Names in Stone was started after a man spent much time and many miles searching out his relatives in a small cemetery in Alabama. During his search, he also found the headstones of others he had been collecting information on, even though he didn't originally know where they were buried. The story of this man's journey demonstrates how much one can learn from spending time among the peaceful headstones of a graveyard, imagining the people that have come and gone before.
Names in Stone is designed to make such searches that much easier for family members and genealogists alike. The interactive maps included on the Names in Stone website allow visitors to actually view the headstones they are searching for without ever leaving their home. With an extensive archive that is growing all the time, this online collection is a good starting point to find individuals who lived and died in this country for well over a century.
