The Chula Vista Genealogical Society recently completed the publication of the "Burial Records of Glen Abbey Memorial Park," which is located in Bonita CA, just east of Chula Vista and south of San Diego. It is the largest cemetery south of San Diego in the County. Over 35,000 people were buried here between 1924 and 1999 (deaths since 2000 are not included). The complete work is arranged in alphabetical order by SURNAME and is searchable and printable. This volunteer project took over ten years to complete by our members working with the cemetery people. In paper form, the work is 1,562 pages.
These records are not available in any other database, other than limited tombstone recordings by local people and posted on the San Diego County GenWeb site.
The Society has put these records on a CD-ROM. The CVGS web site at http://www.rootsweb.com/~cacvgs2/page6.html provides more details, as does my blog post at http://randysmusings.blogspot.com/2006/08/glen-abbey-memorial-park-bonita-ca.html
