Important information about this map
map was created with ArcView 2.1b and Corel Photopaint. It is a
comparison summary of several sources: a local paper map from Southern
Engineering, USGS maps, Louisiana GIS CD cemetery database extractions,
local library transcripts of cemeteries, on-line transcripts, and
personal cemetery visits.
The map cannot be viewed in Mozilla/Firefox and is best viewed with
Internet Explorer. In Internet Explorer use your mouse to roll over the
map and view the cemetery name. For those cemeteries with multiple
files or unknown transcriptions you will have to view the alpha index
to the left to find the transcription or view the GIS data.
Questions or comments?
your cemetery question or genealogy query to the web and assist others
with your information or just leave a message. If you can't find the
cemetery you are looking for this is the place to go.
Promoting awareness is the first step to preservation.
Why do we need Louisiana Cemetery Preservation?
A number of Louisiana cemeteries do not appear on the USGS maps and are
unknown, abandoned, or endangered. The LA CEMETERY PRESERVATION board
and email list is to organize and support the historical significance
of these Louisiana cemeteries as well as make others aware of an
unknown or unidentified cemetery. Those interested in this board may be
genealogists, historians, society members, parish government, churches
or community members, those familiar with using remote sensing
equipment and GPS in locating cemeteries. If you happen to come across
a cemetery site, you are encouraged to post! (In order to identify
cemeteries to USGS for inclusion, GIS coordinates must be given.)

The Association for Gravestone Studies
- "The Association for Gravestone Studies (AGS) was founded in 1977 for
the purpose of furthering the study and preservation of gravestones.

of all periods and styles. Through its publications, conferences,
workshops and exhibits, AGS promotes the study of gravestones from
historical and artistic perspectives, expands public awareness of the
significance of historic gravemarkers, and encourages individuals and
