Wicomico Cemeteries Project

__

A joint project of . . .
The Wicomico County MDGenWeb and Handley's Eastern Shore MD Genealogy Project

Our aim is to list all the cemeteries in Wicomico County, and on another site, those in Somerset County. Obviously, this is going to be a massive undertaking (no pun intended!), and is going to take quite a while to accomplish. This project would not be possible without the help of volunteers to walk the cemeteries and record the data on the stones. Can you help? If you are interested, take a look at the "How To" page for instructions. Thanks!

Cemetery Project

The district designations in the location description of each cemetery is as found in the 1877 Atlas of the Eastern Shore maps. A complete set of the individual, highly-detailed election district map images can be found on Mike Hitch's great web site. A less detailed map showing all of the election districts' locations can be viewed here. Following some of the district designations in the cemeteries listing, you'll see GPS coordinates (latitude and longitude), generously provided by Paul Willing to aid in precisely locating the cemetery.
