Several SSGHS members have worked to create indexes to records from Otto Funeral Home, which was located at 10929 Michigan Avenue in Chicago’s Roseland neighborhood. The record is a card filled out by the employees of the funeral home. One side of the card records the following information:

  • place of death
  • full name of the deceased
  • address of the deceased
  • marital status
  • name of spouse (if applicable)
  • age
  • occupation
  • birthplace
  • name of father
  • father’s birthplace
  • name of mother
  • mother’s birthplace
  • name of informant
  • date of birth
  • physician’s name
  • burial place
  • date of burial.
  • Sometime the cause of death is listed.
  • The other side of the card records the cost of the casket and other items for the funeral.

See the index below to see if your relative is listed.

Cost per item copied: $2 for members/ $5 for non-members.
