Thank you for taking the time to fill out our Genealogy Research Form.  We will attempt to answer all questions, such as birth and death dates, location of the deceased in the cemetery, and other miscellaneous information if possible. 

All genealogy requests are answered by email and/or U.S. Mail.  They are completed in the order they are received and we will respond to you within four to six weeks.  If our search is unsuccessful you will be notified by email. 

There is a non-refundable fee of $15.00 for the first name and $5.00 for each additional name requested for research up to 5 names.  Please download and submit the completed form along with your payment.  Please make your check payable to CPCA.

If we are unable to locate your primary research request the initial fee of $15.00 is non-refundable but the $5.00 paid for each additional name will be refunded if paid at the time of the initial request. 

Cemetery records contain information regarding burial only.  Normally the information includes the following:  date of death, place of death, date of burial, date of birth or age, place of birth, parish from which the person was buried and the funeral director.

Cemetery records do not include:  maiden names, names and addresses of relatives or children and death certificates.

Catholic Parish Cemeteries Association does not represent or warrant genealogical information as accurate though we believe this information to be accurate when received.  The information is a reflection of the records on file at the cemetery office which has been provided by third party sources, i.e., family, relatives, funeral directors, etc.
