Cemetery History

Founded by the Sokol Lodge, organized in 1904 to promote athletic skills and patriotism among its members. Czech for "falcon," Sokol has been in the United States since 1865 and attracts Americans of Czech, Slovakian, and Moravian descent. More than one Sokol Lodge formed in Roslyn; it is unclear which one founded the cemetery.

Notes

Cemetery is in very good condition and well cared for.  The oldest marked grave was from 1905 and the other from 1918.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
