Just in case no one is aware of this web site Findagrave.com it is fantastic !
You can enter any cemetery or grave information you have from any state or
location in the country . Some people have entered as many as 50,000 names &
places on this site .
It is very easy to use whether your searching for a cemetery or a grave , or
you can enter your own information for others to search .
This is being sent to you in case you haven't already heard
about it before.
I have just uncovered information that asks Kentuckians (or, I
guess even people from out of the state of Kentucky) to
let Kentucky's Task Force on Cemetery Preservation (Office of
the Kentucky Attorney General) know about the location of
Cemeteries which can allow the state of Kentucky provide
proper aid, etc. The 38 member Task Force on Cemetery
Preservation was formed by order of Gov. Patton sometime
earlier this year. This sounds like a way to apply for aid
to many of the historic & abandoned cemeteries throughout
I know I have heard many persons on many of these mailing lists
express concerns about the condition & care of old abandoned
cemeteries here in Kentucky.
There is a more detailed explanation at the following
website (all or most questions you have can be answered
when you visit this website):
Time is short. From the above website, you can download a
form to be filled out (or the form is also said to be available
at the county judge's offices throughout Kentucky).
IMPORTANT--This form must be filled out & submitted no later
than August 15, 2001.
So, if you have a cemetery (or cemeteries) within Kentucky
that you are interested in having the State of Kentucky providing
aid to, this form can filled out by any interested person & mailed
as instructed (especially historic cemeteries that are overgrown,
abandoned, and neglected).
Hope this interests all of you.
