Re: Washington Park Cemetery-St.Louis
In Response To: Re: Washington Park Cemetery-St.Louis ()
Hi, I'm VFCooper and I am still doing research at Washington Park, though my current "day" job has hours that begin before the sun rises and end after sunset so I have not been in the park much in the last month. If you are in St. Louis and want to know where a loved one is buried, please go to either the St. Louis Genealogical Society or the Missouri Historical Society. There were many records that actually WERE kept...even before the first owner committed suicide so many years ago, before the airport bought large sections and removed the bodies to other cemeteries... The Genealogical Society is working to digitize the entire records collections (which fills MANY books) and will then put the entire collection online...as I understand it. Perhaps the current owner, Mr. Bailey, will organize a work session...Perhaps, if he does that, many of us will be able to help.
