You may have relatives buried in a Comstock Cemetery?

The grave may not be marked for many reasons:





Transients population

Relocation of burial

Lack of recordation of historic burials

The Comstock Cemetery Foundation is a 501c3 located in Virginia City, Nevada. Established in 1999, our goal is to restore the gardens of the past by preserving the historic cemeteries located on the Comstock within the Virginia City National Landmark. We support Silver City, Gold Hill, and Virginia City’s historic cemeteries. We are guided by a professional advisory board and an extensive master plan. We are supported by a dedicated community, county, and volunteer base. Our board of directors has been together for nearly 21 years.

Audio Tour of the Silver Terrace Cemetery

For many years our volunteers attempted to assist families for free and make easy determinations based on accepted criteria. Over the years this has proven to be time-consuming and often the understanding of "primary source" evidence is minimal.
As a result, it is no longer free and determinations are formal.
To investigate a potential burial that is unmarked you may download the PDF file, "Application for Remarking Lost Burials" found below.
