Reproduced on this roll of microfilm are records that were created by the Oberlin Cemetery Association. This organization operated Westwood Cemetery until 1944 when the City of Oberlin assumed responsibility. Although the City instituted new record keeping proceedures it continued to record in thevolumes that indicate lot locations. Thus entries are as recent as 1972 when this microfilm was made.
