How to Use the Record

To search this collection, it would be helpful if you knew the following information:

  • Name of deceased
  • Approximate year and place of death
  • Cemetery

Search the Collection

Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.

To search the collection image by image, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page:
⇒Select the appropriate “Cemetery" which will take you to the images.

Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination.

Tips to Keep in Mind

When searching for the headstone of your ancestor, keep in mind that the images in this collection are organized by last name.

General Information about These Records

Cemetery records are especially helpful for identifying ancestors who were not otherwise recorded, such as children who died young or women who were not named in records. Relatives may be buried in adjoining plots. When possible, examine the original record rather than relying solely on alphabetized transcripts.
