Cemeteries in Delaware
Cemeteries may be associated with churches, privately managed sites, and small family plots. Many are listed below. No central resource of Delaware cemeteries exists that we are aware of, though several genealogical societies have ongoing transcription initiatives. DGS has published transcribed cemetery records in the DGS Journal. Check the DGS Journal Subject Index for details. Many more resources are provided in the Delaware Genealogical Research Guide.
