Cemetery Transcriptions Page
For several years now the Greene County Genealogical Society members and other interested persons have visited numerous Greene County cemeteries to read tombstones.†The last comprehensive undertaking occurred in the mid-1960ís, and even then some cemeteries were omitted. Therefore, the Society thought an update after forty plus years would be of vast importance to many persons with Greene County roots.†

The Cox Library is unable to respond to requests for genealogical or historical research, but is pleased to honor specific, targeted requests for public records and other well-indexed information. (At this time, we know of no one to recommend as a resource for local research. If this changes, we will post an announcement on the library’s web site.)
Specific look-ups can be done for items such as census records, marriage records, wills, settlements, inventories, court minutes, deeds, death certificates, obituaries, tombstone records, birth records, brief excerpts from articles or books, and any other sources for which finding aids exist.
