Missouri Gravestone Project

The Missouri Gravestone Project was created as a non-profit organization to help preserve Missouri history by acquiring digital images of every tombstone in the state.  You can search the site's database by county, surname or cemetery name.

The mission of the Missouri Gravestone Project is "to capture digital images of every gravestone in Missouri, and preserve these images and the information they provide for researchers and future generations.  This invaluable historical information, especially the older gravestones from before the middle of the last century are in danger of being lost forever, and many are already gone.  We are volunteers and this project is a "Not For Profit" organization."
