Waukesha County Wisconsin Genealogy


This active cemetery is located between Prairie Avenue and West Avenue at Luke Avenue, Waukesha City, Section 10, Waukesha Township.

There are two maps available online. The better one (because it gives more information) is a link off the Prairie Home Cemetery website.

The other site is located as a link from the city website. This site interment dates, but not birth and death dates. From this site you can get the funeral home information and any special notes that may have been made about the burial. The link is here at the bottom of the page:Prairie Home Cemetery City Link.


History on Prairie Home can be found on the first page of the cemetery.

Cemetery Records

There are cemetery records 1841 to date, but there are some earlier burials with no records. There is a chart of the cemetery and records are available to the public for research, Monday-Friday for a fee. The cemetery charges an in person fee for the first half hour of research. For research that takes over a half hour, a total fee is usual. Mail requests will be answered, but you must send a self addressed stamped envelope for your reply. If more than a few names are requested by mail, the fee is required in advance.
