York and Adams County, PA Cemetery Pictures

Harry Senft has taken over 274,225 pictures of of headstones, 319 cemeteries in York and Adams counties that are ALL posted online.
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 FamilyHart Online Databaseare being compiled. The FamilyHart Online Database contains over 798,247 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.

The purpose of the links is to help family members find their loved ones, for their own information and to put families together.

There are many people who have been archiving my pictures for me, of which I've put in hundreds of hours to go out to these cemeteries and take these pictures.

There is much hard work that has been done to record the gravesites and post them online.

RE: Edwin and Lillie Lease and Franklin Lau
It's a small world! I am telling my husband more about his family than he ever knew! His own father has no idea who his g/gpa was and doesn't care to know. It baffles me, but then I am really into knowing who my ancestors were.

RE: Edwin and Lillie Lease and Franklin Lau
Thank-you again for all the photos. My husband's grandmother was Nettie Lau who married Washington Pierce Sunday. Their son, Charles Daniel, is my husband's father. We were just in York last weekend to celebrate Charles and his twin's 90 b/day! They did a write-up on the two in the York Dispatch. Who does your line go through?

Thank-you so much for the pictures you took for me. In the last couple of weeks you have fulfilled a bunch of requests for me. Are you working on the same bunch as me? I see there are over a hundred requests for that cemetery and yet you chose mine. I really appreciate it!

Thanks! Clears it up once and for all just HOW those names are spelled on the markers. Have changed Nancy's to reflect the marker photo.

Thank-you for the photo of this stone! And so quick! I see the e-mail was sent early this morning. Either my mail service is slow or you had a rather sleepless night! Thanks again.

Hello Harry,
I came across a newspaper article concerning Orpha (Messinger)Snyder who after her first husband died in a horrible truck accident, married pvt. Curvin Hess. Orpha, Richard, Faye and Carolyn died in a house fire/ explosion in the morning on 27 Feb 1945. The F.A.G memorial page has 1941 listed as their death date. So many tragedies in this particular family, so sad. The Snyder line comes from my mother side.

Thank You!

Thank you so much for taking the picture of Levenia's headstone! As much as it's an awesome addition to the family tree I'm putting together, Pennsylvania was just a little too far of a trip for a headstone picture!

Again THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
