To find monumental inscriptions, you need to know where an individual was buried. The person may have been buried in a church, city, or public cemetery— usually near the place where he lived or died. You can find clues to burial places in church records, death certificates, or family histories.
Ministers may have the burial registers or the records of the burial plots for the cemetery you wish to search.
Another way to gain access to tombstone inscriptions is through the Internet. Many people on the Internet volunteer to search various types of records for certain areas, free of charge.
The Family History Library has copies of some monumental inscriptions. These are listed in the Place Search of the FamilySearch Catalog under:
