PICTURES! and CEMETERIES!
- Created PHOTO ALBUM today of old Waldoboro pictures I've collected.
Check it out, (it's free to view!)
Feel free to add to the album....
Also, am wrapping up my research on ALL Waldoboro cemeteries for
forthcoming new book, "Waldoboro Cemeteries", perhaps to be published
in one year from now.
Last call for anyone who may have information not known to the
general public on who may be buried in many of these smaller, secret,
almost unknown cemeteries.
Most of our first generation immigrant ancestors' burial places
are unaccounted for. Lots of the second generation are also missing.
I have many cemeteries that contain only fieldstones, no names, and
deed research only worsens the "scientific process of elimination" as
to who may be buried within! (Examples; The Mink cemetery in South
Waldoboro, the very old cemetery on the Weaver property, the small
old Bornheimer farm cemetery which contains the graves of two or
three American Revolution and Civil War veterans, etc.)
My extensive database is based on stone by stone recording and
compared to 1930's, 40's, and 50's M.O.C.A. recordings. Old town
records, vital records, and multiple histories consulted. Deed
research at the Lincoln County courthouse has also been very
informative and beneficial as to when some of these cemeteries were
established, by whom, and whose property was set aside for these
