To get to Mount Hope Cemetery, start at the state capitol and go east on Michigan Ave. about 3/4 mile to Pennsylvania Ave. Turn right on Pennsylvania and go south about 1 and 1/2 miles to Mt. Hope Avenue. Turn left onto Mt. Hope Ave. and go about 1/2 mile to the Cemetery. The entrance will be on your right.

Mt. Hope Cemetery is a 80 acre lot maintained by the city of Lansing. It was opened in 1874, however some of the markers pre-date that year. Bodies from several "neighborhood" cemeteries were exhumed and re-interred here.

The cemetery is well maintained, however vandalism is a problem there, the last incedence occuring in the spring of 2003, when a hundred or more stones were damaged or toppled over.

Section J is large in area, but has few markers. Many of those that are present are for infants or cvhildren. A lot of the stones are small, and a good number of them are small, and in poor or unreadable condition.

This was a work in progress that began in Jul of 2003 and was completed in September of 2004.

    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.
