African-American Cemeteries Online
Dig into the tombstone transcriptions at African-American Cemeteries Online to search for black ancestors’ burials. Each state has a page listing the cemeteries that volunteers have recorded, with links to the data—usually names, dates and the cemetery’s location and condition. The site is part of The Millennium Project, an attempt to build an online database of African-American genealogical material.
