CVHS Cemetery Survey and Find-A-Grave

In 1983, the Chattahoochee Valley Historical Society published A Survey of Cemeteries in Chambers County, Alabama.  Although very few epitaphs of people born after 1880 were included, this book has been a very helpful reference for researchers in east Alabama.  Currently the members of the CVHS are making an effort to update this book and include all burials to the present time.  This of course is a daunting task and an ongoing project.  Until such a publication can be realized, all cemetery surveys for Chambers County are being entered on the website FindAGrave.com.  With this site, each individual entry for a cemetery is assigned a memorial page that allows the contributor to upload photographs of the person, tombstone and also to link with other family members.  The database of FindAGrave now has over 65 million names and is an excellent reference tool that is highly recommended by the CVHS.
