FamilySearch added this wonderful collection of cemetery records on Dec 23, 2013! The records are not indexed but are sorted in alphabetical order so it's easy to look for your Maine Ancestor.
The cards contain names, location of the cemetery and others in a family. They also often also contain birth dates, death dates and relationships.
WeRelate that says that the records were kept at the Maine State Library in Augusta, Maine and were "compiled by the Maine Old Cemetery Association under the direction of Nathan Hale."
Thanks to Mr Hale and the team of folks that went out to these cemeteries for ensuring we have this source to review as we do genealogy research today!
