Let These Stones Speak

We are helping to get the Southern Lancaster County Cemeteries started in “Let these Stones Speak” Lancaster County's Tombstone photo CD series: by Darvin Martin

Each issue includes photos of all the stones still existing in each cemetery for a particular township.Everyname index makes finding anyone of a certain surname easy. Transcription lists are included for former sites when they are available. The cemeteries are checked to older transcription lists and inscriptions for missing stones are included. The first CD for the area Southern Lancaster County Historical Society covers is Providence Township.

This CD is now available at the Archives.
