FACSI is pleased to present this database to assist researchers in determining the burial places of Staten Island ancestors. While every care has been taken to produce an accurate transcription of the various burial records and references available, errors undoubtedly will occur. As with any secondary source, researchers are advised to confirm data shown here by comparison to the original source wherever possible. FACSI would welcome receipt of documented corrections to any erroneous data herein. Special thanks goes to Janet Britton for giving our archival database a forum and for lending technical advice and assistance in bringing this project to the electronic community.

I could have made it queryable only; but in the case of cemetery records, it can be important to 1) know who might be buried nearby, or 2) be able to find a person even if the spelling is slaughtered. Please have patience when waiting for this very valuable data. - janet
