"Former TB Sanitorium in Placer County Awash if Poignant History"

The Weimar Joint Sanatorium and the Weimar Cemetery by Robin N. Yonash - NEW
The Weimar Cemetery was originally a part of the Weimar Joint Sanatorium, administered by 15 northern California counties for indigent tuberculosis patients, which operated under various names from 1919-1972. Patients who died at the Sanatorium and who had no other means of burial were interred on the Sanatorium property, AKA the Weimar Cemetery.  Since this was essentially a Potter's Field, instead of traditional tombstones each grave was assigned a number which was engraved onto a brass disc. The graves were marked by a piece of 2x6 wood with the corresponding brass disc attached. Records for each patient, located in the Sanatorium office, translated names to numbers and vice-versa. Over time many records have been lost and specific grave numbers for burials 1-107 are no longer known.
