Put-in-Bay Twp. Digitizes Cemetery Plot Locations
After 3 years of countless hours of research and digitizing, Put-in-Bay Twp. is proud to unveil online searchable cemetery maps to the residents of Put-in-Bay, Middle Bass and North Bass. This process has moved all cemetery documents into the cloud and preserves island history in a safe and backed up environment. This has been a daunting task of combing through very old documents and maps to come up with accurate records. Although still a work in progress, it’s very impressive and interesting to see. Thank you to everyone who has worked to make this happen. Go to https://www.pibtownship.com/cemeteries and check it out.

Please Help Us!
Marsha Baumert from the Resale Shop at the Museum would like to remind all those who want to donate their items to the shop can really help the operation by only dropping them off during open hours. Please do not drop donations off before we open or after we close. It makes for a lot of extra work for the staff. Remember, donates items must be clean and in full working order with all of its parts. The shop has no way of cleaning dirty items because there is no water there. Marsha says the museum appreciates your donations, but please honor our standing requests.
