Welcome to Historical-Data.com!
What is Historical-Data.com?
Historical-Data.com contains a database of cemetery and gravestone images, most of which are from the northeastern United States. This database, which you can browse in the cemeteries section, currently contains more than 39,900 images of gravestones, wills, obits and photos from 389 cemeteries organized by country, state, and county. Many cemeteries have interments with no tombstones so we have been adding other info in the form of obits, wills etc because there is no other record of their burial there. In the near future we will be adding old town photos and other old photos of historical interest.

The links in the historical societies are all local and they have contact info for each society. The links on the useful websites are to various types of websites pertaining to research, some have contact info.
