Abstract

The purpose of this project was to create and implement a cataloging system for Mount Auburn Cemetery to document the memorials within a region of the cemetery. Effective field practices, database forms, and mapping components have been produced to make cataloging as efficient as possible. The team has documented 500 memorials, but approximately 60,000 remain. Therefore, a training manual has been produced to facilitate the survey of the entire cemetery by Mount Auburn staff and interns.
