Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
||Do You Know that you can search just the
Bradford County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries
-Bradford 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 - Bradford.
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Ballard or Berrytown] 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.

This will teach me to check the website before I
go hiking off into hay fields to check cemeteries!!!!!!
Tonight I hiked up to the hill near my house
where the Pierce/Satterlee cemetery is to check it. I bet this cemetery
used to be beautiful. It has a wrought iron fence all around it, and it is absolutely full of woodchuck
holes and rose bushes (WITH thorns). Also has branches down in it,
one monument is on its face and unreadable now. Also unmoveable.
Then I get home and check Joyce's site, and find it is already there.......Oh
a nice night for a hike.
