Provincetown, Massachusetts, Cemetery Inscriptions


This compilation of Cape Cod records consists of complete transcriptions of about 4,000 gravestones from three of the four oldest cemeteries in Provincetown, Massachusetts, as well as a study of smallpox burials there. The inscriptions have been retained in lot groupings to aid researchers, and where stones were difficult to read they have been checked against vital records of the town for accuracy. “These three cemeteries have a total of over 900 lots and over 4000 burials and often span three generations of families. Each cemetery’s contents are recorded by lot numbers in a separate part of this volume and each part is indexed by names of persons, places and ships; all citations are to lot numbers. Lot maps of the three large cemeteries are also included for reference.”
