As some of you already know, we discovered some time ago that our Lansingville Cemetery records were in error, that we had Lake Ridge Cemetery burials listed on the Lansingville records. Since then, several people have been working tirelessly, using Association Records, burial maps provided by the Association, older records by Dora Pope Worden and Isabelle Parish and lots of walking the cemetery, to put together a new record. We put Part 1 up back in June, and now we are very happy to announce that Part 2 (of 3) is now online, and it includes lots of photographs of headstones. A big thanks goes out to the following for all their hard work and research in putting this new record together: Cheryl Hall, Nina McAndrews, Janet Nash, and especially the Lansingville Cemetery Association, Darlene Jackson and Cheryl Salsman. Thanks to everyone!

By the way, we will keep the older record up on the site until we have finished with all three parts of the new one.
