There is no major statewide collection or index of cemetery transcripts available at present. The Northeastern Nevada Genealogical Society, P.O. Box 1903, Elko, Nevada 89801, is currently compiling cemetery records and will do look-ups. The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) collection contains inscriptions from some Nevada cemeteries (see the “Genealogy” section of this outline). The Nevada Historical Society and several county libraries have collected mortuary records that date back to the 1870's.

A list of cemetery names and addresses in each county is in Joyce V. Hawley Spiros, Genealogical Guide to Arizona and Nevada (Gallup, New Mexico: Verlene Publishing, 1983; Family History Library book 979 D23s; fiche 6049613).

A statewide collection of Nevada cemetery records is presently being compiled by the Nevada Families Project. The first volume has been completed and published in Richard B. Taylor, comp., The Nevada Tombstone Record Book, Volume 1 (Las Vegas, Nevada: Nevada Families Project, 1986; Family History Library 979.3 V3n v.1; film 1421848 item 5). This contains cemetery lists from southern Nevada.
