California Cemetery Inscription Sources
by Elizabeth Kot and Shirley Thomson, Indices Publishing, Vallejo, 1994.
If you are looking for general information about a cemetery or perhaps headstone inscriptions in a particular cemetery in California, this book might help. This is simply an organized bibliography of California cemetery sources. The names of the cemeteries are arranged by counties. For each cemetery are listed the sources or references that are available. These sources include genealogical newsletters, books, films, and other types of publications. All cemeteries are alphabetically indexed in the back of the book for convenient reference. If you don't know where to begin with cemetery research, start with this book.
