View an excerpt: PDF (297kb)

     The second installment of our Historical Atlas of Alabama series focuses on the locations of Alabama cemeteries for all 67 counties.  Cemeteries are plotted on a county by county basis on color maps with an accompanying spreadsheet of remarks.  The spreadsheet includes information on church affiliation, approximate number of graves, first and last interments, common surnames, and unique or particularly interesting aspects about the cemetery  that add to the history of each county. Examples of this might include pioneering settlers, famous persons, unique tombstones, military heroes, etc.

     This work is 688 pages in length and perfect bound.  It contains a gazetteer of places and an alphabetical listing of all cemeteries found within the volume.  The Atlas can be purchased as a whole or on a county by county basis.  In addition to the material from Volume II, county by county material will include excerpts from the Historical Atlas of Alabama, Volume I: Historical Locations by County. Counties will be comb-bound and customized for each order. If your interests exceed 19 counties, it would be more economical to purchase the entire volume (see order for cost information).
