I went to my local Catholic Cemetery this morning to do a quick look up for a friend on facebook. She is have a hard time finding an ancestor that she is not sure of what last name she was buried under. I figured I could go and use the kiosk and hopefully find her.
Well, today I learned that the powers that be, that control our access to the records have made some changes. On 3/14/2012, their was an update to their system and as of that date, you can only look up who is buried in that cemetery. Previously, you were able to look up all the Chicago area cemeteries.
I questioned the gentleman in the office and he did not know they had made that change. He was nice enough to check the other cemeteries for me (its good to see they did not change that). He did say that he was going to make some calls to look into the changes with the information on the kiosk, because it was not something that they had been made aware of. I will be keeping an eye on this to see if they change it back and keep you posted
