Cemeteries are rich in local history. The tombstones contain valuable information on the early settlers of the region. Many burials took place before records were being kept at local township and/or county levels. At South Suburban Genealogical and Historical Society, there was a group of devoted volunteers who conducted readings of the tombstones in local cemeteries and published their efforts…With gratitude to them, [the Society] continued and expanded their efforts. Thanks to newer technology, [the Society] has been able to combine the indices from all the cemetery readings into a master index for the township and a huge master index for all the cemetery readings.
