New Orleans Tomb & Cemetery Lookup



The database currently contains 4721 people interred
in 980 tombs with 1947 photos.




I’ve spent a lot of time wandering the city’s graveyards, taking pictures while researching for volunteer groups and assisting people with their genealogical records. After a while it seemed like a good idea to start a database to track of the tombs I’d photographed, which will help not only genealogists but keep a visual record of these delicate tombs, many of which are crumbling around us.

If there’s a specific tomb you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to e-mail using the "Contact" form above and I’ll be happy to see what I can do.

On the other hand, if you’re just looking for images of certain styles of tombs or interesting details, we can do that too!

Hope you find it helpful!
