New Online Records for an Old Cemetery in Sunbury, Pennsylvania

It’s now easier to look for relatives who are buried at the Sunbury Cemetery. The cemetery’s records are being put online. There are burials dating back to the 1700s, including people who fought in the American Revolution. Two United States congressmen are also buried there.

The effort to transcribe the records into an online database is just beginning. Sunbury Mayor Kurt Karlovich is looking for people who are interested in cemeteries and history to help with the effort.

I think it’s great that a public servant would respond to the interests of the people. I hope the community responds to the mayor and step forward to help.

I’m glad to see these records are going online. I only hope the records that are in the Northumberland County Courthouse in Sunbury can be preserved before they are lost. This has been an ongoing effort by many people for several years now… but it is going nowhere. The records there also go back to the early 1700s. There is little interest by the county officials to have them preserved.
