This database contains an index to cemetery and burial details posted on Find A Grave.

Find A Grave provides users a virtual cemetery experience, with images of grave markers from around the world, as well as photos, biographies, and other details uploaded by volunteers. You may find obituaries and links to other family members included as well.

Find A Grave got its start in 1995 when founder Jim Tipton built a website to share his hobby of visiting the graves of famous people. The website attracted thousands of visitors and soon grew to be more than just a collection of famous people’s graves, as volunteers began uploading images of headstones, burial information, and personal memorials from around the world. Today, Find A Grave is home to more than 110 million memorials.

Note that all data is uploaded by Find A Grave volunteers. If you would like to contribute additional or new information, you can do so via the Find A Grave website.

Want to Help?

Find A Grave volunteers both make and fill requests for headstone images. You can become a “Graver” yourself with the Find A Grave mobile app. It’s free and available here.

The Death Master File (DMF) from the Social Security Administration (SSA) currently contains over 89 million records and is updated weekly. The file is created from internal SSA records of deceased persons possessing social security numbers and whose deaths were reported to the SSA. Often this was done in connection with filing for death benefits by a family member, an attorney, a mortuary, etc. Each update of the DMF includes corrections to old data as well as additional names. [NOTE: If someone is missing from the list, it may be that the benefit was never requested, an error was made on the form requesting the benefit, or an error was made when entering the information into the SSDI.] Beginning in 2014, legislative rules governing the SSDI changed. Going forward, records from the most recent 3 year period will not be available to Archives.com. Once a record is older than 3 years (1095 days), it can be published .Archives.com does not provide this number in the Social Security Death Index for any person that has passed away within the past 10 years. The absence of a particular person in the SSDI is not proof this person is alive. Additionally, there is a possibility that incorrect records of death have been entered on the DMF. The Social Security Administration does not guarantee the accuracy of the file.
