The Dallas Genealogical Society has a long history of documenting burials in and around Dallas, having published a five volume edition of our Dallas County Texas: Genealogical Data From Early Cemeteries between 1981 and 1993 (see the Other Publications page for more information about these books).

Our work in this area has continued to the present day. One of the resources we now provide is a Google Map showing the location of every cemetery we are aware of in the greater Dallas area. Clicking on any icon reveals information about the cemetery and (in most cases) a picture of the cemetery entrance (very helpful when trying to visit some of the smaller locations as they are becoming increasingly difficult to locate due to urbanization).

Our members have also been entering information about burials in our online, searchable database. At present, this database contains more than 36,000 records from 28 different cemeteries. Note that these records have been accumulated (and validated) from a variety of sources, starting with a walk through of the cemetery itself by DGS volunteers. Additional information has been obtained from obituaries, funeral home records and other sources, making this one of the most accurate and comprehensive collections available.

We are also creating a web page for and about each cemetery as it is added to our database: These are available on the menu associated with this page. These pages provide exact location details, pictures of the entrance, maps and other information of interest to anybody who is researching burials at that location.

We are also hosting several collections that index burials that have been provided by other supporters of the Dallas Genealogical Society. Information from these cemeteries has not yet been incorporated into our database: they are marked with an asterisk (*) in the menu.
