Tips on finding Cemeteries online

Today I am featuring other possibilities for finding cemeteries that you might be interested in. 


The Granary Burying Ground in Boston

The two blogs that follow, cover more than just cemeteries but are worth putting into your reader or following because they do feature tombstones and cemeteries that these two very active genealogists visit. I admire both of these ladies.

Now if you go to this blog and see what is presented click on the logo for the Graveyard Rabbit and it will take you to that associations site and links to more blogs about cemeteries in this "Graveyard Rabbit" group.

Of course you may want to study what is on the Old Colony blog before you do click.

There are several ways to find blogs about cemeteries.  One great way is by going to GeneaBloggers.  I am a member. On the right side of this blog just scroll to the logo for GeneaBloggers and click and then explore.  Or you can click this link to go directly to the Cemetery blogs who are members of GeneaBloggers.

Genealogy Blog finder is also another possibility:  http://blogfinder.genealogue.com/  It has topics that you can click on and explore including the cemetery category.

Google has their blog finder at this link:  http://www.google.com/blogsearch

On the right side of my blog is a list of Favorite Links that you might want to explore.  Do realize that websites like Interment and Find A Grave are not always complete for each cemetery.  Still it is worth checking them out.

Try just typing the name of the cemetery into Google and see what comes up.  I just typed in Cataraqui Cemetery into Google and it gave me a lot of hits, including my visit to that cemetery. I share my visit to this cemetery on The Man Who Lived Airplanes blog.  See the right side of this blog and scroll to my blog list and explore.


ENJOY AND HAVE FUN!
