Cemetery Records

Cemetery records contain a wealth of genealogical information. The ISU Library has a small number of books related to Iowa cemeteries as well as some for other states. Some of these are histories of a specific cemetery while others are actual lists of individuals buried there.

Use Quick Search on the library homepage and look for one of the following:

"cemetery records"

cemeter* AND iowa

Free websites providing the ability to search through cemetery records by name, birth or death date, or location of cemetery.
