Discover & contribute funeral programs, death certificates, and burial records.

Historic African-American burial grounds continue to face neglect and destruction leaving descendants unable to locate the final resting places of their ancestors.

This poses a threat to advancing Black family history discovery as cemeteries provide key genealogical information needed to trace family origins. 

Black Cemeteries Matter. That’s why we’re building the first app specifically dedicated to the preservation of Black cemeteries.

This easy-to-use app will allow family historians, genealogists, community researchers, and academics to work together to document and preserve burial sites.
