Press Release – Prominent Community Leaders, Veterans, Colorful Characters, and Loved Family Members of the Campbell County community has in many ways been buried in the past at Mount Pisgah Cemetery, and in the many small cemeteries in the area. Bringing this history to life with community participation, the Cemetery District has recently launched new interactive memorial pages on its website to capture the histories of the individuals resting in its grounds.
You can now visit www.cccdistrict.com to search the burial records of the cemetery. Each person has their own memorial page where visitors can share memories, stories, photos and videos that will automatically build an interactive timeline of their loved one’s life, showing from birth to death all of the major memories and events that tell their story.
This initiative involved the cemetery entering thousands of burial records from paper into the computer to make this history accessible. The cemetery believes that every life has a story to be told. “Now, we are asking local community members to contribute to this history project. “These electronic “scrapbook” pages have been established for every person buried or memorialized in our cemeteries. They are there for anyone — family, friends, co-workers and others. On this website, we are open 24 hours a day! “said Jim Hastings, Cemetery Board Chair. “Together, we can collect and preserve the history of our community. Every life story should be remembered.”
“As visitors search our records on our website, they share memories, stories and timeless photos on the memorial pages of their loved ones. Their submissions are reviewed and published so that these memories are saved and passed on to future generations,” said Darin Edmonds, Sexton. “These new memorial pages are enabling families to connect with our cemetery in new ways, and they are bringing our history to life. We hope that individual families and the community as a whole will benefit from this project, and can’t wait to see it grow.”
