My experience is that the cemetery burial listings prepared for the government in connection with the Tocks project were not necessarily well done. The burials list for Delaware Cemetery at Dingman's is missing burials contained in the records of that cemetery. This suggested to me that the government's list may have been prepared by walking the cemetery and noting the headstone information. Even at that, however, the job was not well done as one of the burials I know they missed had a prominent headstone. Therefore, although making the lists available on-line is laudable, there should probably be an accompanying statement to the effect that the listings may not be complete. Jim
