About the Bennett Valley Cemetery Project

This page was created for Bennett Valley Cemetery to document our ancestors that are interred there, it is managed by the California Cemeteries Team, part of the Global Cemeteries Project.

To assist our Cemeterists in this ongoing project, there is a Table of Interments at the bottom of this page. This is a sort-able listing of individuals interred at this cemetery, some of whom are linked to existing WikiTree profiles. Although all grave markers in this cemetery are being photographed, the photos can only be displayed for individuals with existing WikiTree profiles.

If you know of a person interred at this cemetery that should be linked to an existing WikiTree profile, or needs to have a profile created for them, please contact Laurel Beebe for assistance, or one of the Cemeterists for the California Cemeteries Team.

Ways to Contribute to this Cemetery

Project members are needed to:

  • Collect data and take original photographs of cemetery and individual grave markers.
GPS data, transcription, and photography are essential to document each marker, follow the guidelines for photography, and transcription.
  • Match those interred here to existing Wikitree profiles or create new ones.
Our goal is to accurately represent our ancestors, when complete everyone listed on our Table of Interments will be linked to their own WikiTree profile, and to a photo of their grave marker.
  • Validate links and transcription information.
Profile and photo links, as well as transcribed information needs to be cross-checked to ensure accuracy.
  • Create an audio/video tour of the cemetery.
Record a virtual tour of the cemetery, taking the viewer around the cemetery to explore the history of the people buried here.
