This Project is about remembering our dead and preserving our history!!

If you would like to transcribe data for this Project, or you have already done cemetery surveys and would like to share that work with the world, please let us hear from you.

All Cemetery Surveys, Gravestone Inscriptions, Tombstone Photos and other files related to cemeteries are posted in the WVGenWeb Archives. It is not necessary to submit files to both the Tombstone Transcription Project and the WV Archives.

Please understand, I am unable to respond to queries about ancestors, cemeteries, or do lookups! If a cemetery is not listed, we do not have any information available.

To submit a cemetery, please contact:
