A book would be placed in our library with additions added once a year. Map of cemetery when available
Also info would be on the Permian Basin Genealogical Society web page http://www.permiangen.org/pbgens-cemetery-project.html.
Our goal is to get every grave in every cemetery in the Permian Basin online to help preserve the graves as well as to, help others in their research, help those who cannot or are unable to visit these cemeteries themselves.
With so many cemeteries getting and being obsolete and/or endangered, and with so many headstones being weathered, broken, stolen, vandalized, etc. etc. We would like to preserve them as well as the newer cemeteries and headstones for the present and future genealogists and family members and to honor the memories of ours and your loved ones. This info is for those looking for loved ones to be able to find them. Also for genealogy research for those that may not live in the area to know where the ancestor may be located and find more records. This also Documents the history of our area, sowing average life spans where a populations were and have moved.
