How can I find out where my loved one is buried?
On the home page for Evergreen Cemetery, click on the “List of Burials” link on the left-hand side of the page. When the page comes up, click on a second “list of burials” link. This is a large .pdf file, which requires the use of Adobe Acrobat. In the far right column is the location of the burial which is listed (from largest area to smallest area) by Section, Block, Lot and Space. Write this location down on a piece of paper.

Individuals whose names are on a memorial marker, but who are not buried here, will not be on this list. Since record keeping was very poor in the 1800’s, please contact our office directly if you cannot find what you are looking for. Oftentimes, they were listed by their nationality (ex. a Norwegian child), occupation (ex. a sailor), or association with someone else in the City (ex. Mr. Dueno’s friend).

Once you have the location, you can then access the maps on the City’s website. Click on the “Cemetery Map” link on the left-hand side of the page. When the page comes up, click on a second “cemetery map” link. This will bring up an overview map of the cemetery. Put your mouse on the letter of the section you are looking for and left click the letter to access a close-up map of the section showing the blocks and lots. The larger areas are the blocks, and the smaller areas are the lots. There are six spaces in most of the lots, with one being the southern-most space and 6 being the northern-most spaces. The spaces are not listed on the close-up map.
