Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the search just the 860 pages of Chemung County Cemetery Records on on the site by using the Cemeteries -Chemung button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? If you use that partition follow these steps to search just one cemetery
1. Choose Cemeteries - Chemung
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Comfort or Carr] AND a surname.
3. Choose the Find ALL Words option. Then it will find just the pages with that surname in the one cemetery you indicated. 

You will also want to search the three county level Obituaries by Cemetery partitions

Sing Sing Cemetery

Pioneer Cemetery

Big Flats Township, Chemung County, New York

Located on Kahler Road, off Route 17 This is the former Baptist Church Graveyard, where Rev. Goff located his first Baptist Church near Sing Sing Creek. Now the Baptist Church is located on Canal Street in Big Flats, NY. Copied by Susannah e. Whitcomb, 10 Tuxill Ave., Corning, NY, Steuben Co. All remaining stones were copied and the Cemetery looks like someone has restored it. This appeared in Rhoda Ladd's Tioga County Cemetery Inscriptions, Vol. 4. It was retyped by Mary PARIS Copp of Roseville PA. Reprinted with Rhoda's permission
Joyce M. Tice visited this cemetery on March 26, 1999 with Joan NASH O'Dell.  It is next to the Chemung County Airport.

A MORE COMPLETE LISTING THAN THIS WAS DONE BY DORIS & JOSEPH BOYD in 1976 and will be online soon - I hope.
