Cemetery Logs For Gathering Genealogy Information

Going on a successful trip to a cemetery to take photos, record information, or do a headstone rubbing requires a bit of advance planning.  The problem with other cemetery logs and transcription forms that we've seen is that the information isn't laid out logically, or there are important items missing.  Because some of our own genealogy trips have taken us to as many as a dozen cemeteries in a single weekend, we designed our own cemetery log that is user friendly and enables us to be more productive with our time.

Cemetery log sheetOur cemetery log sheet is colorful, easy to understand and complete, and will help you plan a better trip. You'll be completing the information you already know before visiting a cemetery, and will then complete the rest from your ancestor's headstone.

Be Prepared For Your Cemetery Visit

The key to any cemetery visit is to get the location of your ancestors grave before visiting the cemetery.  This will save you countless hours.  If the cemetery is still actively managed, you'll be able to get a map of the cemetery and the exact location of the grave(s) from the cemetery's office.   It's usually best to call the cemetery in advance and request that this information be mailed to you.  If it is an older cemetery that is no longer actively managed, chances are that someone has already walked the cemetery and recorded the names by section and row.  If you can't find this information on the Internet, try contacting the local genealogy society where the cemetery is located.

Our cemetery log sheet is in Adobe Acrobat PDF format so that you can save it to disk now for later printing.
