The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Collection contains tombstone inscriptions from some Oklahoma cemeteries. This collection is described in the “Genealogy” section of this outline. Another important collection is Cemetery Records of Oklahoma, 9 vols. Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society, 1959-62. (FHL book 976.6 V3i; films 824,250-52.)

The following book lists many cemeteries by county, and mentions where the records are published:

Pierce, Barbara and Brian Basore. Oklahoma Cemeteries: A Bibliography of the Collections in the Oklahoma Historical Society. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma: Oklahoma Historical Society, 1993. (FHL book 976.6 V3p.)

If you are searching for the burials of white and Indian ancestors in any of the 17 northeastern counties, use James W. Tyner and Alice Tyner Timmons, Our People and Where They Rest. 12 vols. Norman, Oklahoma: University of Oklahoma, 1969-78. (FHL book 976.6 V3t; vols. 1-6 on film 1,290,833 items 5-10; vols. 7-10 on film 1,290,834 items 1-4; vols. 11-12 on film 1,888,927 items 5-6.) The Family History Library has a master index to these volumes by Jerri G. Chasteen (FHL book 976.6 V3t Index).

Inscriptions from graves relocated as a result of the Arkansas River Navigational System are recorded by Madeline S. Mills and Helen R. Mullenax, Relocated Cemeteries in Oklahoma and Parts of Arkansas, Kansas, Texas. Tulsa, Oklahoma: Mills and Mullenax, 1974. (FHL book 976.6 V3mm; film 928,142 item 5.)
