illinois cemetery records

Illinois is a state located in the Midwest region of the United States. It is the sixth most populous state in the country and has a rich history dating back to the 17th century. One important aspect of Illinois' history is its cemetery records, which are a valuable resource for genealogists and historians.

Illinois cemetery records date back to the early days of settlement in the region. As a result, there are many cemeteries located throughout the state, ranging from small family plots to large public cemeteries. These cemeteries contain the remains of people from all walks of life, including settlers, farmers, soldiers, and politicians.

Illinois cemetery records provide a wealth of information for genealogists and historians. They can reveal important details about a person's life, including their birth and death dates, their occupation, and their family relationships. Cemetery records can also provide insight into the history of a particular community, as they often contain the names of prominent local residents and information about the founding and development of the cemetery itself.

Cemetery records published here were acquired from Illinois cemeteries, churches, municipalities, associations and genealogists specifically for family history and local history research.

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.
