Last Updated: Tuesday, 20-Mar-2012 03:25:57 MDT

CHECK LIST BELOW FOR UP-DATED PAGE LIST

WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Can you add anything to the Sebastian Co pages?
We'd love to post anything you'd like to share. Please consider doing so.

Here is a list of LDS micro film available at your local LDS Family History Library on Sebastian County. If you would be interested in transcribing any of this information for the site it would be most appreciated. It is $6 a film to order them and you have them for about six weeks. Most film have more than one thing on them. Please let me know which one you are interested in doing so we can avoid any duplication of effort.....thank you so much.

Does anyone know where Mansfield's Child Cemetery was located?

Hendrix Hills Cemetery - Ft. Smith
Does anyone have more information on this abandoned and built over cemetery?

WE NEED WILLS & BIBLE RECORDS - do you have one to share?


Could you volunteer to transcribe some of the CENSUS for Sebastian County? If you don't have access to the film, maybe I can help out. It would be great to have all the census transcribed and if you can do just ONE township of one census year that would be a really good start!!! Jump in and have some fun and help hundreds of other researchers in Sebastian County!!!

Because of the number of names on this tree chart it is a little hard to follow but it shows the entwined relationship of over 1500 people who have been born, lived or died in this township over the years from the mid 1800's to the mid 1900's. This certainly is not a complete list of those who lived there.
