I am trying to find someone who would be willing to visit the Shalom Memorial Park Cemetery, Skokie, in the Chicago area to take a picture of a gravestone of one of my family members.  The exact address of the cemetery is 1700 W. Rand Road, Arlington Heights, IL 60004

I can supply more details of the names of the deceased individuals and the gravestone location if you are able to help me.

I would appreciate hearing from anyone would would be able to do this for me.  I will be glad to reimburse you for any expenses involved.  Please reply to me privately.

Many thanks!

I would be happy to take pictures for you. My family is buried there, but the problem being all the graves are are flat and covered in snow, so it is possible to find any graves now. 
Let me know. No cost needed.

I can help too. Same issues though. Mostly snow covered. Always glad to lend a hand. May have to wait a while, up to 6" of snow expected by tomorrow!

If you call the cemetery a day or two before you are coming and give them the grave information, they will clear the snow from the grave and from path to it from the road. Obviously this only helps if it doesn't snow in the interim. Also, be aware that many of the stones do not contain much information, often just English name and birth year and death year.

Hello Roy
 
I have not forgotten to get the pictures you wanted. Because of the Covid-19 the office is closed and we are on a stay at home order as most of us are. As soon as I can I will go to Shalom Memorial.
