This database contains burial cards recording details on people interred in the Albany Rural Cemetery.
Historical Background
The typewritten cards contained in this database catalog all internments at the Albany Rural Cemetery in Menands, New York. The cemetery was incorporated in 1841 in response to two needs. As church burial grounds filled, a city cemetery was opened in the 1780s. When this proved inadequate, another municipal cemetery was established in 1801, and many of those previously interred at the old cemetery were moved to this site. However, because of flooding problems at the 1801 site, Albany Rural Cemetery was created, and bodies were moved again from the 1801 cemetery to be reinterred at the present site.
What You May Find in the Records
Though the cards in this database record burials in the Albany Rural Cemetery, many feature more than just details about interment; they often contain birth information and other important genealogical data, such as
  • name
  • place of birth
  • place of death
  • late residence
  • date of death
  • date of interment
  • cause of death
  • age
  • lot details
  • family relationships
Information was sometimes recorded on the back of the cards as well, so if you find an ancestor, you will want to use the arrow keys to check both sides. If there were no details recorded on the back of the card, it was not scanned and will not be included here.
