2010 - 2014: Digitizing the Cemetery Cards Collection

Committee: 
Collection Committee
Project Time Frame: 
March 27, 2010 - December 31, 2013

In the 1970s there was an extensive project to record cemetery layout and grave information on a set of (thousands of) index cards.

This year, 2010, we are digitizing the collection and putting it online as a finding aid on the BHS site. See the collection page for periodic updates on the progress of the project, and to try out the search tool or browse the collection.

This project should be very valuable for genealogists, families researching ancestors from Bowdoinham, or anyone interested in historic family data in the form of cemetery records.
