Once an idea in the 1990s, 2004 marked the year the National Cemetery Administration’s (NCA) Nationwide Gravesite Locator (NGL) was made available. The NGL was designed to search for a compilation of digitized records and burial locations of veterans and their family members.
Provided here is the NGL for veterans buried in New York. This database is for family members of deceased veterans. This database is also helpful for genealogists looking for records as well as clues that can lead them to other records.
Family members and researchers can search for names on this page, which will net results exclusively from New York State from the NGL database.
