Mappy Monday: Chicago Nostalgia Trip

I just got back from a week-long visit to Chicago that included visits to all the sites in green (both pegs and diamonds) and orange.  Diamonds are museums or libraries; pegs are mostly houses, apartment buildings, or churches.  Green indicates an original building that I visited and/or photographed; orange means the original building is no longer there but I visited the site.  Blue indicates facilities I didn't get to visit this time that are still standing; red means I also didn't see it this visit but the original building is gone.  Purple pegs and yellow stars are other points of reference for this visit, not relevant to family history.

You can use the plus or minus in the lower left corner to enlarge or reduce the size of the map.  Click on a marker to read more about it - and maybe even see a photograph!  You can also click on the map and drag it around to better view different areas.

Markers are in Wilmette, Evanston, Rogers Park and West Ridge in far north Chicago, and Bridgeport and Marquette Park in the near south side of Chicago.  There are a number of other markers for places on the north side of Chicago that I was not able to visit on this trip; those will be for the future!

Watch this blog for future posts on these sites!
