    3. Chris, you would NEVER regret doing that for your sister.  It's a bit costly, but worth shopping around.  I used a monument company that had moved from Chicago to Carol Stream, which is in DuPage County and has a lower tax rate than Cook County.  They were great and very patient to work with.  It always bothered me that my grandmother was in this country such a relatively short time and no one ever knew she was there (at the cemetery).  It is a great feeling now when I visit the cemetery  to see that permanent marker.  Sometimes it's not about the money.

    1. [CHICAGO-POLISH] St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church
    2. Ruth Susmarski
    3. I've found a lot of information on the St. Nicholas website and other online sites, but have not had any luck locating a photo of the first church where Ukrainians worshiped in Chicago before the current church was built at Rice & Oakley Streets (Ukrainian Village). The first church these early immigrants established was known as St. Nicholas the Wonderworker Ruthenian Catholic Parish and was formerly a Danish Lutheran Church located at the corner of Superior and Bickerdike (now Bishop) Streets in Chicago when it was acquired in 1906. The cornerstone of the current St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church (now a Cathedral) was laid in 1913 and the first Mass celebrated on January 7, 1915 (Chrismas Day per the Gregorian calendar). Any suggestions where I might find a photo of the then Danish Lutheran Church (Superior & Bickerdike/Bishop).  I've visited the office at St. Nicholas and they do not have a photo in their archives. Thanks.

    1. [CHICAGO-POLISH] Images of America Bucktown Project
    2. Ruth Susmarski
    3. Hi Listers, The Images of America book series, published by Arcadia Publishing, has compiled wonderful books on the Avondale and Logan Square communities, as well as Polish Downtown. A few years ago, I suggested a book for their series on the Bucktown neighborhood, as it was the community where the earliest Polish and German immigrants settled on the north side of Chicago.  My understanding is that they require about 200 photos in order to publish such a book.  I could only provide one photo -- the old All Saints Polish National Church building built in 1895...before the "White Cathedral" building that was built in 1930 and which now serves as the Covenant Presbyterian Church. Does any know of a good source for old Bucktown photos circa the mid/late 1800s to perhaps the middle of the 20th century?  Do any listers have photos you would be willing to contribute for this project? Daniel Pogorzelski, Vice President of the NW Chicago Historical Society, has been a driving force behind the aforementioned Avondale and Logan Square books, and I wonder if he might be convinced into taking on the Bucktown project. Thanks, Ruth
