Genealogy

What is genealogy?

Genealogy is the study of the descents of families and persons from an ancestor or ancestors. This study is undertaken by many people out of interest in their personal and family origins. Cemeteries are one of many sources of information.

How can your cemetery help me find a family member?

Our cemetery has an office that maintain records of who is interred at the cemetery and who was moved from our cemetery to another. We will look up a name in our records for a small service fee. We will then mail you copies of the information that we find in our burial records.

Can you give me the names of my other relatives buried in the cemetery?

As a general rule, we cannot provide the names of parents, children, or other relatives because family relationships have not been recorded in our records.





"It was the darkest day in my life when my husband of 55 years passed away. I didn’t know what to do or where to go but I knew I wanted him buried at Fairhaven. I called them and they put me touch with our Family Service Counselor. She helped and guided us with love and compassion. She gave us several suggestions and took us to locations available for burial, and then waited for our selection.

Then she helped us with everything we needed to discuss from date and time of the service to flowers, minister, music and many other important choices. She made a difficult time easier for us, and we can’t thank her and the people of Fairhaven enough.

She has continued to be a great help to me and in so doing we have become good friends, therefore I continue to turn to her for help and advice. I love her for all she has done for me in the difficult time. "
