  • Date of death
  • Name of Father
  • Name of Mother

  • Burial lot number

  • Name
  • Death date

Search the Collection

To search the collection:
⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒Select the "Record Description" which takes you to the images

Look at each image comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind:

  • There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
  • You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
  • Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.

Using the Information

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors. For example:

  • Use the birth date or year to search for birth records.
  • Use the birth date along with your relative’s names to find the family in census records.
  • Use the locality and relative's name to locate church and land records.

Tips to Keep in Mind

  • The name of the undertaker or mortuary could lead you to funeral and cemetery records, which often include the names and residences of other family members.
  • Compile the entries for every person with the same surname. This is especially helpful for rural areas or unusual surnames.
  • Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the deceased who may have been buried in the same cemetery or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.
  • When looking for a person with a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

Unable to Find Your Ancestor?

  • Check for variant spellings of the surnames.
  • Search the indexes and records of nearby cemeteries.
