The crew of Greenwood Cemetery has spent thousands of hours in an effort to compile the best records possible. Our handwritten records go back to the early 1900's. We have sought to compile better records by examining every lot in the Cemetery, by going through old funeral home records, by reading obituaries from old newspapers and by input from family members.
There are many conflicts in the various sources of information. We choose which information we believe to be most accurate based on the weight of evidence. Obviously, there are times when we choose wrongly when dealing with records that are more than 100 years old.
You can help us correct our records if you know of errors by contacting us with the error and documentation to prove that you are correct.
The records include burials in Greenwood Cemetery and also burials in other cemeteries as we have gathered information from obituaries and from funeral homes.
There are currently more than 80,000 records in the report and more than 53,000 obituaries available.
