Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the 600 pages of Tioga County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Tioga button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? If you use that partition follow these steps to search just one cemetery
1. Choose Cemeteries - Tioga. 
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Newbury or Furman] AND a surname.
3. Choose the Find ALL Words option. Then it will find just the pages with that surname in the one cemetery you indicated.

This cemetery is in many levels, with steps, going down to next level, in same places. Otherwise one slides down to next level. There was two stones, near a back road, I could not get to, from the upper level. I forget to try the back road though it was grown up in weeds and briers. Also- I did not do a few new ones in a new section, on the left, going in. Night was falling and I had two days there.

I went to the Nelson Cemetery site today.  There in column three are the four people listed as Nichols.  They are really Oakden.
My grandmother May Oakden Raymond died 1950.
My grandfather Delos Raymond died 1941.
My aunt Blanche Raymond died 1971.
My uncle Earle Raymond died 1972.
My mother Georgeanna Raymond Niles died 1993.
I know they are all buried in Nelson.  Not all of them are listed on your site.  Some of your photos even show their grave stones.  The web site should be kept up to date.

Comment from Joyce - Apparently Ms. Niles believes that we operate with unlimited funding and unlimited volunteer resources. I do not believe that she is among our volunteers.
