Cemetery Website Updated with St. Patrick's Burial Records

Saturday, January 19, 2019 - Posted 2:13:57 PM

The Minonk Cemetery website format has been updated to reflect a more modern web format. Along with the new format, the website has been updated to include burial records for the St. Patrick's cemetery.

The St. Patrick's burial records will contain the same type of information and be in the same format as for the Minonk Township Cemetery. Most of the records were obtained from the St. Patrick Church files. In addition, many of the records were updated from data gathered from old Minonk News-Dispatch obituaries.

Obituaries from 1912 through 1962 have been added to the St. Patrick's burial records. Obituaries have also been added from 2001 through the present. We will continue to add obituaries and keep the records up to date. Also, viewers can also submit obituaries, photos and articles for a burial record on the website.

The cemetery website has a word search feature that allows burial records to be selected based on a word. This can include searches on city, state, country, year, names and dates. Location of a burial site can also be shown on a map to help locate a burial. Some of the burial site locations for St. Patrick's cemetery are missing but efforts are being made to update the burial records with an accurate location.

A link has been added for the St. Patrick's burial records under the Reference menu item at the top right of the MinonkTalk web page. To view the web site, click on this link.
