A "New-To-Me" Cemetery Website

Greetings Rabbits! I have come across a website that is new to me and may be of interest to you. It covers the State of North Carolina and is called "Cemetery Census." Here is a description from from website:

"Cemetery Census is a strictly volunteer effort to record the burials in local family, religious and municipal cemeteries. We are not associated with any government agency, religious affiliation or commercial cemetery entity. This is strictly a labor of love by the many volunteers who collect, record, photograph and make available these valuable resources.
Allen Dew is the originator and driving force behind Cemetery Census. Allen started collecting cemetery records from several sources in 1995 and 1996. A few years later, Allen published these records on the Internet. The collection has grown to include several counties in central North Carolina.
Plans and capabilities have been put into place to expand the collection to other counties and states in the surrounding area. Partnerships have been established with Historical Associations and Genealogical Societies to import and display their cemetery information."

It also has a section that explains and defines cemetery law in North Carolina. This is a wonderful project completely done by volunteers. Take a few minutes and check it out.
