Downloadable cemetery and vital records data


Researching cemeteries is a unique undertaking. Some burials happen in active cemeteries with a business office and even these often have no internet website. Many burial grounds have been abandoned and it would be difficult to obtain any records.

The Town of Duxbury like all New England towns had its share of private tombs and backyard graves, but most of the unregulated burial spots were so long neglected they are scarcely more than legend now.Town of Duxbury, Massachusetts, U.S.A. website.

We want the easy stuff, the large spreadsheets easily understandable by machines, easy to incorporate onto this website. Unlike other websites with larger holdings, we do not hesitate to share what we acquire. We do not lock everything up behind a query-based search box, jealously guarding the precious data. Many cemeteries have supplied their data to such websites but it should all be free to everybody. Where the download is a Portable Document Format (.pdf) file intended for humans to read, we also provide an ABBYY FineReader 11 translation to a pipe-delimited .csv file. While .csv means Comma-separated variable, it is still called a .csv file when it is pipe-delimited, and we prefer this because so many data fields will have commas and quotation marks embedded in them.

Use this stuff, provide us with a link on your page. Thanks.
