    One thought on “Mount Carmel and Queen of Heaven Cemeteries”

    1. A lot of typos, redundancies, and wrong info (she writes about the Great Chicago Fire happening 70 years before 1900what?) but still not the worst Images of America book I've read there's that, I guess.

    2. Fascinating history of our family cemetery. Wish they had one for the other side of the family. Really enjoyed it.
