Find-A-Grave - This site is very well done and the information and photos are all supplied by volunteers from around the world. Not all graves are listed here, only those a member volunteer has listed. You can find grave locations, cemetery locations and many grave photos. In some cases there are photos of the person as well as some relatives and obituaries.                                                           http://www.findagrave.com                                         

 

The USGenWeb Tombstone Transcription Project - This site lists many cemeteries with a list of all graves in the cemetery at the time the transcription was completed. This date should be found at the beginning of the transcription along with directions to the cemetery. The site allows you to look for a cemetery by state, then county, then the cemetery by name, if the cemetery is listed. This site is also supported volunteers and there are some photos posted here.                                                                                                                                    http://www.usgwtombstones.org/
