Nantucket Cemeteries Inscription Project

The Nantucket Historical Association has launched a Nantucket Cemeteries Project in an effort to record the inscriptions of the island’s grave markers. The NHA inscription project has gathered epitaphs and condition information about many of the markers of Nantucket island, and created a database of information that allows searching across cemeteries. Gradually, more stones are being inventoried and maps are made, and will be made available.

As tombstones are inventoried, they are being entered into an online searchable database.
