Federated States of Micronesia Cemetery Records
The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is a sovereign island nation located in the Western Pacific Ocean. It is comprised of four main states - Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, and Kosrae - and a number of smaller atolls and islands. The FSM has a rich cultural history that dates back thousands of years, and one important aspect is its cemetery records.
Micronesia cemetery records document the burial sites and funerary practices of the various communities that have inhabited the islands over the centuries. They provide valuable insights into the beliefs, traditions, and social structures of the FSM's indigenous peoples, and are an important resource for historians, anthropologists, and genealogists.
The cemetery records of the FSM are particularly notable for their diversity. Each state has its own unique funerary customs and burial practices, and these are reflected in the records. For example, the Yapese people traditionally bury their dead in elaborate stone tombs, while the Chuukese use large mounds of earth to mark their burial sites. The Pohnpeians often bury their dead in family plots that are passed down through generations, while the Kosraeans use specially built structures to house their dead.
Cemetery records published here were acquired from Federated States of Micronesia cemeteries, churches, municipalities, associations and genealogists specifically for family history and local history research.
