Objective: Create a comprehensive inventory of burial locations in Baltimore County as a resource tool for Genealogists.
Parameters: Current Baltimore County political boundaries + relocated (in or out).
Current count: about 465 sites with 365 geocoded.
A burial is defined as a location where remains are or were placed anywhere in Baltimore County. This includes cemeteries, family burial plots, Columbariums, relocated burials and locations where burials occurred or were recorded but may now be lost, markers gone, built-over or not clearly identified.
This is a work in progress. Additions, corrections and pictures (preferably electronic) are appreciated. Please contact us if you can add to this genealogical resource. It is not our current goal to enumerate each burial at these locations. Many members of the Baltimore County Genealogical Society have contributed many hours to creating this, but there is much still to do. Additional information may be available at the BCGS Library.
So far, about 365 locations have been placed to a map. ALL of the cemetery names are listed following the map.
