According to Extraction Committee Chairperson Marilyn Ulbricht, "family history researchers with ties to Sacramento County California have two more valuable resources for finding clues about their elusive ancestor".

Root Cellar volunteers extracted and indexed these records from original books of the Coroner's Office of Sacramento County held at the Center for Sacramento History and acquired through the efforts of the Sacramento Old City Cemetery Committee.

The Root Cellar Store has these publications and others available for purchase.
