Genealogical Research


We can provide information regarding family members buried or entombed at Holy Cross Cemetery.

Our records only contain information regarding the burial.  This most often includes the age or date of birth, date of death, date of burial and sometimes the mortuary or parish where the funeral was conducted. On occasion the headstone may list additional information.

Cemetery records do not contain the cause of death or other vital information from the death certificate. They do not contain maiden names, names of relatives or military  records. We do not have copies of death certificates.

Because there is time and expense involved in providing this information, we have a records research fee of $25.00.  This includes mailing or e-mailing the data, as well as a locator map and photograph of the grave, crypt or niche.  Some graves may not be marked by a gravestone, however we will still provide a map and photograph.  In the event no records are found, your check or money order will be returned.

To receive information regarding the burial of a relative, complete our  Information  request form and mail to:
