Cemeteries in Kentucky Database

The following is taken from the introduction of the Cemeteries in Kentucky Database site at the Kentucky Historical Society. "The Cemetery Preservation Program's database of registered cemeteries is a continuation of the work started by the Attorney General's Office in 2000. The historical information contained [t]here (as much as possible considering space restrictions) details the cemetery name and location, sorted by county name."

Entries are sorted by county name; each entry gives the cemetery name and location. A notes field may contain information about African Americans' (including slaves and free persons) burials. The listing of cemeteries will be updated quarterly as additional entries are added. For more information contact the Kentucky Historical Society.
