Official City Records map now on the website

If you look to the left of the page, you will now see the Official City Records map listed under the downloadable maps. This is the map we use in the Historic Linwood Foundation Office to help people locate the graves in which they are interested. Unfortunately, it does not include the Old Cemetery. If you click on the VISIT LINWOOD tab in the banner, then scroll down to the bottom, you will see the BURIAL RECORDS. When you click on the first letter of the last name you are hunting, a list of Linwood Cemetery Interments will appear. You will first see the section of the cemetery in which the person is buried, then you will see the lot. Now, if you open the Official City Records Map, you will notice the sections which will either be a 1 or 2, or an A, B, C, D. Enlarge the map so that you see the numbers in the plots. Then just follow the roads to your ancestor! If your ancestor is listed in the Old Section, you will still need to come by the office so that we can help you.
NOTE: The Linwood burial record numbers work for this map only — not for the other map, which is called simply “Cemetery Map” on the Linwood webpage. However, once you locate your plot on the City map, you can try to find it on the other map. The other map has the outline of each plot and shows how many graves are in it. Both of these maps can be enlarged so that you can read the details.
We hope this helps as you try to find those long lost ancestors!
