To return to the "Genealogy in St. Louis" Web Site click here.

There's only one thing worse for a genealogist than finding that the cemetery inscription he or she needs has never been transcribed. And that is that it's been transcribed, but they don't know it. Hopefully the following list will help in that case. So get out those old death certificates and obits that listed the cemetery, and take a look at the work that some dedicated volunteers have already done for you.

Listed with each cemetery is the source material in which the headstone inscription can be found. In some cases there is more than one source; often this includes the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. If the source is not available to you locally be sure to verify the film number before ordering it from SLC. The vast majority of the hardcopy sources are available at the St. Louis County Library Headquarters location and the the main branch of the St. Louis Public Library. In a few cases there are other repositories listed where the inscription source can be found. Most of this information came from Elizabeth Kot and Shirley Thomson's Missouri Cemetery Inscription Sources: Print and Microfilm (Vallejo, Calif.: Indices Publishing, 1995) via the Ancestry database web site. I've tried to update the more recent activity. If you see errors or omissions please let me know so that I can keep this list as up-to-date as possible.

The abbreviations that I used can be found at the end of this list.
