|2.|| Cemeteries ||The table below spans many pages and lists all the burial places/cemeteries in alphabetical order. It could come in handy when you visit cemeteries: Access it via a smart phone and you'll have an itinerary of tombs and gravestones to check out, sometimes even with the address of the plot.
Click on a person's name in the table to see more information about that person, such as tomb/headstone photos and a map of the burial place.
Here are some example burial places in the table below:
Cemetery names use the abbreviation "St." for "Saint"; however, city and parish/county names do not use a period in the abbreviation and thus use "St" for "Saint." For example, you should look up "St. John the Baptist Cemetery" for the cemetery by that name in Edgard, Louisiana and "St John the Baptist, Louisiana, USA" for the parish where it's located. "Saint" or "Sainte" is usually spelled out and not abbreviated in French and Canadian names.
There is unfortunately not yet a search capability. Nor can you choose the table column you want to sort by. We hope to incorporate these enhancements at some future point.
