An Amazing Resource
In June 2011, JCGC announced the addition of a genealogy feature to its website. This feature is easy to use and quickly has become the most popular area of our website, which can be found at www.jcemcin.org.
By clicking on the Genealogy tab on our home page, you land on a page that provides a tutorial video for those who haven’t previously visited the page. You can click on the video to view the tutorial. On the bottom of the same page, you can look up individuals who are buried in our cemeteries by submitting their names.
The information available in our data base includes, in most cases, a photo of the memorial, the cemetery and lot location, birth and death dates, and any family information that we have on file.
One of the really exciting parts of our genealogy page is that the user is able to provide corrections or furnish missing data to our data base. These updates containing the user’s comments come to the JCGC office via an email generated by the web page, allowing JCGC to make the corrections/additions.
Online genealogy searches and corrections/updates are a free service to the community. Users are able to donate if they wish by clicking on the Donate button found on the Genealogy page.
