Using to Find Your Ancestors

Are you trying to find where your ancestor was buried?  Do you know where your ancestor died and you are pretty sure he/she was buried near that town/city?  Well...I have one option to try and find your ancestor.

Try going to to look at some cemeteries by county.  Since this website goes off of volunteers, not every cemetery is listed.  Infact, not every county has a cemetery that has been transcribed.  But, it is still worth a shot because you might find a possible match.

If you are lucky enough to get a possible match then you can ask a volunteer to go over to the cemetery and take some pictures of the tombstone for you.
