Cemetery Microfilm Records

The records for Eastern, Greenwood and Schardein Cemeteries (as a general rule from their beginnings through 1930, though some records date later) have been microfilmed. Below you will find a listing of the burial records by call number for the rolls of microfilm. The project number is: KY 0567A. At the end of this table is my recommendation about how you should consider searching for individuals.

First, you must realize that the majority of the documents (call numbers 2046977, 2046978 and 2046979) listed in the table, above, are "daybooks". Daybooks are a chronological listing of burials made in the cemetery. Unless you know the specific burial date of a specific individual, I would recommend that you not begin with the daybooks.

 

The first body of documents to begin with is the Burial Index cards. These are an abstraction of the daybooks and you should note that they are incomplete. The Burial Index cards are divided into three periods: pre-1900, 1900-1949 and 1950 to the present. The cards that date after 1950 were not microfilmed.

 

Once you find an individual listed in the Burial Index cards, then you should proceed to the daybooks for the period.

 

If you have ancestors who are buried in a family lot, you might wish to go to the Lot Cards (call numbers 2047319, 2047320) or the Lot Owners Book (part of call number 2046979). The Lot Cards will provide a list of who is buried on the lot and a small map depicting the locations of the burials and monuments (if any).

 

If you have ancestors buried on a "single section", you may be able to find records of their burial, but there is likelihood that you may never find their graves. Many sections have been completely reburied and have disappeared from current maps. These sections, in Eastern Cemetery are: CHC – Cave Hill Corner, CW – Cheap Willow, ETD – Elm Tree Division, OSG – Old Slave Grounds and WHC – Work House Corner. In Greenwood Cemetery, most of the sections have been buried twice, burials prior to 1930 are very difficult to locate. Many sections in Schardein Cemetery have no records for them these include the Schardein Lot Section and Public Burial Grounds. Research indicates that many of the old sections in Schardein were buried a second time (what is now Section 3). You may want to review my brief histories of these cemeteries.

 

It goes without saying that the earlier the records for any of these cemeteries are the least complete. For burials prior to 1860, the daybooks simply contain a name (and occasionally a partial location) listed by date. Though in a few records there are causes of death listed. In about 1860, additional information was kept, you may get the name, undertaker, cost of the grave and a grave location – again, all listed by date. It was not until 1950 that additional information was kept, these sets of data include: nativity, next-of-kin, race, sex, age, birth date and death date (different from burial date). Many of the burials listed after 1950 include a copy of the published obituary.
