These records may be useful to find ancestors if other vital records have not been found or may not exist anymore. These records may also help when the gravestones are illegible or have been destroyed. These burial records may be the only record of infant deaths. Gravestones may also have been engraved with the date of birth, date of marriage, military service, occupation, religion, place of residence at time of death, and place of origin. To find the burial record of an ancestor, you need to have at least the death date of the ancestor. A person can discover where an ancestor was buried by checking in the church death/burial records or the civil registry of the locality the ancestor lived.
