Index of Somerset County Cemeteries
The Historical Society of Pennsylvania, State Library of Pennsylvania, and the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania have large collections of cemetery and burial records. Many of these records have been microfilmed by the LDS church and are available locally at the Family History Library.
The Historical and Genealogical Society of Somerset County and several of the larger libraries in the county have published volumes of the W.P.A. Index to Somerset County Cemeteries (burial dates prior to 1933).
The W.P.A. Cemetery lists have been transcribed by a team of volunteers of this project.
See also, the Tombstone Photo Album pages for photographs of some monument inscriptions.

Using Our Cemetery Index
The Cemdex - or Cemetery Index has been compiled by several volunteers for use on this website. Our main source is the WPA Cemetery Index and personal research (field trips to the cemetery). We are continually adding cemeteries to the index and hope to have all those listed in the index online someday for your use. Note: There are errors in both the index and in the 1933 transcriptions. Please use these records are guides only and verify with other source records (such as death certificates, etc.).
If you would like to assist us in the task of finishing our cemetery transcriptions, please contact us with the email addresses near the bottom of this page.
