Chartiers cemetery I not at all helpful with research requests, actually the
"lady" in charge of the office (I believe her name is Ruth) has said that she
is "not paid to do research".
I have asked one of the owners (in person) to allow the Historical Society of
Carnegie access to the cemetery records, which he said that should not be a
problem. But his "manager" at the cemetery said that "for customer privacy
he can't allow it"
I think a letter writing campaign to Cornerstone FAMILY Services is in order!
Or if anyone has any other suggestions about what WE can do.
Does anyone know if the cemetery records would be concidered PUBLIC RECORDS?

I must say that I am sorry to all researchers trying to get records from
Chartiers cemetery, I, and a few others started a battle with Chartiers over
the care of graves and destruction of old grave makers in a "Babyland"
section of the cemetery, and the garbage dump in the back. I have records
that I need from them also, but I have over 275 family members buried in
Chartiers that need the respect they deserve, and were not getting. So I AM
SORRY, but I had to try and do something for all our famlies.
