During the 19th century, Georgetown played an important role in commercial and social activities, and for a time it competed for prominence with its neighbors-the City of Washington and Alexandria. Newspapers printed in Georgetown covered commercial and social activities for both sides of the Potomac River, government activities in the City of Washington, and tidbits of foreign news. Perhaps surprisingly, editors of Georgetown newspapers often subscribed to newspapers from cities up and down the eastern seaboard of the United States, and routinely inserted marriage and death notices they deeme...

In addition to early records of interment (1855-1874) and routine certificates of death (1874 to the present), the District of Columbia maintained a somewhat unique type of death record, called "foreign deaths," as indexed here. Perhaps a misleading title-the records were kept for instances where the remains were handled by a District of Columbia undertaker or the remains were in other ways associated with a District of Columbia burying ground. A "foreign" death record typically shows the name of deceased, age, race, color, place of death, date of interment and undertaker in ch... View more info

It was not uncommon for remains of the dead to be moved-once, twice, or even several times! The remains of children were moved to join the burial place of their families; notable figures were often buried were they died, then moved to their long-term residence or place of birth; and many graves were moved when their original burial site was abandoned, condemned, or disturbed. The practice of moving remains but leaving monuments added to the challenge for researchers. Monuments are expensive to move and reset, so they were frequently discarded.
