in Some German Name Cemeteries, Cook County, Illinois Volume 1, by Gertrude Lundberg, at call number RL920.07731 LUN, and in the microfilm Cemetery Records by Gertrude W. Lundberg, which is kept at the Reference Desk.

Cemeteries not mentioned in this list can be researched at at Transcriptions of cemetery headstones are often done by genealogical societies, and may be found by searching the OCLC FirstSearch database or Google Books by name of cemetery.
