Bio and Links
Bio Photo Just trying to track down my roots and help others on my journey.

I am a volunteer at the Historic Sacramento City Cemetery, and spend most of my time photographing it and the Masonic Lawn and Odd Fellows Lawn Cemeteries which are next door. The volunteers at the City Cemetery are in the process of entering all the cemetery records from various books into one searchable database. They are just starting out with the lot deeds and sales, and will move on to the burial locations as well as histories and photographs of the more notable residents. There were over 30,000 burials at the cemetery. The Cemetery used to have 50 acres, including the property where the Masonic Lawn and Odd Fellows Lawn now sits. So many of the burials were originally part of the City Cemetery are now apart of the other two. Also to add to the confusion, there are a few smaller cemeteries that reside within the City Cemetery. One of them being the Firemen's lot, which the Fire Dept. still maintains. Also during the great floods, the New Helvetia Cemetery was damaged from flood waters and many coffins floated up and away. The entire cemetery was relocated within the City Cemetery and some of the relocated people could not be identified. There were also mass burials from the Cholera epidemic. The project underway is a tremendous effort to organize the piles of old records and deeds. Please be patient if the volunteers can't give you much information on a person right away. It is not a simple thing to just pick up a book and find the name, there are many, many volumes of books spanning back over a century. And some are not in order by name.

Thanks for adding this, there are several people looking for his gave from Texas. However you have PFC, in front of his name. What does that mean? His Find A Grave # is 118505733. Ancestory.com now has the rights to link Find A Grave memorials and since the PFC is in front of it, it might be hard for other ancestor researchers to link his family.
Thanks

Thank you for the information. So sad that all the tier information is meaningless now.

Thank you for all the information. I had no idea! Yes, if you could put a picture of the memorial for the victims up for him I think that would be a great tribute.

Thanks again

Hi Sister!
Your work on new memorials is great. I can tell you have put a lot of effort into researching them. I really enjoyed reading about Virgil Edwin Earp. It's so exciting to share what you learn with people who have been looking for their ancestors.

Your sister,
Rose

That is funny that you mentioned Lincoln. I do ancestry.com and found out in the past year, my cousin told me, that Lincoln is a distant cousin. We have a grandfather in common. A great (7x) grandfather and for him the same grandfather(x2)...
