One of the most common questions I get asked is... "Are there any transcriptions or photos for xyz available online?"

Many simply can't get to the places they would like to, so are restricted to online searching...

Here I hope to give you a list of sites referring to graveyards/cemeteries that have either photos, transcriptions or both... These are but a few.. I will add to them as time permits...

I will also include publications that contain these and will endeavour to update regularly. All contributions gratefully received, please make sure any links are working before sharing.

Feel free to share, however a link back to this blog would be appreciated.

You may add them to the Comments section below or contact me through the address available in About Me.

Thank you....

  1. Great idea, Looking forward to checking out some of these that are new to me and I'll dig out the ones I've used most (Dublin bias) and send them to you.
