York County Genealogy Project
Can you help identify the location of the known cemeteries in York County? If so, please e-mail me with with the name of the cemetery and location. Do you have a transcription of a cemetery in York County? Would you consider allowing me to post it on-line?
Researchers should be aware that the cemetery listing is our best effort to identify all extant cemeteries in York County. The cemetery transcriptions located on our website or linked to on external websites represent the best efforts by sincere contributors to share information. This data may be incomplete or may contain errors in interpretation of gravestone information or in transcription. This data should never be considered as primary validation or proof for genealogical purposes. It is offered here as tool to stimulate further research.
NOTE: The Status column reflects whether the cemetery listing is a “complete” or “partial” listing. However, a “complete” status does NOT indicate that every burial for that cemetery is listed. Sometimes stones are missing, people are buried in unmarked graves, or a burial occurred after a “reading” of the headstones was done. A “complete” status in this column means that maybe 95% of the headstones were recorded at the time of the transcription. If you know that a person was buried in a particular cemetery (from an obituary notice or death certificate), and is not listed, please let us know, and we’ll add the name to the listing. Also, if there is no indicator in the Status column, we just don’t know whether it’s partial or complete. If you know, please let us know and we’ll change that as well.
The Status column has also been “color coded” to indicate the presence or absence of photographs of the cemeteries. The following describes the meaning of the colored backgrounds:
white no photographs blue photograph of the cemetery, but no tombstone photos yellow anywhere from 1 to many tombstone photos. NOT complete green All tombstones photographed. Note that our definition of “all” is that at least 95% of the tombstones were photographed at the time. Note that there are a lot of tombstones missing from some of the cemeteries.
