CD: Massachusetts Cemetery Inscriptions, Volume 1 - HB Archives. This CD-ROM contains the following important collections: Epitaphs in the Old Burying-Ground at Deerfield, Massachusetts - C. Alice Baker and Emma L. Coleman (1924). Important data on the early settlers of Deerfield. One stone disappeared while these transcriptions were being made, and many others have, no doubt, been lost before and after. Epitaphs from Copp's Hill Burial Ground, Boston (Massachusetts) - Thomas Bridgeman (1851). Copp's Hill is one of three in the center of old Boston, and was the site of the town's 2nd cemetery which began in 1659. This volume contains a complete transcription of all the tombs and gravestones which were extant about 1850. Lexington Epitaphs: A Copy of Epitaphs in the Old Burying-Grounds of Lexington, Massachusetts - Francis H. Brown, M.D., 169 pp., map, index, 1905. This work contains verbatim transcriptions of the gravestones from two of the oldest cemeteries in Lexington, Massachusetts, the Old Burying-ground behind the Unitarian Church, and the Robbins Cemetery in the East Village. Epitaphs from Graveyards in Wellesley (formerly West Needham), North Natick, and Saint Mary's Churchyard in Newton Lower Falls, Massachusetts, with Genealogical and Biographical Notes - George Kuhn Clarke, LL.B., (1900). This important collection not only provides verbatim transcriptions, it also provides a wealth of additional data extracted from town and church records by the compiler. Gravestone Inscriptions and Records of Tomb Burials in the Granary Burying Ground, Boston, Massachusetts - Ogden Codman (1918). The Granary Burying-Ground was first established in 1660 beside the Commons, and was variously known as the "New Burying Ground," the "South Ground," and the "Common Ground," until its current name was adopted. More than six thousand deaths are noted here, including such notables as John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and Paul Revere. Epitaphs in Old Bridgewater, Massachusetts - Williams Latham (1882). Several dozen graveyards, large and small, are covered in this compilation. The verbatim transcriptions are numbered and keyed to diagrams for all the larger cemeteries. Likewise, the inscriptions for each of the larger cemeteries are preceded by a name index, and there is a surname index to the compilation as a whole. Southern Massachusetts Cemetery Collection, Volume 1 - Susan Salisbury (1995). Tombstone inscriptions from sixty-four cemeteries in fourteen towns are included in this large compilation. Every legible tombstone in every known cemetery in each town has been included, recorded in the order in which they appear in each graveyard.

Southern Massachusetts Cemetery Collection, Volume 2 - Susan Salisbury (1996). Tombstone inscriptions from seventy-two cemeteries in nine towns are included in this large compilation.

Epitaphs in the Old Burial Place, Dedham, Massachusetts - Rev. Carlos Slafter, A.M. This burial ground was established in the mid-1600s, and the earliest stone extant at the time they were recorded was from 1678.
