== What is in This Collection? ==
The collection consists of images of cemetery records from the Tama County Recorder's office for the years 1913 to 2014.
Cemeteries began keeping records as soon as they opened. The purchase of a burial plot is a land transaction and is recorded with a deed. Cemetery records are kept as a permanent record of who was buried and usually who purchased the burial plot. The information in these records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
