Genealogy Request

Genealogy Request Form

Thanks for taking the time to fill out our Genealogy Request Form. We will attempt to answer all questions, such as birth and death information, location of deceased in a cemetery, and any other miscellaneous information you provide in your request..

Due to periods of incomplete data (information not provided to the cemetery by family members during previous decades), not all data desired is available. Therefore, results may reveal all of the information sought, some of it, or in some instances, no information at all.

NOTE: As a general rule, we cannot provide the names of parents, children, or other relatives because family relationships have not been recorded in our records. If a person is buried in a family lot, we can tell you who is buried on the lot with them.

All searches are made of River View Cemetery records only and do not include such sources as obituaries or death certificates. All genealogy requests are answered by e-mail and/or U.S. mail. They are completed in the order in which they are received and will be mailed to you within four-to-six weeks (if our search turns up empty-handed, we will notify you of this via email.)

Please complete (as much as possible) the information on the form below and select 'Submit Request' at the end to send the request to us.

Unlike some cemeteries who charge for this service, River View continues to provide genealogy information at no charge. However, we do encourage donations to cover the cost of our staff member’s time, photocopying, postage, etc.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact River View Cemetery at: (503) 246-4251.
