Do You Know that you can search just the search just the 860 pages of Chemung County Cemetery Records on 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.

Located on West Hill Road A, Town of Big Flats, Chemung Co., NY, on the Mills Farm. The following is a compilation of a reading made by Mrs. Hugh Staver in 1931/32 and a later list (date not known). The last list was given by Robert Boardman, whose mother was Mrs. Harold Boardman, a sister of Harry Mills. Mrs. Hilda Rhodes gave this list to me (Isabel Ridall) in 1979. It is not know what data was on the stones or what added for interest or clarity.  (Note to Joyce:  Mrs. Harold Boardman was Mary E.  Mills, Dau.of Frank H and Hattie B Evertts Mills.  Mary is buried in Forest Lawn Mem. Pk . on E. Hill.  Other Info. available at Woodlawn, Mills – Thanks for all your work on these as well as others. I often obtain information from your site.  It has proven very accurate. Just a note; It is my Mills family that owned the W. Hill cemetery and I have the original list, farm map and Genealogy information at my Email or home address. Duane “Skip” Mills - 168 Monkey Run Road Elmira, NY 14901)
Apologies. Most of the women who authored this listing were identified by their husbands' names and not their own. If you can tell us their own names we'd like to show respect by recording them here. Their efforts provided us this information and they deserve recognition in their own name.
