Cemeteries
NOT ALL CEMETERIES HAVE BEEN TRANSCRIBED!
The ONLY information available at this time is what is on the pages that can be accessed by the clickable links. If anyone has burial transcriptions or tomb stone photos that they would share, we would be most appreciative if you would let us post them on this site with full credit given to you.
You retain the rights to your submissions.

Some cemeteries have not been updated for quite some time (except for recent submissions). It has come to our attention that there are some errors, so as with all genealogical information, document your own sources and use these transcriptions as guidelines only. If you find errors, please let us know so we can correct the information. (Tombstones have been known to have incorrect information also) We do not intentionally include incorrect information. We are only human and this information was transcribed by humans. If anyone is willing to rewalk a cemetery and submit current information, it would be most appreciated.
