Have you made Memorial Day plans yet? Why not make plans to spend the day or at least part of the day at Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, where there will be special activities!
May 31, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. the 89th Annual Memorial Day Commemoration will be held. There will be a salute to the fallen, guest speakers and a presentation of the colors. Dennis Evanosky will lead a Civil War Plot tour at 11:30 am. California and the role Californian's played in the Civil War will be emphasized by Dennis.
Harry Santini's Headstone is in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Hayward. I came across this stone one day when I was visiting and looking for family headstones. The surname Santini is in my daughter's family history, so I took this photo. My daughter's great grandmother was Eva Santini born in California in 1894. Could Harry be Eva's brother? Maybe he was her cousin? Santini isn't a very common name so I tend to think there is a relationship there. I will be looking into this!
