The Association for Gravestone Studies

The Association for Gravestone Studies (AGS) was founded in 1977 for the purpose of furthering the study and preservation of gravestones. AGS is an international organization with an interest in gravemarkers of all periods and styles. Through its publications, conferences, workshops and exhibits, AGS promotes the study of gravestones from historical and artistic perspectives, expands public awareness of the significance of historic gravemarkers, and encourages individuals and groups to record and preserve gravestones. At every opportunity, AGS cooperates with groups that have similar interests.

Civil War Virtual Cemetery

Vermont in the Civil War is a grassroots project documenting the story of the State's contributions to the war, and what happened to the participants during and after the war. For the purposes of this project, anyone who was born or died in Vermont, regardless of where they served, and anyone who served in a Vermont unit, regardless of where they were born, we consider a Vermonter.

Descendants of the Green Mountain Boys

As descendants of The Green Mountain Boys, we feel fortunate to know our lineage from a brave and resolute group of early New England settlers and militia men, who through a long and ultimately successful land dispute with New York, helped form the Independent Republic of Vermont. Although small in number, The Green Mountain Boys also materially assisted the cause of America’s fight for Independence in the Revolutionary War. Our purpose is twofold: to honor our ancestors and their contributions, and to continue to help identify these remarkable and sometimes forgotten Patriots.

Find A Grave

Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Index to Known Cemetery Listings in Vermont

Acknowledgments to the Fifth Edition: We are pleased to honor the memory of Joann H. Nichols with the fifth edition of Index to Known Cemetery Listings in Vermont. Joann started this project in 1976 and updated it in 1982. Volunteers at the Vermont Historical Society have been updating it ever since. Once again, Bob Murphy, like Joann Nichols, a former president of the Genealogical Society of Vermont, has undertaken the effort to bring this listing up-to-date so that genealogists working in the State of Vermont will have knowledge of what cemeteries in our state have been inventoried. Although there is now a wealth of information online, especially at FindAGrave.com and Interment.net, it is still useful to have a printed compilation of cemetery listings because many of these online indexes are not comprehensive.

Preservation Burlington

Preservation Burlington is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and protect the historic architecture and livability of Burlington through education and advocacy. Preservation Burlington was founded in 1998 by local residents and preservationists. Over the past decade our accomplishments include: preserving the Varney House at 76 Cherry Street, Henry’s Diner, and the Captain White House; passing the “four unrelated adult” ordinance to help bring families back to historic neighborhoods in the core of the city; and recognizing a variety of local projects and individuals with yearly preservation awards.

The 251 Club Of Vermont

The 251 Club was first suggested by Dr. Arthur W. Peach in the Summer 1954 issue of Vermont Life Magazine. A poet, professor, writer, and historian, effusive about all things Vermont, Dr. Peach was welcomed to the magazine's advisory board in its third issue (1947). Given the wide circulation of Vermont Life Magazine, the response from within and outside of Vermont's borders was remarkable. A new batch of Vermont maps had to be printed to meet the growing demand while letters from prospective club members rolled in. Over a half-century later, the quest to visit Vermont's 246 "organized" towns and cities, as well as its five "unorganized" towns (Averill, Ferdinand, Glastenbury, Lewis, and Somerset) continues.
