Transcribing Disclaimer

"Cemetery & Research Association of La Porte County News" disclaimer for cemetery readings:
"This website was developed and is sustained by volunteers who donate their time and personal resources for the purpose of providing valuable research information to fellow researchers. We are dedicated to providing free access to La Porte County cemetery listings. If you have documentation of a burial which does not appear on the cemetery list, we are pleased to receive that information from you."

Please keep in mind that some of the cemetery listings that are being placed on the WWW were done more than 30 or 40 years ago.
Every cemetery that you view through your genealogical research should be considered a "Partial" listing for various reasons, such as errors in spelling occurring at the time of burial., some burial locations were known only to the cemetery sexton and information was lost when he moved, resigned or died. And many written logs were destroyed by accidental fires.
We are not responsible for errors, misspellings or incorrect information. Every attempt to correct misinformation is entered onto our listing(s) upon being notified of a burial with source and/or family history.

1. Readings done by the D.A.R. Ind. Miriam Benedict Chapter of LaPorte County, Indiana.
2. Older LaPorte County Pioneer Cemetery Readings
3. Current readings
4. Individuals who have donated obituaries, family histories and burial locations.
5. Obituary
6. Church records
7. Cemetery burial records; handwritten, typed or computerized  

NOTICE -  Sorry, we are no longer taking links to private family and personal pages that are off site. We are continuing to place family histories on this site, but there has been a reoccurring problem when connecting to private family pages. For what ever reason, researchers discontinue their sites and that leaves us with a whole bunch of broken links and us having to make adjustments to this site. It is very time consuming when updating the pages to remove the surnames that go to "broken links"
