How to record relatives’ addresses in the York General Burying Ground records

As we move into more recent records at the York General Burying Ground, the clerk occasionally notes a location (usually a street name) for some individuals in the “relationship” column.

Three occurrences of addresses—March Street, Front Street and Yorkville

Please record that location information in the “Nearest Relation: Address” field. If you followed my instructions for reorganizing the fields, the “Nearest Relation: Address” field will be hidden. You’ll need to retrieve it using the same “Organize Fields” tool under the File menu. Just highlight it and click on the arrow to bring it back to the active left side.

Don’t worry if you already bypassed some of these addresses, we’ll likely catch them in arbitration!
