Amnesty for Grave Markers and Monuments

The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office worked with the Cemetery Commission to develop an amnesty program for the return of any cemetery markers or monuments.  The Commission is especially interested in the concrete markers from New Helvetia Cemetery that may still be in yards in the area around Sutter Middle School.
