Genealogists and burial plot shoppers now can examine online interactive maps of Platteville’s two public cemeteries following the completion of a city project, according to a press release.

Two University of Wisconsin-Platteville students assembled archival information into a database, including gravestone photographs, names, birth and death years and veteran status — information previously unavailable from existing paper records.

To view the Hillside Cemetery map, visit www.bit.ly/Cemeteryhillside. To view the Greenwood Cemetery map, visit www.bit.ly/Cemeterygreenwood.

The city anticipates the new websites will generate a long-term cost savings by reducing the time that staff spends collecting such information.

For more information about available spaces, call 608-348-1822.
