Connecticut and New York Cemetery Records

Hale Collection has just reached it's first milestone since it's launch, just over a year ago. We have now transcribed and published over one hundred Connecticut cemetery records from the Charles R. Hale Collection of Cemetery Inscriptions, most of which are not found anywhere else on the Internet. Hale Collection has also linked to many other Hale Collection Cemetery Records in an effort to make this resource as complete as possible.

The New Horizons Genealogy website is now reaching it's first milestone in transcribing the early (pre 1940) New York Cemetery Records. New Horizons Genealogy now has about one hundred New York Cemetery Records, transcribed and published to the Internet, and many of these cemetery records are now found anywhere else on the Internet. We also have a section of the website devoted to Revolutionary Soldiers Buried in New York State. Access is free and there are no subscription fees.

The Charles R. Hale Collection Numbering System

The Charles R. Hale Collection of Connecticut Cemetery Inscriptions, uses it's own unique numbering system. If you understand how this numbering system works, it can save you a lot of frustration. In our website we use this numbering system.

Sample Hale Collection Cemetery Number


The first digit (7) is the county number. The Connecticut county numbers for the Charles R. Hale Collection are as follows.

1. Hartford County
2. New haven County
3. New London County
4. Fairfield County
5. Windham County
6. Litchfield County
7. Middlesex County
8. Tolland County

In this example the county happens to be Middlesex County.

The second and third digits (12) is the town number. For each county the first town number reverts back to one. The town numbers for each county are some what, but not necessarily in alphabetical order. In this Example the second and third digits (12) happens to be Old Saybrook.

The number after the hyphen (1) which may be one or two digits, is the cemetery number. For each town the cemetery number always reverts back to the number one. In this example cemetery number one happens to be the number for the Cypress Cemetery.

In summery the cemetery number 712-1 tells us that this is Cypress Cemetery, located in the town of Old Saybrook, Middlesex County, Connecticut.

At we are indexing all our cemetery records using this numbering system.

Welcome and Introduction

First I want to take a minute to introduce myself. I have been transcribing and copying genealogy records full time now for about 3 years, and have been working on my own genealogy research for over 10 years. I moved to the Mohawk Valley region of New York State about a year and a half age so I could get closer to the real colonial American history, and have easier access to it's recorded history. Colonial American history is where my heart is.

New Horizons Genealogy was founded on the idea that we want to help you take your genealogy research to a new horizon, that was the idea on which our name came from. We want to bring to you the older and more overlooked records not often found on the larger subscription based genealogy websites. Some of our record collections include, Colonial and State Census Records, Census Record Mortality Schedules, 1847-1849 New York State Vital Records, Barbour Collection of Connecticut Vital Records, Hale Collection of Connecticut Cemetery Inscriptions, New York State Cemetery Records, New York State Revolutionary War Soldier Burials , and 1840 Census of Pensioners that are currently inter-filed in with the Colonial and State Census Records. Our records span across three websites, New Horizons Genealogy, Hale Collection of Connecticut Cemetery Inscriptions and Mortality Schedules.

While we can't transcribe every record to make our collections complete, we fill in the gaps by linking to records transcribed by other transcribers. This way we can also attempt to get an inventory of what has been transcribed and not be duplicating the hard work of others. If you are a transcriber and have work you would like us to like to please add a link to our website in your website either on the home page or in a links page and email us and we will add a link to your transcribed records. If you were a person whom transcribed records for the genweb project and took them down for one reason or another and would like to post them on our website just send us the file and we would be happy to post them on our website. Please be advised we adhere to and all records we post are subject to the Digital Millennium Copywrite Act (DMCA).

Our websites are 100% free and here for your enjoyment. Please contact me with any comments and/or suggestions you may have concerning our websites.
