In the 1930′s and 1940′s, the workers of the Works Progress Administration (now called the Works Projects Administration) set out to record burial information for cemeteries across the state. These records are provided online by the NC State Archives and State Library of NC; visit their website to view the PDF file. You can learn more about the compilation work to put these records together on the NC Miscellany blog.
In order to make the records easier for you to navigate, we have provided an all-name index to the Alexander County burials included in the WPA records. The index includes approximately 2,500 names.
