Genealogical Searches at Cleveland's Lake View Cemetery

Pictured below is a post card of the Garfield Monument at Cleveland's Lake View Cemetery:























By reading a recent blog post at Linda Jean Limes Ellis's EXPLORING ALMOST FORGOTTEN GRAVESITES IN OHIO, I learned of this fabulous link to the search feature at Lake View Cemetery's database of burial records. It is easy to use, and once you retrieve the name, there is also a link to a map within the cemetery's grounds. Thanks so much for this great tip Linda!

Your blog is terrific too!

This cemetery is a must see for anyone interested in genealogy and cemeteries. The beautiful Tiffany windows in the Wade Chapel are breathtaking and President Garfield's coffin is right out in the open in his monument. AND, I agree.....Linda does a wonderful blog.

Thank you both, Linda and Dorene! I have ancestors buried in Lake View and I didn't know about this feature! Awesome!
