Bohemian National Cemetery Photo by Connie Street

Welcome to the Bohemian National Cemetery Page. This document summarizing data for 157 graves was created by merging the information found in the Works Project Administration (WPA) 1930ís Graves Registration Survey (46 records), the ongoing Iowa Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) (135 records), and the ongoing the IAGENWEB Obituaries (Obits) (0 records). The left column of the tabulation indicates the source of the summary data WPA (W), GPP (P) and Obits (O). Note that some records have more than one source; this is because in many cases the information is redundant. If there is a disagreement, your county coordinator has used his best judgment about which information to include in the compilation. Please note the four icons below the cemetery tables. These icons can be used to access various web based sources of Bohemian National Cemetery information. This summary contains a wealth of information that was made available by volunteers taking pictures and transcribing data. Those volunteers are to be applauded, keep up the good work!

Connie Street is the past Winneshiek County IAGenWeb coordinator. While Connie was coordinator she uploaded over 650 pictures to the GPP project database. Thank you Connie, and the many others who have taken the time to share their cemetery pictures with us, now we can all take a virtual cemetery tour via the internet. Connie's pictures included one for the Bohemian National Cemetery entrance. This is what Connie wrote about the Bohemian National Cemetery. Bohemian National Cemetery "Cesko Narodni Hrbitov" was created in 1897. The people buried here originally came from Bohemia and Moravia and were "freethinkers."

The land for this cemetery was donated in 1897 by Joseph Vopova. The people buried here came mostly from Bohemia and Moravia and were Freethinkers. There is a statue of Johann Hus, honoring the  Bohemian religious reformer who was executed in 1415. Some of the gravesites are covered with beautiful mosaic blankets made with tiny colored stones (see photo at left).
