I was born in Detroit and raised in one of the western 'burbs. My dad's family came to Detroit in the 1920's from Missouri and my mom's parents were married there in 1922, her father originally from East Tawas, Michigan and her mother from Minster, Ohio. So, I really don't have a huge history of burials in the Detroit area. One cemetery I keep going back to, however, is Mt Olivet on the east side of Detroit. My mother's mother is buried there, my mother's brother and sister-in-law are buried there, my DH's grandparents are buried there. And then a relative here and there. So, I was pleasantly surprised when one of the Wild Ones alerted me to the Mt. Elliott Cemetery Association's website. The site incorporates records from Mt Elliott Cemetery, Mt. Olivet cemetery, Resurrection Cemetery, All Saints Cemetery, Guardian Angel Cemetery and The Preserve.
Not only did I find the expected graves there, I found a great-aunt and great-uncle for DH. Great-uncle's death date was previously unknown. I found some additional records for relatives of my mother, too. Great site!
