Who Will Tell Your Story? St. Patrick’s Cemetery will be the topic of a presentation sponsored by the Niagara County Genealogical Society and feature author Shelley Richards, on Wednesday March 22 at 7 PM at the All Saints Parish Hall, 76 Church St. The public is invited! Ms. Richards will highlight some of the history of the cemetery, share new historical findings and interesting facts, and tell delightful stories of “residents” of the cemetery from her Volume I book (available to purchase). Come hear about new biographies being planned for Volume II. Old Cemetery maps and a map of the new section – Section C - currently being readied for interments, will be on display. Ms. Richards is still looking for family members to submit biographies for publication in Volume II. For more information you can reach Ms. Richards at genealogy@allsaintslockport.org.
