Looking For Someone?

If you are searching for the burial site of an individual interred in either the Alhambra Pioneer Cemetery or the Saint Catherine of Siena Cemetery of Martinez, the Martinez Historical Society might be able to assist you. The Martinez Museum archive includes information about many Martinez families including burial records.

An archivist at the Museum can be reached by email as follows:

The City of Martinez is another source of information as owner and manager of the Alhambra Pioneer Cemetery. The City’s cemetery web page contains their most recent decedent lists for the Alhambra Pioneer Cemetery, Potters Field, and American Civil War veteran

The Martinez Cemetery Preservation Alliance does original research to identify the graves of individuals and their descendants for whom records are lacking or incomplete.

The Contra Costa County Genealogical Society is another resource for locating graves and tracing the family trees of the deceased.

The Contra Costa County Historical Society  can also be a source of information on those who lived and died in Martinez or who are buried in a Martinez cemetery.
