The Uintah County Cemetery Project is a joint effort of twenty-nine cemeteries both large and small--and now their maps are all on NAMES IN STONE!
Spread across a 45-mile radius throughout the county, these twenty-nine cemeteries are all part of the Uintah County Cemetery District. Combined, the cemeteries hold a total of 39,742 graves and currently have 11,001 deceased records.
Eleven of the cemeteries are managed cemeteries (Class A), with burials ranging from one a year to three a week. The other eighteen cemeteries are family cemeteries that are scattered throughout the county, varying from a cemetery with one grave to a cemetery in the Dinosaur National Monument!

Several years ago, the director of the Cemetery District, Evan Baker, and Doris Burton, the director of the Uintah County Regional History Center, decided they wanted to develop a program that would better manage their cemetery records and help visitors who were looking for family and graves.
That's when they discovered Gateway Mapping's Spatial GENERATIONS. Spatial GENERATIONS met all their needs--and the company was looking ahead to putting cemetery maps on the internet, which was exactly what they wanted.
Ellen Kiever, who runs the cemetery program for the District, says, "GENERATIONS improves every time I receive an update of the program. I am able to print maps for patrons and help them with directions to their location. It is an easy program to use and very user friendly. With the most recent update, everyone is using the color version of the map."
"Our county officials are pleased with the progress that we have made with our Cemetery Program. It is a benefit to them, and I have encouraged other counties to come look at our program. Because of the work that has been completed, we have a way to double check our records, making sure that we have our graves placed correctly."
She continues, "Now with NAMES IN STONE, we will be able to search for the information online. It will only be necessary for me to have the program on my computer with another one at the cemetery."
"We are so appreciative of this action finally coming our way! We want to thank all of the staff at Gateway Mapping. They are wonderful to work with--Neal is a Godsend to me when I call with a problem! Thank you to everyone."
