Medina County Chapter of OGS Research Policy

If you are not a member, but are interested in having our chapter do research for you, please see our research policy listed HERE.



Tombstone Inscriptions of Spencer Cemetery

Francis Stuart has submitted this huge and very comprehensive database for us. Right now, it's being indexed, but for the moment, you can view the pdf file of it. In the near future, it will be broken down into several pages, much easier to load. This file will take some time to download, and is very large, so please be patient and allow time for it to load. To view the file, click HERE.
