York Area Cemeteries

Most of the research to locate these cemeteries was originally done by the York County Historical Association, and published by them as an annotated map. This web listing is only possible because that work had been done.
Each of the links on this page brings up a “satellite view” image in Google Maps(tm). You can use that service’s features to provide whatever details you need to find the cemetery if you wish to visit it personally. A few small family plots are not included. Check with Kilgore Memorial Library or the York County Historical Association (402) 362-2990 for information about them.
