A really great feature of this website is the comments section where you can leave a comment to find others researching the same cemetery or surname. You never know, you may end up connected to a distant relative!
- Full name search
- Surname list
- Maiden name list
- Family name list
- By the first letter of the surname which gives a name list that enables you to look at all the holdings, they have with that surname.
- By a cemetery name and then by surname within that cemetery.
- Special menus – KIA, WWI, WWII, War Memorials, Famous People, Murders, Accidental Deaths

What can you do?
The reality is this is a huge undertaking. The more people who become involved, the more photos available to all people worldwide. If every genealogist took some photos of their local cemetery, whether they have ancestors there or not, we would have the most amazing resource imaginable.
- Photograph headstones
- Index photographs
- Donate to the project
- Tell people about the project
- Become a volunteer
I have written a number of posts on cemeteries, one of them you can read here.
Head over to the Gravestone Photographic Resource Project page today and find your ancestors.
Even better, volunteer to take photos – the more people that donate their time to taking photographs, the more headstone images that will be available to all genealogists!
