World Burial Index

I'm finally cleaning out all the piles in my office and adding articles to this blog! There is a relatively new website focused on burial records from around the globe. World Burial Index only launched last summer. Search their database of gravestone inscriptions and see what turns up. I typed in "Taylor" and found hits for records from England, Ghana and South Africa. Searching is free, but in order to look at the hits you need to join or sign up for a free trial. Since it's based in England, the cost of an annual membership is 22.95 English pounds not dollars. There are images of church memorials, war memorials and cemeteries. You can add your own material to the site, including family photographs. Bookmark and Share

Thanks for all you do!!
