A reminder about PHGS data.
Please remember that information published on PHGS has not been verified. This is true of all similar sites, Ancestry, Find a Grave, Family Search, Historical Society sites – all publish information for you to use, but by their nature, none of them can vouch for every bit of data they publish.  Instead, think of the information you find as clues to help you do things like request verification for birth, death, and marriage events.

All PHGS cemetery lists are works in progress.  However, we have found all kinds of things that contribute to missing and inaccurate information: cemetery walkers can only record marked graves, some stones are unreadable or missing. Even when the list originates with the cemetery record, some burials may never have been recorded, records are damaged or illegible . . . and it goes on.

You can help improve our cemetery lists by emailing us when you spot inaccurate information or a missing person. There is an email link at the bottom of every page.

One last thing about the cemeteries - the cemetery association for each cemetery has the actual cemetery records, PHGS does not. To request a record check, you must contact the cemetery association directly.
