Cupar Cemetery Mapping

Thank you to Linda Nameth for her many hours, actually more like months in her efforts to map and identify names and dates of people in the Cupar Cemetery. She intents to update this map and book once a year as our cemetery continues to have active burials. Thanks to her walkers, Linda and Jim Adam, and Lucille Ermel, who wandered the cemetery trying to identify and record headstones. Our town staff should also be thanked for supplies and computer access.
You can find the cemetery map on the Town of Cupar website.
A kiosk with map and book listing names location in cemetery and birth-death dates, when possible whether cremated or in casket and next of kin is located in the cemetery.
I have spent hours wandering through the cemetery looking for early settlers, finding their headstones and then losing track of where they were the next time I went out. So we now have a vital tool for family members and researchers.
