Bio and Links
Wayne County Cemetery Preservation Society is a genealogical organization that is working for anyone who has ancestors from Wayne County. As our name suggests, one of our main goals is to preserve all the graves and cemeteries of the county, but the reason for our formation and being encompasses much more than "saving cemeteries."

We have made it our goal to accomplish the following tasks:

To pinpoint and to record the exact location of every cemetery inside the borders of Wayne County and to make that information available to the public. 

To collect and record to the best of our ability the most accurate information that can be obtained from the inscription on every tombstone in the county that is in danger of weathering away or being destroyed.
To photograph and archive pictures of all the cemeteries and threatened tombstones in the county, so that a historic record of our ancestors' headstones will be retained for future generations.

To compile basic genealogical and historic data relating to the persons who are buried in our early cemeteries and of the early churches associated with them.

Finally, to bring to the attention of the appropriate authorities any persons who would cause or aid in the destruction of any of our historic markers or cemeteries.
