Locate a Grave in Honolulu

For the next generation: As the self appointed family history person I wish to locate as many HIMAN resting places as possible.

There are several grave locating websites now available on the internet. Some of these sites you pay for, many of them need registeration to use the site.

One of the most popular activities on the Web is tracking down genealogy records. Part of this search includes finding graves, interment records, or gravesite information. The following sites are some of the best resources online for finding this information.

•FindaGrave: with millions of cemetery records, this site is a great resource. Includes a search for famous graves, location-based searching, date search, a listing of "interesting" monuments, and over 70 million grave records you can search through.

• Offers an extensive database of cemetery and burial records from thousands of cemeteries all over the world. Special collections include federal and state veterans' cemeteries, cemeteries of the California missions, and cemeteries that have been unfortunately flooded by dam building.

•Arlington National Cemetery: Probably the most famous cemetery in the United States. and one of the oldest. Only interments conducted after 1999 can actually be found online using the Nationwide Gravesite Locator; however, the site also offers a detailed list of daily funerals, comprehensive burial information, and a detailed listing of historical figures buried at the site.

•Cemetery Junction Directory: One of the oldest genealogical sites on the Web, with over 100,000 separate cemetery listings from all over the world. Includes cemetery listings and transcriptions (provided by volunteers) from the United States, Canada, and Australia.

•National Cemeteries: Here, you can browse through 131 national cemeteries in 39 different states. Click on a particular listing, and you'll see office and visitation hours, directions, historical information, historical figures buried there, and direct contact information.

•Death, Burial, Cemetery, and Obituaries: There is a wealth of information available here, including birth and death information, family origins, cemetery and interment details, and obituaries (note: this site requires a membership, but a free trial is available).

* Cemeteries and Funeral Homes: Exhaustive list of resources to find graves or cemeteries or cemetery records.
Cyndi's List is one of the best genealogical resources online.

*Locate a Grave is where I found the following data:

This is a small sample of the data available for the Himan's.

Blogging is a good place to store data. I wish to continue indexing our data on my blogs.

These sites are very useful. Exact location within the cemetery are often included, many sites also now offer photos of the head stones, plots, cemetary front gates.

The four names below identify the name of the deceased.
Birth date Death date Name of Cemetery City and State of the Cemetary.
