Tombstones can be a valuable piece of evidence in finding answers to our past. Any genealogical research would not be complete without referencing a tombstone or a graveyard.
We like to announce that we started the Armenian Tombstone Project. The purpose of this project is to collect any burial records for Armenians around the world and archive them in a database. These records will include the following:
- Name, Birth, Death information
Name Of cemetery
Location (Town, City, Country)
The tombstones of our ancestors were always meant to be lasting memorials to the lives of those gone before. We need to preserve this valuable information before they are lost.
We are looking for any information or ideas you might have to assist us in this project. At this time we are collecting information about various Armenian cemeteries around the world. (Name, Location and contact info if possible), once we have this information we can start with each graveyard and collect their tombstone information. If you would like to be a part of this project, please let us know. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
