Hi - The cemetery records I mentioned are on microfilm (maybe 8-10-12 rolls?). I think that the originals may have been filmed by the LDS folks and may also be available at local Family History libraries. It's possible that they are also at the Waushara County Court House in Wautoma, but I can't remember. If memory serves, the Court House has the death records in large volumes, but don't know about the cemeteries.

Have you checked with other Waushara County sites (Rootsweb, etc.)? Some of them may have cemetery listings online.

One suggestion: find where your folks were last living, from county/township plat maps or land records, then look for the nearest cemeteries on large-scale county highway maps or USGS topographical maps. Also, the USGS site for Geographical Names Info (can't remember the exact title) will allow you to print out a list of all known cemeteries in any county. Also, try www.topozone.com for maps.

Good luck!
