Depending on the area and the date of death, you might not find anything. In some places they recycle the plots after about 70 years. What else can you do in areas that have been heavily populated for over 2000 years?

I'm looking to find out where my great great grandmother is buried.
Lucia Agozzino Murana from Vicari, Italy
She did not stay in the u.s. With my great great grandfather, but her name is on the ss Liguria in 1904 to New Orleans with my great grandfather giuseppe Murana. I'm curious to know where she ended up. She did not stay in the u.s.

It says she was 43 when she was on the ss Liguria in 1904 but I don't know how accurate that is

Have you tried Find-A-Grave website? They do have some international cemeteries in their database. :D
