Macomb County Funeral Home Records Master Index Update

Mount Clemens Public Library and the Macomb County Genealogy Group are pleased to announce an update to the Macomb County Funeral Homes Records Master Index. The latest update includes 18,122 new records, bringing the index total to 110,696 records.

New to the collection with this update are the records of the Otto Schemansky and Sons Monument Company of Detroit. This company produced grave markers for residents all over lower Michigan, and the order records for these monuments are being abstracted and indexed for our collection by volunteer genealogy assistant Dennis Zabel. This update also includes additional records for the Calcaterra, William R. Hamilton and LaCroix-Groesbeck funeral homes.

Our thanks go out to Karen Lee Hemme-Rogers and Brenda Miller, directors of the funeral home records project, who donate countless hours to the effort in abstracting and indexing records; to Dennis Zabel, who is abstracting and indexing the Schemansky records; and to Ann Faulkner, who maintains the master index files.
