The mission of the Arkansas Gravestones Project is to capture and archive digital images of our ancestors’ gravestones. As decades pass the inscriptions on many gravestones are becoming difficult, if not impossible, to read. These archived images are one means of preserving these important records and simultaneously assist family history researchers who use this valuable, free, information-rich resource.
The Arkansas Gravestones Project is a privately sponsored, non-commercial, non profit, educational site, the success of which depends on the activities of many volunteers and other individuals who contribute photographs to be archived.
We are seeking volunteers to take and upload digital photos of gravestones in many Arkansas counties. If you are interested in becoming involved in this rewarding activity, please contact the state coordinator. (contact us)

ACCESS VETERANS' AND FAMOUS PERSON'S RECORDS: All records for veterans and famous persons include the word "Veteran" or "Famous" in the surname field.
CEMETERY NOT LISTED? If the name of a cemetery is not included in the list for a particular county, select “Cemetery Currently Not Listed” from your county's list. Then, insert the name of the cemetery in the “Comments to be Posted” box after uploading your photograph.
DUPLICATE PHOTOGRAPHS: Duplicate submissions of photographs will undoubtedly occur as the web site grows and as additional people become involved in the activity. A member of the administrative team for the web site will consolidate the biographical information submitted in duplicate records, and select the photograph with the best clarity and composition for placement on the website.
