If you haven't been here in a while, you might think you've landed someplace else! It was time for a change. This website had been maintained since its inception with Microsoft's Frontpage web editing software. Microsoft is dropping support for it this year. That forced us to look for something else.
We wanted to make this website more of a research portal. There are binders packed full of really interesting history of the cemetery and the City of Niles.
I found a Content Management System called Joomla. Besides having strong support for news articles, it's FREE! That means that more donations can go into the stone restoration efforts instead of buying software.
When setting up the new website, I tried to use as much of the themes from the old one. The grave search and photo gallery are the same. I have a stack of updates to the grave search database. There are thousands of new photos in the gallery.
Come back often! If you have any questions or suggestions, please write.
