Cemetery History

John Greenwood was a trapper and guide who came to California in 1844. By 1849 he had established a trading post. This gold rush town at one time had a theater, four hotels, 14 stores a brewery and four saloons. Today all of those older buildings are gone. The only thing left in Greenwood is the cemetery which began in 1852.

The cemetery seems to have occasional recent burials, perhaps those who had previously purchased a burial site.

    cemetery records

    A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

    Clear Digital Media, Inc.

    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.
