Cemetery Records


More people live in New York City than any other city in the US, and, consequently, many die here as well.  Some of New York’s biggest cemeteries have placed their burial records online, which can be a useful place to start looking for information on New York residents of the past. Here’s a few links to some that we’ve found (click the links in parentheses to see a Google Map of the cemetery), and feel free to post a comment if you know of others not listed here!
