How to Locate the Graves of Family Members in Estonia

If you're like me and researching your family history, and unable to visit Estonia as often as you'd like, online resources are the way to go. Thanks to my cousin I discovered a new website today which enables you to gain access to important family records. The Haudi Kalmistute Register is the online cemetery portal of Estonia that offers a quick and easy way to locate family graves.

To complete a search, all you need to do is enter the first and last name of the person you would like to find at the top right hand corner of the screen, and a record will appear.

Please note that not every cemetery in Estonia is linked up to the portal at present but I'm sure that will be rectified in time.

The website can be found at:
