Somerset Cemeteries Project

A joint project of . . .
The Somerset County MDGenWeb and Handley's Eastern Shore MD Genealogy Project

Our aim is to list as many cemeteries as possible in Somerset County, and on another site, those in Wicomico County - NOTE: THERE ARE A LOT OF CEMETERIES DONE IN WICOMICO. Weather events, acid rain, vandalism, and neglect all take a toll on grave markers, so there is an urgency to record them before the inscriptions can no longer be read. This project would not be possible without the help of volunteers to walk the cemeteries and record the data on the stones. Can you help? If you are interested, take a look at the "How To" page for instructions. Thanks!

In Memory of James Trader

The district designations in the location description of each cemetery is as found on this 1877 Atlas map. A complete set of the individual, highly-detailed election district map images can be found on the 1877 Atlas of the Eastern Shore. A less detailed (quicker loading) map showing all of the election districts' locations can be viewed here.
