"The Life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living." - Cicero

"Cemetery & Research Association of La Porte County disclaimer for cemetery readings:
"This website was developed and is sustained by volunteers who donate their time and personal resources for the purpose of providing valuable research information to fellow researchers. We are dedicated to providing free access to La Porte County cemetery listings. If you have documentation of a burial which does not appear on the cemetery list, we are pleased to receive that information from you."

Please keep in mind that some of the cemetery listings that are being placed on the WWW were done more than 30 or 40 years ago.
Every cemetery that you view through your genealogical research should be considered a "Partial" listing for various reasons, such as errors in spelling occurring at the time of burial., some burial locations were known only to the cemetery sexton and information was lost when he moved, resigned or died. And many written logs were destroyed by accidental fires.
We are not responsible for errors, misspellings or incorrect information. Every attempt to correct misinformation is entered onto our listing(s) upon being notified of a burial with source and/or family history.

Sources:
1. Readings done by the D.A.R. Ind. Miriam Benedict Chapter of LaPorte County, Indiana.
