YUBA COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE DEATH INDEX
Always a work in progress - this index is not complete
I will include names from cemeteries outside Yuba County that I have walked and photographed, and other records that I can access. These lists are time consuming to update, so please check the individual cemetery lists as well.
Updated July 2005. Previous listing was 13,143 names. 16,304 names and growing...
Updated July 17, 2006 - 18,563 names
Updated Oct. 30, 2006 - 19,304 names
Updated Oct. 2007 - 24,072 names
Updated March 2009 - 26, 981 names
IMPORTANT NOTE: I have not come across any Yuba Cemetery Districts who have totally complete records of burials, and this is especially true for the earlier years. Records were lost or taken by persons who had charge of the cemeteries then.

DEATH RECORDS The records include four volumes of Death Certificates of Yuba County dated 1889-1897, removal records during those years, plus Funeral Records of Wheatland from 1886-1888. This is not a verbatim transcription of the records. The name of the attending physician or who signed the death certificate is omitted due to lack of space. Spelling corrections have been made in some areas, and abbreviations used due to space considerations. All entries have been alphabetized. The basic data has been included that is of importance to the researcher. To print, you will need legal size paper in landscape format.
Undertaker's records from 1889-1897 - - A - B, C - D, E - G, H - K, L - N, O - R, S - T, U - Z
Removal Permits - These are records for deceased that either died outside of Yuba County and were returned here for burial, or sent out of Yuba County for burial elsewhere. A - L, M - Z
Funeral Records for Wheatland - A - Z
Block Funeral Home Records - 1928-1953 - Gridley, Butte County - - A-B, C-E, F-G, H-J, K-Mc, M-O, P-R, S, T-Z
Unless otherwise indicated, all places are in California. This list is from a transcription done by the Sutter Yuba Genealogical Society. All data in that transcription is included. No places of burial were given. Errors left as in original transcription. Reformatted and transcribed by Kathy Sedler, © 2005, 2006
~~~For the researcher of ancestors in early Yuba County, there are many challenges that may present themselves. First of all, many who came here in search of gold, were not listed in census records. They may have come and gone between census years, been in remote mining camps or areas, or not present during those times census was taken. They may not be included in burial records, as some are listed as "unknown" after drowning or being found in the river. As the mining camps grew persons may have been buried, and either their name unknown, or no records kept. Many of the bars mentioned in earlier records as mining camps are now underwater, buried in silt, or abandoned. There was a large influx of immigration and emigration to this area - especially during the Gold Rush. Those of Asian descent were usually not fluent in English, so their names are recorded as the record taker best understood. Numerous listings for Asians with the name of "Ah" are found, and have not been included in past transcriptions - but will be now. Approximately twenty years of burial records for Marysville City Cemetery are not currently available. Prior to about 1880, records were haphazard - and in many cases, even after that time. As in all genealogy research, you will find that the information given in city, county, and state records is only as accurate as the person providing the information and the person documenting them. Last, but not least, is also the fact that much of what is currently available are prior transcriptions, that could possibly have been retyped numerous times...with errors added each typing...and totally dependant upon the original transcriber's skill in reading difficult handwriting. Until I am able to locate or have the time to transcribe the original source records, the information contained in these listings has not been verified unless otherwise noted. Original record books are scattered all over the county and must be transcribed in person. ~ ~ ~ I intend to get as many available records as possible onto this site. I hope it helps in your search.
