The Minnesota Genealogical Society's Cemetery Project is a compilation of the names and sites of all cemeteries in Minnesota, indicating which have been transcribed and where the transcription can be located. Many cemetery records have been published in the Minnesota Genealogist, the quarterly publication of that society. Several regional groups have published records of their local cemeteries. See also Wiley R. Pope, Minnesota Cemeteries in Print: A Bibliography of Minnesota Published Cemetery Inscriptions, and Burials, etc. (St. Paul: Minnesota Family Trees, 1988), Minnesota Historical Society Research Center for the WPA papers for cemeteries in Minnesota, and Wiley R. Pope, Minnesota Cemetery Locations (St. Paul: Minnesota Family Trees, 1988).
