The staff at Calvary are very helpful. The cemetary is very large. You will
often find small labels on the headstones that will help you locate the
graves you're looking for. Call ahead and check their hours to make sure
someone will be in the office so you can get a map and pinpoint where you
need to look. The cemetary is located on the water, just north of the city
proper in Evanston.

I am going to be making a trip to Chicago in April. I know where the
ancestors are buried (in Calvary) and that they attended Holy Family. I have
the Obit's for just about all of them. I have no idea what part of Ireland
these Hennessys were from or where they got into the country. Can anyone
familiar with this area tell me how to get to Holy Family and Calvary
Cemetery. Is the parish open to genealogists? Are they helpful? How about
staff at the cemetery? Does anyone have any pointers or advice? Good
