History

Bakersfield National Cemetery was established in 2008 when the US Department of Veterans Affairs acquired 500 acres from the Tejon Ranch Company. It hosted its first cremated remains on July 1, 2009, and first casket burial on July 2.

The cemetery is located on a portion of land that had once been used by the short-lived U.S. Army Camel Corps that was based in nearby Fort Tejon from 1857 to 1863.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
