Cemetery History

Our Lady of Angels Cemetery was established in 1877 when Our Lady of Angels Parish bought 19 acres along Central Avenue just east of Colonie. In 1948, the parish bought more land to its present size.

Our Lady of Angels Parish was a German congregation that started in 1867, as an off-shoot from Holy Family Parish. The Parish continued until 2005 when it closed down due to low attendance. The cemetery remains under the care of the Diocese of Albany.

There is an estimated 4,500 to 5,000 burials in this cemetery.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
