Arroyo Grande Cemetery is Finished!

The San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society is happy to announce the completion of the update to the Arroyo Grande Cemetery Project.

A great group of volunteers photographed and assisted with the indexing of this historic cemetery, one of the oldest in the county.

Here are some statistics:
  • 11,300 images were taken of headstones.
  • 14,730 names of people interred (original Barry Lewis index = 12,874)
  • 1,876 new interments
Indexes are being printed for both genealogical libraries, and one for the cemetery. A fully searchable pdf index and headstone images have been uploaded to our domain so that researchers worldwide can access them for their genealogical pursuits.

The Arroyo Grande District Cemetery website can be found here: http://www.slocgs.org/slocem/AG.Cem.htm

Many thanks to the SLOCGS volunteers who participated in this project - well done!
