Virtual Cemetery Tours

There are hundreds if not thousands of cemeteries around the world that I’d like toMargaret McCarty Mulford headstone visit in my ancestral quest.  I won’t make it to the majority of them but thanks to volunteers who post images and burial information on sites like Find-a-grave, Billion Graves and Names in Stone, I often find images of the headstones of my ancestors.

The images and data are very welcome and appreciated, but sometimes I wish I could see the cemeteries themselves to get a feel for the area where my ancestors lived and are buried.

Fortunately, I’ve found video tours for one or two of the cemeteries on my cemetery visit wish list posted on YouTube. 

To all of you fellow Find-a-gravers, Billion Gravers and tombstone photographers, add one more item to your cemetery visit check list.   Take videos of the cemetery and post them on YouTube. 

Share the look and feel of the cemetery with all the folks who wish they could visit the cemetery but probably never will..

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
