Nebraska Tombstones

Looking for Nebraska tombstones?  You might want to check out the Nebraska State Genealogical Society's Tombstone Photo Project.  People, using digital cameras, are uploading photographs of tombstones in Nebraska cemeteries.  Some cemeteries are complete and some are not.  Many are yet to be photographed.  

If you are inclined to help with the project, review the instructions online.  Fall is a great time to visit a cemetery ... just look out for the poison ivy.  Those of you with Nebraska ancestry, keep checking back to see what has been added in your areas of interest.  

The Nebraska Tombstone Photo Project is also another place with tombstone photographs.  It is part of the USGenWeb Tombstone Project.  You can also locate Nebraska cemetery photographs at FindAGrave.  Click on "Search for a cemetery."  If you know the name of the cemetery and location, enter that, otherwise browse by state and county.  Leave a photo request and hopefully somebody will go to the cemetery and take a photograph for you.  

Finding tombstones in Nebraska is getting a lot easier.  Just take a look!
