Tombstone Tuesday: Wethersfield Historic Burying Ground Project
The Wethersfield Historic Burying Ground Digitization Project provides a new way to trace your ancestors buried in Wethersfield's oldest cemetery. The Wethersfield Burying Ground was established in 1638 and has been expanded as recently as 2004. Thanks to the work of Allison Golomb, an interactive map of the grounds and an index of burials has been placed online. Click on "interactive map" and you'll be able to search the cemetery. Results returned will include the name, date of death, a photo of the tombstone, inscriptions, and a map. If you need more information about the full cemetery, you can visit the history section. Good luck with research!
