Belcrest Memorial Park Records Donation
We had a donation two weeks ago of index cards listing selected burials at the Belcrest Memorial Park Cemetery in Salem. With the help of some wonderful volunteers from Willamette University and Pat Cassidy, we have been able to compile an index to the cards, many of which have death announcements/obituaries pasted on the back side. The cards will be placed in our people cards file for researchers to view. You can view the index here:
You can view the list here: Belcrest Cemetery. Please do note this is not an official nor complete listing of burials in the cemetery.
