Ask a Genealogist: Looking for M.O.C.A. records at NEHGS.

In the book Soldiers, Sailors, and Patriots of the Revolutionary War - Maine by Carleton E. Fisher and Sue G. Fisher it references two ancestors with the abbreviation MOCA. How can I obtain a lookup from MOCA, and learn what these references mean?


M.O.C.A. stands for Maine Old Cemetery Association. This collection of microfilm appears in three series of county-by-county gravestone transcriptions throughout Maine. At NEHGS we have these available for researchers on the 4th floor [Call # F18.M346.1983]. There is also a microfiche titled M.O.C.A. Revolutionary War soldiers [Call # F18.M346.1986]. Some of the counties from this series have been published by Picton Press. If you cannot visit, you can hire NEHGS Research Services to search these microforms for you.  Research Services can be reached at 617-226-1233, or by email at
