Nobleboro Historical Society
This program is sponsored by the Dunbar Cemetery Association of Nobleboro and the
Nobleboro Historical Society and will be held at the Nobleboro Historical Center.
|“Have Questions about Maine Cemetery Laws?”
Are you curious about the care Maine requires for veterans’ graves or about a person being buried
on their own property?
Helen Shaw, the legislative liaison for the Maine Old Cemetery Association (MOCA) and president of
the Maine Genealogical Society, will speak about the current Maine laws governing cemeteries and
Shaw moved from Chicago to Rockport in 2003 when she and her family returned to her husband's home
state. Her roots to Maine include an ancestor who was a minister in Whitefield in the mid-1700s.
Since arriving in Rockport, Helen has been elected to the Rockport Charter Commission and is currently
serving on the Camden-Rockport Pathways Committee and the Rockport Cemetery Committee. Additionally,
she is the Regent of the Lady Knox Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and is the
vice-president and secretary of the Old Broad Bay Family History Association.
The program will be a little over an hour long, handouts will be provided and attendees may ask
questions. Refreshments will be served.
