As of this writing (September, 2006), more than 290 cemeteries and burial places have been identified in Monroe County, Mississippi. The late Dr. W.A. Evans of Aberdeen transcribed many of these cemeteries in the 1930s; the bulk of his cemetery transcriptions have not been made available online. A few other researchers have transcribed specific cemeteries and their published work has not been made available online because of a variety of reasons. Other contributors, however, have posted their transcriptions on the MSGenWeb site (see Monroe County Cemetery Records), the USGenWeb Archives Project for Monroe County, Monroe County GenForum, and/or other web sites.

Within the online transcriptions that are freely available to all who inquire, several thousand individual burials are recorded. But accessing all of these records requires a slow process of opening multiple files and looking for names among lists that are not standardized in format much less arranged in alphabetical order. This index streamlines that process and makes the countless hours of work done by the on-line contributors more readily accessible to Monroe County researchers and family historians.

The burials in this index are listed alphabetically by SURNAME, then Given Name (or initials), followed by the year of birth and year of death (if recorded). Preceding each entry is a three-digit code number that identifies the place of burial. These code numbers and corresponding cemeteries are shown below. An i following the three-digit cemetery code number indicates that the person listed has an on-line obituary posted on the Monroe County GenForum webpages.

Researchers are advised to look at the individual cemetery listings/transcriptions for additional information, including map directions, notes/corrections provided by other researchers and, in most cases, more complete dates.

If you cannot locate your relative, remember that most of these cemetery transcriptions are not complete. There are thousands of additional burials not included in this index. Additionally, many more graves are marked only with field stones or have been lost to time and memory. NOTE: Although several of the cemeteries listed below have a complete transcription, many of those listed do not. In some cases only a burial or two is listed from a cemetery. More volunteers are needed to complete the transcription of burials in Monroe County.
