  • Cemetery names that have the names as "underlined" links, point to a separate page that lists names & info of family members buried at that particular cemetery.
  • Cemetery names that have the words "More Info! or Haunted Info!" as "underlined" links, point to a (separate non-ILGenWeb) website page that may provide historical or other info on that cemetery. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONTENT ON THESE SITES, SO PLEASE ONLY NOTIFY US IF THE LINK IS BROKEN...
