I enjoyed reading "Cleveland Cemeteries" very much even though I am not from the Cleveland area. I have visited several of the sites with 'book in hand' and found the book easy to followed and accurate in detail. Anyone interested in the settlement of the Western Reserve would find this book appealing. Not only does the book contain facts and figures it focuses on points of special interest and mentions the famous and not so famous.
A novice genealogist will find the Ohio Resource list invaluable. Any future visits to a cemetery will have new meaning for me after reading "Cleveland Cemeteries". It has given me a curiosity for local cemeteries.

A well-written and readable book, "Cleveland Cemetaries" provides a thoroughly researched chronicle of many cemetaries across the city and biographical tidbits on some of the notable individuals located at each. I learned a great many things from the book, not only about these particular locations and individuals, but also about lifestyles during different periods in the history of the city. It was an interesting book and I plan to use it for future genealogical research and expeditions into the past.

I found the lack of interesting photographs and monotonous prose to take away from the lore and fascination of Cleveland cemeteries. There is a wealth of information that is not presented. Trivial facts about those residents whom the author finds interesting, may fail to interest others. I wasn't interested in a written, walking tour. The point of walking tours is to discover for yourself what you find interesting.

Great book, lots of information about cemeteries, mostly not known to most of us in the Cleveland area. Some small cemeteries I pass and didn't know it
