Lake County Genealogical Society plans May 28 morning cemetery tour

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Lake County Genealogical Society will present a tour of the historic section of the Upper Lake Cemetery on Saturday, May 28.

The tour begins at 10 a.m. at the cemetery arch on the east side of Clover Valley Road.

Starting off the tour will be a grave dowsing demonstration and instruction. This activity is used to locate bodies in unmarked graves.

Older cemeteries often contain headstones which identify parent's names, but not their children. Identifying the number of children buried in a grave site helps a genealogist determine the number of family members to research.

Local genealogist Anita Crabtree and others will conduct the tour with life histories of some buried therein, such as Joy Madeiros, members of the Bear Flag Revolt, the Cache Creek Dam vigilanties and others as the tour progresses.

The 45-year-old nonprofit Lake County Genealogical Society maintains a Research Library of local families, along with other historic documents and is seeking a permanent home in Lakeport so the public can access the collection.

Until such time, research inquiries can be made to Anita Crabtree via phone at 707-275-2144 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
