of 54 volunteers have completed work on 66 of the 87 counties in
Minnesota. This is a 76% completion rate. [The list of 21 counties
still needing more work is shown below. If you can help, let us know!]
Our data on cemetery locations is being added to the MGS website [www.mngs.org]
as quickly as possible. Watch for additions! Notice that we have tried
to collect information on Twp/Range/Section, longitude/latitude,
driving directions, sexton info, etc.
Send corrections to the project coordinator! Also watch for publication of the Bibliography of Minnesota Burial Transcriptions: A Finding Aid, which is pending.
Special recognition goes to Marcia Paulson [who did the work on 9 counties], and to Cecelia McKeig [who completed 8 counties], and also to Gay McClellan, who did the checking of the final Excel files for all counties. A HUGE "Thank You" to all who helped! This is a labor of love, and would not be possible without the contributions of many.
Counties that Still Need Work:
Benton, Carlton, Chippewa, Dakota, Douglas, Faribault, Goodhue, Mille Lacs, Nicollet, Norman, Redwood, Renville, Roseau, Sherburne, St. Louis, Stearns, Stevens, Wabasha, and Winona Counties. If you can share information, it will be appreciated! A great deal of information exists on these counties, but it is still incomplete. Can you help us complete the master list of cemetery locations?
