Updated Cemetery Records

    The Lithuanian Freedom Cemetery was established about 1905-1906.  This was a non-religious (and, at its origin, very anti-Catholic) group of Lithuanians who wanted nothing to do with the Church.  Some of them to the U. S. that way leading to their being characterized as Bolsheviks.  Others had fights with priests and fellow Catholics which left them alienated.  Is is not necessarily so today in many cases. 
In 2007 the Lithuanian Cemetery is cared for by:

Rosedale Memorial Park
O-50 Lake Michigan Drive
Grand Rapids, MI  49534
Ph# (616) 453-2411
