Cemeteries of Sarasota County Florida - A Record of Births, Deaths,
In 1992, members of the Genealogical Society of Sarasota, Inc completed
a survey of all of the Sarasota County cemeteries, and compiled a listing
that was published in a book titled Cemeteries of Sarasota County Florida
- A Record of Births, Deaths and Burials. This book has been out of
print for several years. In 2007, several members of GSS prepared the data to
add it to our GSS website. GSS is pleased to be able to share the data with you
here via the internet.
This Book contains cemetery records from Sarasota County, Florida. The
data is organized into files based on the Cemetery Name and Alphabetically
by Surname. Adobe Reader is used to view and search the contents. Click
