maine cemetery records

Maine is a state located in the northeastern region of the United States, known for its rocky coastline, picturesque lighthouses, and quaint fishing villages. It is also home to many historic cemeteries that provide a wealth of information for genealogists and historians alike.

Maine cemetery records are an important resource for those researching their family history. These records can provide valuable information about the deceased, including their date of birth and death, their occupation, and their family relationships. They can also reveal interesting details about the social and cultural history of Maine, such as the prevalence of certain diseases or the customs and beliefs surrounding death and burial.

In addition to traditional cemetery records, Maine also has a unique tradition of creating "memory" stones. These stones, also known as "mourning" or "grief" stones, were often placed in cemeteries to commemorate loved ones who had died. They were typically carved with symbols and inscriptions that reflected the individual's personality, interests, or occupation. Today, these stones are an interesting and valuable resource for those studying Maine's cultural history.

Cemetery records published here were acquired from Maine cemeteries, churches, municipalities, associations and genealogists specifically for family history and local history research.

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.
