Massachusetts Cemetery Records
Massachusetts, one of the original 13 colonies of the United States, is a state rich in history and culture. Its cemetery records play a significant role in preserving the memory of those who have passed away and provide valuable information for genealogists and historians.
Cemeteries in Massachusetts can be traced back to the colonial era when families would bury their loved ones in private burial grounds on their own property. As the population grew and the demand for public burial places increased, cemeteries were established by local governments and religious organizations.
Massachusetts cemetery records play an important role in preserving the state's history and heritage. Through the study of burial practices and gravestone iconography, historians can gain insight into the beliefs and customs of earlier generations and better understand the social and cultural context in which they lived.
Cemetery records published here were acquired from Massachusetts cemeteries, churches, municipalities, associations and genealogists specifically for family history and local history research.
