Church Record Sunday: Locating Roman Catholic Cemetery Records, New Haven County

  I recently had a question posed to me that I didn't know the answer to... The individual wondered how to figure out who "owned" a Roman Catholic cemetery in New Haven County when it didn't appear to be associated to a church. I tried to use the old trick of cemetery name = parish name. It didn't work. So I did a little digging on my own.
  It turns out the cemeteries - even the old ones - are managed by the Catholic Cemeteries Association of the Archdiocese of Hartford. A quick visit to the website will give you the name of the cemetery's manager and an associated phone number. Definitely a lot simpler process than what I had suspected.
