|Bio and Links|
Since February 2012 a group of us have been working on a project to photograph the entire Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno, California. |
99% of the cemetery has been photographed
Only parts of Sections CA, CB, and CE need to be photographed.
93% of the memorials in the cemetery now has a photograph of the headstone
We are currently uploading photos for Sections K, L, X, 2C, CF, and CE.
We add new memorials as need be and add missing information.
I am MERGING duplicate memorials so please send me an email if you find any duplicates.
FAG members Samme Templin, Theresa Miller, Christine S., and Cindy S. are helping to post the photos.
FAG contributor Stewart Blandon completed Section 2E. Stewart also created an excel spreadsheet for the burials in the cemetery that has been vital for the project.
FAG contributor Kathleen Clemence completed Section R.
FAG contributor Christine and Winmar finished photographing and posting photos from Section MA.
Please contact me if you have a better photograph of a headstone for a memorial (e.g., with better lighting), and I will be happy to remove my photo from the memorial.
