Somebody once remarked: "The only certain fact of life is that we're going to die". In genealogy we not only want to know when our ancestors died but we also would like to know where they were buried and if their graves are still at the churchyard today. For that reason you will find overviews of churchyards in Ferwerderadeel on the next pages including pictures of many gravestones with the remark that for reasons of privacy only gravestones of persons born before the year 1900 are shown:
 Ferwerd 1831 - 2002
 Hallum 1831 - 2004
 Hogebeintum 1831 - 2000
 Marrum 1831 - 2004
 Westernijkerk 1926 - 2002
 Blija 1831 - 1913
