Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the 860 pages of Chemung County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Chemung 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 - Chemung
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Comfort or Carr] 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 located in a cow pasture, on the north side of State Route 224, three miles northwest of Van Etten.  This listing is a compilation made July 10, 1960 (LDS microfilm) 1930-31 by Mrs. Hugh Staver (DAR records) and Joseph Boyd (Chemung County Historical Society files).  Bracketed material is not on the stones.
