Feel free to submit your family's burials by emailing Kim . Good information to include is name, date of birth/death, parents' names, spouse names if known. (No Family Trees or Gedcoms please!!) Do make sure that they are in fact buried in that particular cemetery before you email me :-)

I have no way of checking the information sent in and I provide this space only as a service to other researchers. So.....everyone needs to confirm for themselves the information they find on this page (and for that matter, any other website with genealogical data)
