GIS Mapping of Ashland Township Cemeteries

WMSRDC worked with Ashland Township in Newaygo County to map out the township’s three cemeteries. This process created digital maps with the ability to display the specific locations of plots on local aerial photos. The plots in each cemetery are now able to be searched by name or visually with records maintained by the township Clerk. The maps include the township’s interment records, photographs of headstones and monuments, and site availability. All of these records and plot location data can now be used by the cemetery and township officials to help the public search for family plots and graves. The maps and data are now available as a searchable online database by going to this link.
