OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ An Oklahoma County homemakers club is compiling in book form a list of county cemetery locations.

The Oklahoma County chapter of the Home and Community Education Group is working with similar groups across the state to produce a book for each of the state's 77 counties.

The books will include information including photos, maps, short historical stories and lists of local funeral homes.

The group took on the project after a suggestion from the Oklahoma Historical Society. The group hopes the books will assist people in researching family trees.

The books should be finished this summer.
