Hi Bill,

My hat is off to you for undertaking this project! I'm concerned about all all unidentified graves and cemeteries in the U.S. Often times grave sites are the only record we can find of a person's death.

I know that you've had your project underway for a time now, but here's some web sites that you might find interesting:

Brazos County, Texas Cemeteries, www.linkpendium.com/genealogy/USA/TX/Brazos/cem/

Brazos County, Texas, USGenWeb project Archives, www.usgwarchives.net/tx/brazos/brozostoc.htm

Most genealogical societies in the U.S. are actively involved with cemetery indexing. The Brazos Genealogical Association, www.brazosgenealogy.org/ might have more info about cemeteries in their county.

Will you consider posting the info that you find with them because most of out of the area (state or even country) genealogists contact the local genealogical society? Of course you can post your own link at the linkpendium web site too. Successful Searching!
