I was wondering if there is a map of all the known cemeteries in Texas?

There is a great map book for cemetery seekers called "The Roads of Texas". They are not denoted by name, but locations are indicated by a small cross on the map. It's a great tool for locating cemeteries in rural areas.

Johnny, where are you located? Remember that Texas has 264 counties ... no complete map that I know anything about and I've been 'doing cemeteries' for 30+ years. Your best bet is to use several items and be aware that none are complete. The Roads of Texas Atlas is excellent - and they have the same for other states. The Key Map Atlas is excellent and is done for different counties; they change their listing from time to time --- have never been able to get a good reason why! County Road Maps from the highway department are excellent - from Texas Highway Dept in Austin or from the various county highway depts. And then there are people like me who do 'directories' of various counties. Use them all together and you have as good a guide as possible -----

It sure would be nice, if someone (GENWEB?) would start a listing of cemetaries using GPS coordinates!

www.findagrave.com is trying to do just that; locate every single cemetery, not just in the US, but elsewhere. They need volunteers from every county to get this done. Signing up is free. Help is found on the forums. I am trying to locate and photograph each and every cemetery and each and every tombstone in my county. Thankfully, I'm not the only one in this county who is contributing. Even if you do only one cemetery, think that someone may be looking for just that cemetery. GPS co-ordinates along with a map are encouraged.

www.topozone.com Click on "View Maps", then click "Texas", then click on your county. It will give you a list of map features, including cemeteries. It's not 100% comprehensive, but it is one more resource we can use.

I am working in Wilson County, Texas (just southeast of San Antonio), and I post all my photos on www.findagrave.com.
