California Cemetery Records Research Guide

Do you need to get information from California cemetery records? If so, this is a task that is relatively easy, and it will not cost you a whole lot of money.

Yes, there probably will be a fee, but it will be minimal, to cover administrative costs at the cemetery.

California cemetery records contain a wealth of information about your ancestors from the state, and they can lead you to even more ancestors that you may not have even known about.

If you are trying to create a family tree, this is an excellent way to gather a lot of the information you are going to need for your research.

California Cemetery and gravestone inscriptions are a rich source of information for family historians. For Definitions of all Cemetery Terms See Symbols on Gravestones and Their Interpretations

California, Mortuary and Cemetery Records, 1801-1932 is a collection of Northern California burial and death records from 1800-1900. The records come from four different books that cover both Northern California in general and San Francisco, El Dorado, and Tehama County cemeteries.

California Cemetery Inscription Sources database contains the cemetery inscription sources for the state of California. Organized by county and cemetery name, it provides the researcher an invaluable tool in finding headstone inscriptions when travel to the cemetery is not possible.

Web: California, Find A Grave Index, 1775-2011 database contains an index to cemetery and final disposition details posted on Find a Grave. Find a Grave provides users a virtual cemetery experience, with images of grave markers from around the world, as well as photos, biographies, and other details uploaded by volunteers.

Be Prepared for a Lot of Work

When you are putting together a family tree using California cemetery records and other documents, you can expect to put a lot of work into your project. But, unlike other jobs, this is not really going to seem like work.

Once you begin digging into the California cemetery records, you will probably find that the information is so fascinating that your project is not work, but a labor of love that is fun to work on.

Using California cemetery records is a good way to learn a lot about your ancestors. Of course, these are not the only records you are going to be using, but California cemetery records are an excellent place to start.

What Can You Learn?

California cemetery records hold a lot of important information that is going to be vital to your research. For example, if you want to know how an ancestor died, you can usually find out from California cemetery records.

This is important to know, and you may even find that there is a family history of a certain health issue. Learning this from cemetery records may not only help your research, but it could end up saving your life, or the life of one of your loved ones.

Other things you can learn from California cemetery records include the name of the attending physician at the time of death, names of the deceased’s family members, location of death, and more.

Research In California Cemetery Records

Printed secondary sources of transcribed cemeteries exist for most California counties. The California State Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) has collected hundreds of such records.

Transcripts are housed both at the national DAR (see page 13) and with some local chapters and libraries. They are also available on microfilm through the FHL and the Sutro Library in San Francisco .

A complete set of the DAR records (more than 180 volumes) is also in the California Room of the California State Library. Included in this collection are census, newspaper, cemetery, court, Bible, and family records.

Most cemeteries previously located in San Francisco were “moved” out of the city in the 1930s to South San Francisco and Coloma in San Mateo County, for example.
