Boone County Genealogical Society Indiana

Cemetery Restoration Committee

Spring time is quickly approaching.  This year the Cemetery Restoration Committee will be working on Poplar Grove Cemetery.  The committee is THRILLED to announce that the Boone County Genealogical Society is the recipient of a $1000 grant from the Indiana Genealogical Society to make repairs on the cemetery this year.  THANK YOU IGS!!!  Join the fun!  Contact Suzzie Strainer or Brenda Barker and we will keep you abreast of when we will be working at the cemetery.  All workers are more than welcome - you don't even have to be a Society member to help.  If you can't help at the cemetery we also have work to do at the library researching the people buried there.


Mount Union Cemetery

On May 26, 2018 BCGS members met at Mount Union Cemetery to dedicate a sign designating the cemetery as a DNR recognized pioneer cemetery.  Over the last 15 months numerous hours have been spent removing fencing, clearing brush, as well as cleaning and repairing gravestones.  We would like to thank all of the people who helped with this GREAT accomplishment.
