Sao Paulo State and city both have large numbers of cemeteries given the significant population of both. Most have never been transcribed yet although some are listed at major cemetery transcription database sites such as Findagrave or has a page for Brazil and some subpages for some of the states. It is also possible some data exists on and also some on some Brazil-based genealogy sites, most of which may be written only in Portuguese.

Some have been identified and had pages posted at BillionGraves as well, each one has a Google map showing location, and once those who may use the BillionGraves site take photos of any headstones and upload them, others will transcribe them and the data will be available from those headstones.


The Museo Republicano, Itu has archived an inventory of wills, testaments,the equivalent of probate records, and criminal proceedings. A list is provided here.
