Subject: [IRISH-IN-CHICAGO] Bohemian National Cemetery in Chicago

Hi Listers............

I've been working on digitizing the records at this historic Chicago landmark where my Bohemian/Czech mother is buried along with three generations before her. I am amazed at the Irish buried in this cemetery! I guess there are a lot of Irish/Bohemian folks just like me. Hope you'll help with the restoration of the wooden water tower logging on to the website listed below and voting.
