Tombstones may have symbols or insignias indicating military service and social or religious affiliations. It is important to look at surrounding tombstones because family members may also be buried nearby. The following websites have some cemetery listings for Nevada State.

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) collection contains inscriptions from some Nevada cemeteries (see [[Nevada Genealogy]]). The Nevada Historical Society and several county libraries have collected mortuary records that date back to the 1870's.  === Family History Library Collection ===
