The Glynn County cemeteries were compiled from a list of cemeteries that I have in my collection of data.  I did not compile this list, it was made several years ago, and some of these cemeteries may no longer be in existence. 

Also, the names of the cemeteries may not be what you or your ancestor's named it either.  I have changed some of the cemetery names, when possible, to reflect what the descendants or history, has called them, many I have named according to what burial records or funeral homes have named them.

Photos of tombstones have been linked to each individual listing on most of the cemeteries; some are overall plot photos.

I DO NOT upload my photos to Find-A-Grave and by no means is permission given by me to upload my transcriptions or my photos to said website.

Of course, I'm constantly finding my work uploaded by others who do not source where they obtained the materials (I format my work a certain way, therefore I can identify it when it is copy and pasted on another website).

Cemetery plot maps are being uploaded for some, not all, cemeteries.  Some of these cemeteries only had a few graves, in a straight row, so a plot map is not necessary.

 

 

In my personal collection I also have select funeral home records, which give more information on the families that are buried in Glynn County, and other areas.

Many folks that lived here were buried in the surrounding counties of Brantley, Wayne, McIntosh, Camden, and even in Ware.  Most people do not realize that Brantley County was formed in 1921, so the families that were once living in Wayne County before 1921, were located in Brantley County after 1921 even though they never moved.

Thanks to the efforts of Ruth N. Vicent, many burials for the surrounding counties have been compiled in one database, that she has given me for lookup use, and eventually we will be adding all of my listings.  One day, this may be available online for researchers, but permission must be obtained by other compilers before this is done.

Thanks to the efforts of the late Walter Kenneth Sylvester of Ware County, the Glynn County Genealogy & History website now has a listing of all known Brantley County Cemeteries!

Although Wayne County does not have a great project website for genealogy [a couple are in the making though], someone has put up a site that has, I believe, every cemetery in Wayne County, and a transcription available online.  Clicking below will take you to the online cemetery transcriptions.
