Burial Records Index
DeKalb History Center
This cemetery database is comprised of Franklin Garrett's cemetery records for DeKalb
County, Georgia. Mr. Garrett created these records in 1930 and 1931 by visiting cemeteries
within a 25 mile radius of Five Points in Atlanta and transcribing the headstones. The
original Garrett cemetery records can be found at the Atlanta History Center which is located in
the Buckhead area of Atlanta.
The DeKalb History Center thanks Mr. Garrett for allowing them to share his cemetery
records through this website. Special thanks also go to Shirley Brown of Stone Mountain
and Bill King of the Paideia School, both of whom performed many hours of data entry to
complete this database. DHC also thanks Mary West, who is fast becoming an
authority on the cemeteries of DeKalb.
