Researching your ancestors and family history? Want to locate or learn more about a specific burial site? There are more than 5,000 graves at the Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery, and the Preservation Committee researches and maintains a roster of the known burials. They can provide location and some genealogical data, where it is available. Call the Recreation and Parks office at 707-543-3279 for more information.
The Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery's Memorial Program (PDF) allows individuals or families to install a memorial stone and plaque to honor those whose burial site is elsewhere or unknown. Memorial stones are permanently mounted in the Memorial and Habitat Garden.
