Online Catalog of Cecil County Tombstones Expand to Over 30,000 Entries

One of the Historical Society’s most experienced family history researchers and a past president of the Genealogical Society of Cecil County, Gary Burns, has worked several years transcribing tombstones at practically every known cemetery in Cecil County. From Bald Friar to Warwick, and every other place in between, he and helpers, have visited quite old country graveyards, as well as those in towns and villages, to record data found on the memorials. Once they collected the information, they entered it into an Excel Spreadsheet.

Gary has given the Historical Society this insightful work so it could be made available on the Web and it will be extremely helpful for researchers. As it stands now, it has just been expanded to contain over 30,000 entries for Cecil County Tombstones. It is still a work in progress and we will add additional data as Gary makes it available. By-the-way, when he first posted it online, it had 16,000 entries.

Thanks Gary for making this valuable update available online.  Click here to go the records
