Date: Thu, 1 Jun 2006 10:19:04 EDT
We are pleased and excited to announce the following to our Genealogy
AN ALL NEW ROOTSWEB HOSTED WEBSITE
WHICH WILL PROVIDE FREE ACCESS
TO EVERY CEMETERY
IN KALAMAZOO COUNTY, MICHIGAN!
Our objective is to provide indexes of burials as well as photos and
transcription records of all gravestones in Kalamazoo County. We are certain this site
will become one of the premiere cemetery sites on the Internet!
The project is being provided in the best interest of the Genealogy Community
by a team of volunteers.
We currently have collected data for over 60,000 burials in Kalamazoo County,
and that data is in various stages of computerization. As each of the
cemeteries is completed, it will be added to our new site where it can be freely
accessed by all.
Our site is now available at the URL below. Keep in mind, we are just
beginning and we will continuously add each and every cemetery as we complete them.
In addition, cemeteries that have been completed will be updated yearly with
any new burials during the year. Our site is hosted by Rootsweb and will soon
be highlighted by Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter.
In addition to indexing burials we will have complete stone transcriptions,
cemetery maps, cemetery photos, grave photos, printable township reports,
printable cemetery reports and much more. We also have an e-mail list for those
who wish to be notified as the site is updated. Please visit often.
