1996 Tombstone Transcriptions. Most of the cemeteries in Vilas County were transcribed in 1996 by Rosamond Vannoy who published two Volumes of "CEMETERIES OF VILAS COUNTY WISCONSIN". This book does not include unmarked graves, only tombstone transcriptions.

NEW TRANSCRIPTIONS: Currently there are volunteers who are working on transcribing and/or photographing cemeteries in Vilas County. The Eagle River Cemetery and the Phelps Cemetery have been completed and are available on this site by clicking on the cemetery name below.

WIGenWeb Tombstone Photo Archives Project: Over 160,000 Photos.
This is a state-wide project. The photos are contributed by volunteers but do not necessarily include all the tombstones in any given cemetery. I have provided a link by each Vilas Cemetery name [Photo Archives} when they have been included in this project. Or visit the WIGENWeb Tombstone Project's Vilas Page.
