    1. [WA-CEM] Snohomish & King County Cemeteries
    2. Hello Everyone, I have been working on my comprehensive lists of past and present cemeteries and their locations for Snohomish and King Counties. I would like to ask everyone's help in making these as complete and accurate as possible. Please take a close look and let me know if you think anything is missing or amiss. The Snohomish County list is completed and online at http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/wa/cemetery/snocem.htm The King County list is not online yet, but I will post it here in sections in separate messages. I would ask that everyone with knowledge of the cemeteries of the two counties please review the lists and give me their thoughts. Contact me at [email protected] Thank you, Kevin Fraley Director, Washington Cemetery Project, USGW http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/wa/wacem.htm
