Jersey index - I
This is Jerripedia's index to nearly 4,000 entries for Jersey graves on the commercial website Find A Grave.
The website, established in 1995, claims to be the 'world's largest gravesite collection' and contains millions of entries for graves around the world. These have all been added by registered contributors.
The idea is that researchers who have discovered graves of their ancestors add the available information to the site, with a photograph of the grave, wherever possible. Unfortunately the site seems to be dominated by people (mainly in the USA) who have made a hobby out of adding graves which have nothing to do with their family; the entries containing very little information other than the name of the grave's occupant and the cemetery where it is to be found. This information has clearly been drawn from other genealogy websites' burial records. We have encountered one contributor of records for 17th century graves in Jersey churchyards who has added over 100,000 records to Find A Grave over six years, and continues to add over 200 every week.
This has little or no value for researchers of Jersey families, but the records added by descendants, often accompanied by photographs, and with a potted history of their ancestors, are of infinitely greater value. We have produced this index to all the Jersey records on Find A Grave at the end of March 2018, for the 12 cemeteries with 12 or more records. We hope to update the index from time to time as the number of Jersey records on Find A Grave grows
