Genealogy Research

We are happy to assist you with your search for ancestors who may be interred at the Sewickley Cemetery.  There are several different ways we can help.

If you are looking for information about one, two or three ancestors, please call or email the office.  We will research our records and in a reasonable amount of time, provide you with the shareable information we have.  If you live nearby, you are also welcome to stop by the office in person!  Either way, we are glad to assist you in your research, but please be aware that we may not be able to answer your request immediately.

Alternatively, you may be seeking information about four or more people within a family or estate Lot.  A “Lot” is a large plot of ground at the cemetery containing several graves and owned by one person, usually the head(s) of the family.  If you are searching for four or more ancestors, this is a bit more complicated and time consuming, and we will need to charge you a fee.

To request a search for four or more people, please send the list of ancestors you are looking for, plus your contact information, to the address below, with a check for $25 made out to Sewickley Cemetery. You may also email the cemetery office (office@sewickleycemetery.com) with the information and mail the check to us under separate cover.

Since this type of research takes time and must be done around our normal cemetery work, please allow 4-6 weeks for our response.

We can provide you with most or all of the following information:

  • Name of the deceased as listed on our records
  • Date and place of death
  • Age of deceased
  • Place of birth
  • Section and Lot Numbers
  • Funeral home name
  • Names of relatives interred in the same Lot
  • Map of the cemetery to help locate the Lot

Good luck with your search!
