York and Adams County, PA Cemetery Pictures

Harry Senft has taken over 282,811 pictures of of headstones, 334 cemeteries in York and Adams counties that are ALL posted online.

(Also,there are some in Cumberland Co., PA, Lancaster Co. PA, and one in Carroll County, MD.)

In conjunction with FamilyHart (aka Don & Jeanine Hartman), Custom Google Maps for each cemetery location have been produced so that the user can easily find the cemetery. An index of the cemeteries listed is also provided by name and by location. In addition, indexing of the actual cemetery picture files with links to the FamilysHart Online Databaseare being compiled. The FamilyHart Online Database contains over 930,000 linked family names, most of which have connections to York and Adams counties. This family database is the most comprehensive and complete listing of York and Adams County names on the Internet. It grows by about 1,000 names per week, and is updated online quarterly.

The York County Cemeteries USGenWeb site is a relatively comprehensive site for finding transcriptions and pictures of Tombstones in York County. Many of Harry Senft's pictures (and those of others) are posted here and are indexed by cemetery. Also found here are transcriptions of many cemeteries (some complete and many incomplete.) These transcriptions are valuable as they often include stones that are no longer readable and may not show up on photo images. Also many cemeteries only have transcriptions. Neither this site or the FamilyHart site are all inclusive for burials in York County but used together they provide the most comprehensive record of burials in the county found online.
There are over 345 different cemeteries in the county. Finding the right cemetery is compounded by the fact that many cemeteries have changed names over the years and are now known by different names. A comprehensive list of cemeteries can be found at York County Cemeteries and Locations. This link does not have burials listed but is the most complete listing of all the cemeteries in York County.

Note: All pictures from the web links below must have permission to post them on find a grave.

For all those who used my pictures without my permission, please document them or remove them and post no more.

I have found hundreds of my personal undocumented photos copied on FAG and other genealogy sites.

Some members get atta boys for posting my pictures by other members on their profile page without asking for my permission to post them; they have no respect to at least to take the time to credit the person who took them. This is a copyright infringement.

They know who they are; and if they don't stop, I will start publicly posting their names so they can get the fan mail they really deserve. Because of this kind of copyright abuse, I may stop granting permission altogether. They are my personal property and not public domain.

Even when using public domain photo's, they should be documented to protect FAG from possible lawsuits.

Most members have been real respectful and documented my photos that were posted without my permission. To them, I let them keep the photo they posted, unless I have a better photo that I retook.

I hope FAG members understand that taken these photos took over 10 years of hard work, and this is not all about me. I done this for preserving history for the generations to come and to help this generations to find their family members.

When I first stated taken these photos I was only concern about getting the data on the headstone. After years past I started being more concerned about picture quality. There were times I went back and forth many times to cemeteries to get better quality photos and re-done the whole cemetery for that reason.

I seen some members get upset over the dumbest things including myself, we should all work together and be respectful to one other, even when we disagree with each other. Bottom line, we should all be in this together for the future generations to come.

Hi I went to change my Hollinger family to Mt Airy United meth but it looks like Mt Airy and Mt Airy United Meth are the same cemetery on the web anyway.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for getting the photo of my cousin's grave marker. His mother no longer lives in PA, and she really wanted a photo of it. I really appreciate you taking the time to get the picture for her.

Thanks again,
