Cemetery listing by County


Click on the County to view files and photos


Lets work together in this endeavor.
This project is about remembering our dead and preserving our history! 

To register a cemetery, send a message telling me the cemetery name, the county where the cemetery is located and the names of the people who will be doing the transcribing or taking photos. If you already have transcribed cemetery data or photos and would like for your work to become part of this project, just let me know.

Please note: Occasionally photos will be enhanced for readability. Most will be from columbariums where the lighting is poor and or the niches are very high and hard to photograph.
