SCV Graves Registry
Welcome to the Sons of Confederate Veterans Confederate Graves Registry
This project is dedicated to the memory of George Ballentine, who was one of the first men to recognize the need for a comprehensive searchable database of Confederate Veteran grave sites: CGR
George started the first data collection in the Texas Division, and inspired others to join the team, but crossed over the river before he could finish his work. Others have picked up the colors, and the work continues.
To submit records to the database use this link:
SCV Confederate Grave Registration Form
Requires Adobe Reader 9.5 Please click the pop up in the top right hand corner if the form does not have fill able blanks
There is now a way to search for Women or Black Confederates in the CGR. Now an (F) following the surname for the women, and a (B) for the Black Confederates has been entered. A list can be pulled up by merely entering (F) or (B) in the surname cell of Veteran Search at

Graves Registry committee members have been advised that Open Office spreadsheet format is
not compatible with Excel spreadsheet format and should not be used to submit data to the CGR.
In conjunction with the Confederate Graves Registry Program, The Texas SCV has developed the Graves Survey Project. Anyone interested in learning a method for systematically gathering Confederate grave data to be included in the CGR can contact Rocky Sprott at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 806-930-1651 for further information and seminar details.
