This is a great tool to find cemeteries in Pittsylvania Co. It is the website for Land Plat or Tract info.
On the left menu click on Layers, then Parcels, then select Cemetary Locations (they misspelled it).
You can see there are tons of cemeteries, but of course there are alot they don't know about too.
You can zoom into any area & see the cemeteries, the tract info (owner, etc.) You can also see who owns various tracts in the area. When I zoom in close enough I like to click on hybrid view to get aerial & map features combined, makes it easier to see whats around a cemetery.
Ever wonder who owns your great-great grandparents farm now? With this you can find out.
I think this is a great way to work with folks on findagrave.com to get as many old cemeteries documented as possible. If you know of a cemetery location they don't have please contact them so they can add it to the map.
