A visit to the Holyhood Cemetery ...

Introduction ...

Since our focus is on geography, we don't have burial or interment information. Nor do we have any contact information for the Holyhood Cemetery. For information of that nature, we suggest the Find-A-Grave<1> website: The Holyhood Cemetery (FAG ID #91119)

In addition, the Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) has a MACRIS<2> database entry for the Holyhood Cemetery (MACRIS ID #BKL.802). Once on the MACRIS page, look for the dark blue INV icon on the line 'Inventory Number: BKL.802'. Click on this link to open a PDF document with more detailed information contained on scanned documents.

We have organized the cemeteries in our Gazetteer based on a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. Without specifying the cemeteries involved, we found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site. Should you find yourself in the same situation, we hope that our Gazetteer helps you discover your lost ancestor.

Footnotes ...

<1>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<2>The Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) has created and maintains a database of historic properties that is called MACRIS (for the Massachusetts Cultural Resource Information System). More information about the MHC and MACRIS can be found on their website: mhc-macris.net.
<3>If you're interested in how the shape of Massachusetts' counties, including Norfolk, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- ) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point at the Holyhood Cemetery. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.3204, Longitude: -71.1670    
<5>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
