Tombstones and Cemeteries

Tombstones are a wonderful source of genealogical information. As spring kicks into full gear, cemetery expeditions are made by many family historians. Digital pictures are the way to go, in my opinion, but occasionally rubbings may be necessary. We've taken pictures, made rubbings, etc. during our many excursions to cemeteries. There are many sample pictures and articles about cemetery searching on our site--along with suggestions for getting information when you live a distance from a cemetery. Consider posting a question about the cemetery you are interested in to the appropriate county mailing list at Rootsweb or the message boards at Ancestry.com

Our articles on tombstones (and lots of pictures) can be linked to from here.
