I have been researching my genealogy since 1998. Areas are Pennsylvania and New York. Live in Holley so will take photos at Hillside Cemetery.
I have added many listings for people I am not related to and would be happy to transfer management to you - please contact me and be sure to include your member # and the # of the listing.
If you have a better photo - sometimes they get cleaned or repaired or the light might make yours more legible - please go ahead and post yours and let me know; I will delete mine, no problem.
Due to weather conditions in Western New York, many stones have lichen and moss; I will only clean off enough to uncover information. I will not take the risk on harming fragile stones by trying to clean them.
Concordia Cemetery records were translated from the old German script so there may be errors. Also the records recorded the burial date and in the late 1800's some recorded the date the plot was sold and who bought it, not who is interred (but did not indicate which they were recording), so if you show a different death date or other information please enter an edit and I will correct it. Please send edits on the edit page but please note that census and necro list (from city directories) info contains many errors, so if a source is not certifiable, don't trust that it is correct. I have listed the interment dates so you can find death notices in newspapers easier. For those interred in 1901, some were re-interred from the North Street Cemetery when that was closed, so I have left off the death dates if I am not able to verify they did die in 1901. I found records stating 122 people and 35 tombstones were moved from North Street to Concordia. I also see many interments in 1905 where the stones list an earlier date; am not sure why but please be aware some interment dates might not be correct. All I can offer is what the records state.
