Faster and easier to search for Funeral Directors who will direct you to the correct cemetery where your ancestors may be buried. It takes longer time and more research if you search only cemeteries.
I found that some funeral directors in certtain cities (not all just a couple) if near the cemetery you're interested in were willing to photograph the grave and email the photo.

During my more than two years of research trying to find ancestors and cemeteries. I have dicovered that it is faster and easier to search for Funeral Directors and Funeral Homes. From them I get the name of the cemetery where the person I am researching is interred. It took me only one week to locate people I had been searching for in two years! By contacting Funeral Directors!

As an example, I was contacting cemeteries, located the name in the appropriate cemetery, however, the cemetery had suffered a fire in its offices and storage facilities and had no information other than a last name. But contacting the Funeral Directors of that city I was guided to the Funeral home who took charge of the funeral arrangements as far back as 65 years ago. As a result I located not one but several of my ancestors. Since Funeral Directors do not concentrate their work on one cemetery.

Try then searching for funeral directors and funeral homes. That seemed to work better for me.
I had tried to find another ancestor's burial iste as well searching cemeteries. It would have taken me through at least 1,000 locations. But finding Funeral Directors I had a shorter list and within five searches I found the correct funeral director who took care of my ancestor's arrangements. It turns out that they service several if not all the cemeteries in or near their location.

So go to your search engine, find yellow pages, look up funeral directors in the area of your inquiry then contact them by email or phone as I did.You'll be surprise how willing they are to help in genealogy research.
