Upon a hill overlooking the town of Julian, a cemetery that has been here since 1870 and is still taking burials today.

It is a beautiful place to be quiet and peaceful. You can look out and see the changing colors of the leaves (and also have the leaves fall on you).

You can hear the "clop clop" of the horse-drawn carriage on the street below.

It makes a this California girl wonder if this is what it's like in New England.

This is a place full of history and more than likely some ghosts too!!

Now the bells from the church ring in the song of joyous exclamation that echoes through the hills.

The peace is broken by the noise of people and kids. I wish they would either be quiet or leave. Might be nice if the spirit spooked them a little.

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.
