MOVING THE DEAD - San Francisco Cemeteries podcast

Ol' Myrt subscribes to a number of genealogy and/or history podcasts, and recommends listening to a recent offering from Richard Miller's

MOVING THE DEAD - San Francisco Cemeteries
"There are only three cemeteries left within the city limits of San Francisco. Note the phrase carefully: "left" in San Francisco. There were once far more than just three, which makes perfect sense -- after all, thousands upon thousands of San Franciscans have passed away since the establishment of Yerba Buena 170 years ago, and they all required a final resting place. The question is, what happened to them... And where are they now?"

Sparkletack offers a short history of cemeteries in San Francisco, as well as the answer to the question of which three still remain. You'll also find links to:

-- John Blackett's San Francisco Cemetery History - Maps + Photos

-- San Francisco Genealogy - Cemetery History

-- Recent Civic Center Excavations

-- San Francisco Columbarium

Happy family tree climbing!
