What is the Michigan Cemetery Sources web site?
The Michigan Cemetery Publications web site is an online compilation of cemetery sources available at the Library of Michigan from over 3,700 cemeteries.

What information can be found in these sources?
Source information varies. Most are lists of names of persons from tombstones, although some may include sexton’s records or obituaries. In some cases, a combination of these types of information may be found.

Why can't I find any personal names online in the cemetery I'm looking at?
Not all cemeteries have transcriptions online. Check these sites for potential additons to cemeteries: http://usgwtombstones.org/, http://www.rootsweb.com/~migenweb/county_list.html, and http://www.interment.net.

Why isn’t there a transcription available for the cemetery I am researching?
The Michigan Cemetery Sources web site only lists cemetery publications available at the Library of Michigan and some found on the Internet. There may be published cemetery transcriptions that the Library does not own. Many cemeteries have not been transcribed. If you know of available printed transcriptions that we do not note, please let us know. Please provide order information, and the title and author if possible. We would also like to know about links to Internet sites with names of burials too.

Who do I contact for help?
For questions about this site, please email the Help Desk at librarian@michigan.gov.

How can I get a paper copy of this program?
Information about how to obtain copies of the Michigan Cemetery Source Book can be found by clicking the "Copies" menu item at the top or bottom of each page. Published in 1994, the Source Book does not contain transcriptions received by the Library since that date.

Where can I get information about beginning my genealogical research?
The Library of Michigan has compiled a list of links at Genealogy Resources that you may find helpful as you begin your genealogical research.

How can I find the location of a cemetery online?
The Michigan CemeteryAtlas is not online.  Try using MapQuest  www.mapquest.com to find the location of a town or city.
