Reflective of Green-Wood’s long and venerable history of serving the public are voluminous archival records and original source holdings documenting its residents and operations. These records contain the day to day operations of the cemetery and serve to memorialize the people interred there, revealing a vast store of genealogical and historical information.

The varied cemetery records abound with genealogical charts, family trees, last wills and testaments, death certificates, burial orders, lot records, family correspondence, and affidavit records. These records are unique to Green-Wood Cemetery and are not to be found in any other repository in the country.
