The Black Heritage Cemeteries Team Page is a "work in progress." - - Feel free to join in!
Or if you have questions or need more info, contact the team leader, Denise Jarrett.



The purpose of the Black Heritage Cemeteries Team is to work together and communicate in one place everything related to African American Cemeteries. The hope is that other researchers, like you, will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that connect, cross or intersect by documenting thier burial information.
We aim to:

  1. Create a meaningful bio for each profile so that it accurately represents a person's life
  2. Connect all African American profiles on WikiTree
  3. Build Cemetery Categories for African American Cemeteries.
  4. Build corresponding spacepages for the newly built cemetery or any cemetery that does not have one.
