Cedar Grove Cemetery Inscriptions, South Bend-St. Joseph County, Indiana


The majority of names listed in this book are from tombstones that were “painstakingly recorded by laboriously walking through the cemetery ground. In conjunction with these is a chronological listing of names taken from a conglomeration of assorted material…” Entries are arranged alphabetically by surname and general include: the full name of the deceased, dates of birth and death, and occasionally other information such as place of death or military rank. “Realizing full well that the tombstones of Poles were inscribed in that beautiful, native language and that very few individuals can read or write same, all inscriptions have been translated except a few given names which are listed…” in a list of Polish Given Name Translations. A full-name index to buried names and a list of abbreviations add to the value of this work.
