The Maine Catholic Cemetery Committee, with the support of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland, has developed a user-friendly searchable database to locate a loved one buried in one of the 65 Catholic cemeteries in the diocese or to research genealogy.
Information is limited for security reasons, such as identity theft, but the database has all of the basic information. You can even download a map of the cemetery, print it and take it with you to the cemetery to help locate lots.
To access the database, go to Genealogy on the Portland Diocese website. Follow the link to search cemeteries. When the pop-up menu appears, choose from the list of cemeteries. Enter the last name of the deceased. A list will appear of all those buried in the cemetery with the last name, first name and date of death to help narrow your search. Click on the person you are looking for and the information will pop up. Older burials (prior to 1953) may have less information because complete records were not kept prior to that year. If you have information on an individual who was buried prior to that date and you would like to share it, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure that any information you forward is accurate and factual.
Many people ask about planting flowers, shrubs and trees at Mount Pleasant Catholic Cemetery. Our guidelines are posted at the entrance of the cemetery. Your cooperation with our guidelines will help keep our cemetery beautiful and dignified. If you have any questions, kindly contact Gene Gagnon at the cemetery office at 947-4322.
