On July 19, 1997, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Mormon Pioneers in the Valley of the Great Salt Lake (July 24, 1847), members of the Tahoe North Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gathered at Trails End Cemetery to survey and document those that rest there. We feel it an honor to be able to provide this record for others searching for their family.

We were and are volunteers in this effort, and it is not finished. The record is as complete as we could make it on that beautiful day in July. There are a few additions since that time as we have gone back to check some of the survey entries or to take some photos. If there are any mistakes, they are unintentional and we regret them. We hope in the future that we or others will be able to bring this record current and to make it as complete as possible. Some photos have been added to document some of the markers. Over time we hope to gather a more complete collection of photos so you won’t have to travel to Lake Tahoe to see for yourself how these good souls are remembered.

We also hope that as you look for your ancestors, or relatives, or simply enjoy the opportunity to reflect on the lives of those who rest here, you will be filled with love and appreciation for them. Each of us truly is related to each other. Most of those who participated in this service have been blessed by others who kept and passed on records of their families. We hope this record will be of help to you.

With love from your friends of the Tahoe North Ward
