Oregon Cemetery Survey

I am transcribing this information directly from an out-of-print book entitled "Oregon Cemetery Survey",
which was published in 1978 by the Oregon Department of Transportation.
This book is a list of cemeteries located in Oregon...
it only infrequently includes individual burial information.

As stated on the opening page of this wonderful book...
"The survey is a public record and is not copyrighted and may be freely copied or duplicated in any way."
So...feel free to share this information by linking to my webpages.
Please do not reprint my actual webpages without my written permission, however.
Thank you for respecting the many hours of labor I put into creating these pages.

Please keep in mind that, having been published in 1978,
some of this information is doubtlessly out-of-date.
I do not typically have additional info concerning these cemeteries,
nor can I provide look-ups in this book.

That said....I hope this info will prove helpful to fellow researchers!!

The following codes are used throughout the survey,
indicating the approximate size and condition of each cemetery in 1978.
