Event Description

Volunteers are needed to walk and proof the gravestones in the Oak Shade Cemetery in Marion. Please join us as at 10:00 am as we verify information on existing stones and transcribe information from new stones.  After the information is gathered, lists are typed up and we go back out to “proof” the lists.  These lists are added to the cemetery collection in the Cedar Rapids Area Genealogy Library. Wear comfortable shoes, sunblock and a hat. Bring a sack lunch and drink.
