In about 2000, this website was offered by Lori Manning for the home of
my project and since
that time and to date my cemetery records and photographs have been
added. Along with links
to map data offered by Dennis Cook and Lori Manning's Township pages.
This project is never ending and electronic updates are made available
to the Richland County
History Room and this website, on a ongoing bases.
What THOMPSON's Cemeteries are and are not.
This project is NOT cemetery records only! Pure cemetery researchers
show not be lead to
believe that all the data is available at the burial site.
The data comes from cemetery data, Register of Deeds records (mainly
Obituaries (mainly the local paper), Richland County History Room (many
sources), local history
books (mainly the 1884, 1906 and 1986 Histories of Richland Co.) and
Also from websites such as SS Death Index, Find-A-Grave,
USGEN Wisconsin Tombstone
Transcripton and Photograph projects and others. And of course feedback
from people like you
that find errors and provide additional information.
Most of the additional data, from outside the cemetery source is maiden
names, marriages and
dates of marriages, parents and full birth and death dates.
