Cemetery Records

Records listed below were transcribed by David Podmajersky from tombstone inscriptions, and originally published on, "Distant Cousin" a website that went offline around 2016. We were able to salvage this transcription before it became permanently lost. Many of the tombstones were no longer readable by the time he had photographed them.

Note: This is only a partial recording of interments as David was never able to visit every gravesite.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
