USGenWeb Counties that are up for adoption and need Volunteer Coordinators!! Are you able to do a basic website? Why not take the time to coordinate a county. It really doesn't take that much of your time and it will help others and also help you in your research. The one advantage that these counties have as opposed to the larger websites is that they are FREE and many times they contain information that the larger websites don't have. Think about it become a member of the USGenWeb. You'll be glad you did!

If your ancestors came from Avondale in Hartwick Township, you may have hit the jackpot! This site traces many Hartwick Township families from 1870 to 1930. It includes all Hartwick Township census records from 1870-1930, photos of all the tombstones in Cherry Valley Cemetery and much more. It is indexed by surname.

Holy Cross Cemetery near Evart has been inactive for around 50 years. The only records that exist are a list of tombstones from an old newspaper. A group of people, headed by Roberta , are updating information and attempting to compile a complete listing of burials in the cemetery. If you know of someone who is buried there, please email Roberta. She will gladly share the information collected to date. Photos and family history for those buried there would also be appreciated.
