A note about our records:

The Woodland Cemetery's burial records are handwritten and have been maintained in manuscript-type old ledgers for over 150 years! The older burial records are handwritten in old German text.

Transcription of the burial records into a computerized database is finally underway, thanks to the efforts of several volunteers. You can only imagine what a painstaking task it is -- 22,000 records need to be entered, organized and sorted by a handful of people!

What information is available?

Depending on the year of burial, at a minimum, the burial record may contain the first and last name of the deceased, the date of burial, and the grave's location. In later years, other information, such as the age of the deceased, the undertaker's name and the price paid for the plot and/or burial are included.

How do I request information?

The easiest and most efficient way to request information is to send an email to mail@woodlandcemetery.net. Your email should contain the name of the deceased, the date of death and, if available, the grave location and/or plot number. Be advised, however, that until all of the burial records are transcribed, searches must be done by hand. Therefore, we ask you to be patient while we search for the information requested.

Since the Cemetery operates as a not-for-profit association, in exchange for providing you with information from our burial records, we ask that you make a small monetary contribution to help us continue our restoration efforts. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
