Finding Cemetery Records

The majority of us will end up in the same place, a cemetery. Our final resting place where family and friends can come visit us. But, for the family researcher cemetery records are not a dead end. Locating where an individual is buried can lead to additional records. These records may include:

  • death certificates
  • obituaries
  • military records
  • funeral home records
  • information concerning other family members.

Cemetery records can be found in various places, but the most common are:

  • Online Records
  • Published Records
  • Visit the Cemetery
Online Records:

With the explosion of family history research, there are a number of internet sites which can help you find the cemetery where your ancestors are buried. These online sources will usually have information from the actual gravestone but may also have photographs of the stones. Helpful sites are:

Published Records:

These records can be found in book form or on the Internet. To locate cemetery books visit the library in the county or town where your ancestor died. A good source to locate published cemetery records is the Family History Library Catalog and WorldCat.

Visit or Contact the Cemetery:

Many times records have not been published in book form or on the Internet. If this is the case a trip or phone call to the cemetery will be necessary. Visiting the cemetery is always better than a phone call. Honoring your loved ones by visiting their final place of rest helps to establish that family connection. Also, it gives you a chance to explore who is buried near to them. Are there other family members buried near by? Maybe a young child who could not be found on other records. locating contact information for a cemetery may be difficult but the following should assist in your search.
