CemeteryRegistry.US Project

$10k goal

CemeteryRegistry.US is striving to be the most complete & accurate free list of U.S. Cemeteries.

I believe that cemeteries should not become lost just because the knowledge of their location is forgotten or because the name has been changed. Locating a cemetery should not be as difficult as it is now. Preserving who we are and where we came from can be accomplished by preventing our cemeteries from being forgotten. The best way to do this is to collect information about cemeteries and verify their location.

Funds will help defray: administrative costs, equipment, database maintenance, travel expenses, and advertising.

CemeteryRegistry.US Supports:

Thank you for the compliments and for recognizing the uniqueness of my project.

I started this project when I was working on a different project and was in need of a list of cemeteries and their location. What I found was either incorrect or incomplete. It was very disappointing.

The discovery of this inadequate cemetery information inspired me to create a registry of cemeteries with as much correct information as I could find. I decided that the key piece of information for each cemetery listing should be GPS coordinates. That way, anyone looking for a cemetery would be able to literally drive (or walk) directly to it! Thus, CemeteryRegistry.US was born!

My project intent is to make the most complete and accurate listing of cemeteries in the US. I have received feedback from others telling me that my project is the same as Find a Grave and Billiongraves, and that I am wasting time. As you have probably noticed, these websites are mainly internment listings. The other information, as I mentioned above, may be incorrect or incomplete. My belief is that putting in the time and effort to verify location information is never a waste of time. How exactly will someone be able to visit great-great Aunt Millie's grave if they can't find the actual cemetery!?

I started CemeteryRegistry.US over 5 years ago as a life project. Everything related to this project has been created by me and 100% funded out of my own pocket. The requested funding via the GoFundMe is not only to help get the word out by getting articles and mentions in various publications, but also to re-design and launch an app version of the website with built-in navigation and the capability to submit a cemetery location and photos while physically being at the cemetery. Funds will also help to cover costs of time and travel while researching cemetery locations, as well as on-going website performance and capability improvements.

My hope is that CemeteryRegistry.US will help connect people with their own personal history!

Thanks again for your interest and for your efforts in preserving cemeteries!
