Characteristics and Description

  • This project contains a series of index cards created with the information on headstones and church registers.
  • Each card generally includes the name of the cemetery, the name of the individual, the date of death, and the age at death. They often include other details, such as parents' names, spouse's names, birth details, burial date, or other details found on the headstones.
  • Most images contain only one card, though some may have up to four cards.

Records Access

  • The general public can freely access the completed index and links to digital images online once the collection is published.
