Snyder County Cemeteries

Grave of Pennsylvania Governor Simon Snyder, Sharon Lutheran Church Cemetery, Selinsgrove, PA (6K)
Governor Simon Snyder
Selinsgrove, PA

To access tombstone transcriptions for Snyder County, you must access two different sites:

  1. Go to the Snyder County PAGenWeb Archives and use the search engine to find your surname of interest. The returns will be from a text file transcription of George Wagenseller's Snyder County Tombstone Inscriptions. This resource records many inscriptions from stones now lost and records burials through 1899. There are a number of errors and omissions. Because these files are transcriptions of a published work now in the public domain, they belong more properly in the archives than on this website.
  2. Use the table below to access the Finsterbush updates to Wagenseller's work. Click on the cemetery name and you'll be taken to a text file which corrects some errors and adds burials after 1899. As this is a massive undertaking presently in process, some of the larger cemeteries do not yet have text files linked to them.

Table of Cemeteries

  1. Column 1: All known cemeteries or burial sites are listed by civil division, as several cemeteries or burial sites are known by several aliases, which are listed, rendering alphabetization less than useful for the researcher.
  2. Column 2: The United States Geological Survey topographical maps are the best maps to use in locating a cemetery. The seven-and-one-half-minute quadrangle maps are listed with each cemetery so the researcher may consult or order the map of interest.
  3. Column 3: The Global Positioning System (GPS) uses geosynchronous satellites to help us earthbound folks locate anything on the planet using a GPS receiver. To read more about GPS to locate cemeteries, check the informative website at the USGeoGen Project®. I personally visited each cemetery or burial site with coordinates below with my Magellan GPS 315 receiver and two-minute dampening time. Coordinates are DD:MM:SS (degree, minute, second) using WGS-84 Datum, latitude north, longitude west. I'm in the process of redoing the coordinates to conform to DD:MM.MMM (Garmin) format.
  4. Clicking on Cemetery Name: This takes you to the exclusive Finsterbush update of Wagenseller's transcription project. Names are listed alphabetically by surname or initial, followed by given names, date of birth where available, date of death, and age at death if available. Items in brackets [] contain relationship information as found in the inscription. Bracketed items at the end of a listing are notes by the transcriber. A listing completely bracketed means the listing is found in Wagenseller, but not in the field when the transcription was made, meaning the tombstone is vandalized, illegible, fallen and covered with sod or removed.
