Alta Vista Cemetery, Gainesville, Georgia
 
The city of Gainesville, in northeastern Georgia, is the county seat of Hall County. The city has made the burial database for Alta Vista Cemetery available on its website. Alta Vista Cemetery was established in 1872 but, since graves from other cemeteries were moved to Alta Vista when it opened, the database includes individuals who died as early as 1828.

Click the Alta Vista Cemetery search link to access the burial database. The search fields are last name, first name, date interred, and section and lot, as well as AKA ("Also Known As" -- usually the deceased's nickname). The search results are title, first name, middle, last name, AKA, Jr/Sr, date of birth, data of death, interred (date), complete grave location, funeral home, and place of death.
