Published Transcriptions

Cemetery records often include birth, marriage, and death information. They sometimes have insignia or symbols that provide clues about military service, religion, or membership in a service or fraternal organization. Nearby markers may help identify children who died young or women who were not recorded in family or government documents.

The New Hampshire Historical Society has an extensive collection of cemetery records. Use the historical society’s Internet site for a catalog listing of this collection. In the search box you can type the name of the city or town plus the word cemetery. Some records have been microfilmed and are at the Family History Library. Two Family History Library microfilms, 15566 and 165996, contain some of these cemetery records with various authors, publishers, and computer numbers. Other collections include:

  • Goss, Mrs. Charles C. Colonial Gravestone Inscriptions in the State of New Hampshire: Published by the Historic Activities Committee of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of New Hampshire, From Collections Made by Committees From 1913 to 1942. (Dover, New Hampshire: National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of New Hampshire, 1942). (Family History Library book 974.2 V3g; film 823810 item 3.) It is indexed in:
  • Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, The New England Mission. Cemetery Records of New Hampshire. (Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1960). Names are alphabetically arranged within each cemetery listed. (Family History Library book 974.2 V3c; film 908584 item 2.)

A county-by-county list of cemetery record transcripts, and the book and film numbers to locate them at the Family History Library as of 1988, is:
