Work is in progress to update the 1976 Wright County Cemetery Records, by adding photographs of the gravestones in all Wright County Cemeteries.  It is a long process. We are lucky to have many citizens that are willing to help.   If you are interested, contact Jo Ann.  We can use your computer and photography skills.
