What is in the Collection?

The collection consists of images of records from several cemeteries in Knox County, Maine for the years 1800 to 2007. The collection currently includes cemeteries from the Town of Thomaston.

Cemeteries begin keeping records as soon as they are opened. The purchase of a burial plot is a land transaction and is recorded with a deed. Cemetery records are kept as a permanent record of who was buried and usually who purchased the burial plot. The information in these records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
