Outer Cape Cemeteries: The Stories They Tell

Program for Sunday, October 31, 2021

 Amy Whorf McGuiggan writes a monthly column about the Cape’s historic cemeteries for the Provincetown Independent. She will introduce us to several of them, sharing her research and a few of her favorite stories. We’ll discuss the current state of these sacred places and how more people can engage with them.  A longtime summer resident of Provincetown, McGuiggan has documented her Whorf family back to 1760. All but one generation are buried in Provincetown.
