Your relatives lived on the South Side in Chicago which was primarily Irish
and German at one time. My family lived on the South Side also - in St,
Columbanus parish.

Following are some websites to help you locate the information you requested.

Chicago street maps - go into Google search engine -
- enter "Chicago Street Map"
You will get many options of accessing street maps of all of Chicago.

Parishes - you can go into the Archdiocese of Chicago website and click on
"parishes" to locate the specific parishes you want.

Cemeteries - I have relatives buried in both cemeteries you mentioned in your
email. Mt Olivet is located on 111th street - a few blocks of Western ave.
Holy Sepulchre Cemetery is located in Worth Illinois - on 111th Street -
around Ridgeland Avenue. You can go into the Chicago Archdiocese Cemetery website
to get additional info on each cemetery.

There is also another website which may be of interest you. This contains
both cemeteries.

By the way, all the streets you are searching are still in existance. New
maps will give you correct information.

Anything else, just let me know.
