Prairie Lawn Cemtery seeks geneology information

Prairie Lawn Cemetery District board of directors are in the process of placing all the cemetery district data into a computer database.

The program includes a section for genealogy information.

As of Jan. 1, 2008, at the time of the burial of a loved one, family members will receive a form on which to enter genealogy information. The form will then need to be sent to Carmen South, 11824 N. E. 60th St., Peabody KS 66866.

For individuals whose family members were buried at Prairie Lawn Cemetery prior to Jan. 1, 2008, genealogy forms may be obtained from any Prairie Lawn director and returned to South at the above address.

Board members are: Delbert Mellott, 609 Poplar St., 983-2878; Bob McVey, 1332 40th St., 983-2929; Keith Harsh, 700 West Third St., 983-2283; Carmen South, 11824 N. E. 60th St., 983-2512; and Maxine Seibel, 897 N. Vine, 983-2633.

The board hopes to compile as complete a database as possible about those buried in the cemetery. For more information or answers to questions, contact any member of the board of directors.
