US Department of Veterans Affairs Nationwide Gravesite Locator

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has put on line a nationwide grave locator of veterans and their family members, known as the Nationwide Gravesite Locator. Sources for the information for private burials were collected for the purpose of furnishing the government grave markers.
Private burials prior to 1997 are not yet included.
