This list of 30,638 burials in the state of Georgia was copied over a 35-year period from headstones and markers in 600 cemeteries located in nearly 100 Georgia counties–altogether a remarkable tally representing, for those who would otherwise attempt to visit the cemeteries themselves, an incredible savings in time and effort. Arranged alphabetically by surname, entries include some or all of the following information: birth and death dates, names of parents and/or spouse, county, name of cemetery, and miscellaneous remarks such as armed forces affiliation. In addition, the location of the cemeteries at the time the transcriptions were made is also provided. While the work cannot claim to be exhaustive for all Georgia cemeteries–in fact major city cemeteries were largely ignored–this ambitious work is a major contribution to Georgia genealogy.
