Massachusetts Cemetery Records
When most of us think of states that have old cemeteries that need a lot of attention, we think of the original 13 colonies. A state like Massachusetts has burial sites that date back hundreds of years, but you can still find accurate and up to date records here. If you are searching for Massachusetts cemetery records, the best place to look is with each individual cemetery, but if you aren't sure what area your loved one is interred in, the following organizations may help.
The highly respected Massachusetts Cemetery Association is a group that helps to maintain the look of burial sites across the state and they also educate the public about proper maintenance, history and other important aspects of cemeteries. The Massachusetts Funeral Directors Association may be able to get your search started on the right foot by helping you figure out what area of the state your loved one is located in.
There is also a pair of important military burial sites in this state, as well. The first is the state national cemetery located in Bourne. This site features over 46,000 members interred. The other is located in Ayer and is one of the oldest in the country.
