Jefferson County, Kentucky Cemeteries

Welcome to my Jefferson County, Kentucky, Cemeteries Site

Before I get into the purpose of this page, please allow me to tell you about my new book - available as of March, 2005. I have compiled over 200 pages of death notices, obituaries, and articles concerning the passing of individuals from Jefferson County in the early 1800s. For my online flier with a complete description and order information, click on or type http://www.angelfire.com/ky/unclearmy/deaths1.html

Now, onto the cemetery information ... On this page, and other pages on this site, you will find just a few of the many cemeteries listings I have for the County. If you don't find a listing on this site, (for deaths which occurred prior to 1915 since those are the ones I have recorded and since beyond that you should be able to get death certificates directly from the county), feel free to contact me with the name and approximate date of death (if known) of your ancestor, and I'll be happy to check other cemetery listings to see if I have any records of your ancestor. Currently, I have these older records for over 120 cemeteries.

NOTE: If you choose to e-mail me, please be aware that it may take a while before you receive a reply. I am currently in the military and my free time for the internet is often (but not always) very limited.

Also, while Jefferson County did at one time cover the whole state of Kentucky, I only have records for the area that is currently defined as Jefferson County, (basically in and around Louisville).
