The Tazewell County Genealogical & Historical Society has published records for the majority of these cemeteries.  Besides using the actual tombstone transcriptions, we used sexton & cemetery association records, funeral home records, death certificates, and obituaries to construct these listings.  In some cases, we have listings for cemeteries that no longer physically exist.

If you'd like to purchase any of the listings, determine which township contains the cemetery you are interested in - then order the appropriate volume of the Tazewell County Cemetery Records.  Or, if you wish, we can look it up for you as part of our Research Services.

Note: Some cemeteries are linked to pages containing additional information such as a history of the cemetery, location maps, driving directions, and photos.  Our goal is to eventually have links for all Tazewell County Cemeteries.
