Find A Grave is defined as a website that allows the public access to an online database of cemetery records.  The public can view images of graves, photographs, biographies, obituaries, etc.  These uploaded items are provided by volunteers.

The cemetery committee members have been working hard to try to answer any questions that you may have.  Gary Jones has created the PowerPoint that will be used.  If you have any issues, problems, concerns, or success stories, please share them with the committee.
