Information to add to this article
To help authors revise articles, we've posted a page that lists headings the wiki community vetted and finds useful. These headings serve as helpful prompts to remind an author of the kinds of information a patron might want to know about a record. The list of headings appears in FamilySearch Wiki:Headings for Articles about Records.

The old research outline contained the following detail about cemetery records:
The Genealogical Council of Maryland is preparing a directory of cemeteries for four Maryland counties. The directory will give the name of the cemetery, its address or location, the name of a contact person, the dates of the earliest and most recent burial, the present condition of the cemetery, whether the tombstones have been transcribed, and where the transcripts can be found.
As of 17 Feb 2009, this directory cannot be located. Further research is needed to determine if the publication is finished and where it is available for use. --Fran 18:22, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
Need to review and revise the following content from the old research outline:
The county-by-county list of the cemetery record transcripts available at the Family History Library is:
- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Index to United States Cemeteries. Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1988. (Family History Library films 1206468-94.) Film 1206475 includes Maryland among other states.
The Maryland Historical Society has many cemetery records. They are often filed with records of the church they were associated with. Many tombstone inscriptions have also been published in periodicals.
