A collection of cemetery records from Auburn Cemetery District was transferred to the Placer County Archives (Archives) in 2004 after the Placer County Genealogical Society (PCGS) made two copies of all the documents and placed them in binders. One set of binders was given to Auburn Cemetery District and the other remains in the collection of PCGS. The originals are housed at the Placer County Archives.
Several of the original ledgers were very fragile and were in scattered fragments. Often one page would have four or more fragments with handwriting on both sides. When the PCGS volunteers copied the originals they carefully copied them in the order they found them, fragments and all. Archives volunteer Donna Dimmick painstakingly replaced hundreds of fragments with their matching fragments in sleeves to reconstruct the original page. Therefore the binders at the Auburn Cemetery and PCGS are somewhat different from the originals.
The collection of originals at the Archives was given accession numbers 2004. 15.1 through 2004.15.10. PCGS and Auburn Cemetery binders have numbered their binders 1-10.
Books 3, 8 and 9 have been entered into a database by genealogical society volunteers Jacqui Marcella, Alora Lipsmeyer and Carmel Barry-Schweyer.
The Oddfellows Book is housed in the Auburn Oddfellows Lodge. The book was photographed and transcribed by Archives volunteer April MacDonald.
May Perry's Cemetery Albums are housed at the Placer County Archives and were indexed and transcribed by Archives volunteers Sherry Shackner and Coralee Arnold.
Placer County Deed Book 97 is housed in the Placer County Archives and was indexed and transcribed by Archives volunteer Carmel Barry-Schweyer.
