reminder about PHGS data.
published on PHGS has not been verified. This is true of all similar
sites, Ancestry, Find a Grave, Family Search, Historical
– all publish information for you to use, but by their nature, none of
them can vouch for every bit of data they publish. Instead,
think of the information you find as clues to help you do
things like request verification for birth, death, and marriage events.
All PHGS cemetery lists are works in progress. However, we
have found all kinds of things that contribute to missing and
inaccurate information: cemetery walkers can only record marked graves,
some stones are unreadable or missing. Even when the list originates
the cemetery record, some burials may never have been recorded, records
are damaged or illegible . . . and it goes on.
You can help improve our cemetery lists by emailing us when you spot
inaccurate information or a missing person. There is an email link at
the bottom of every page.
One last thing about the cemeteries - the cemetery association for each
cemetery has the actual cemetery records, PHGS does not. To request a
record check, you must contact the cemetery association directly.
