They know where all the bodies are buried, and now thanks to new technology you will too, quite easily.

East Lawn Memorial Parks hosts  a rich history of Sacramento’s most colorful and influential families. But that translates into 100,000 people buried on their grounds, and housed in their mausoleums.

So how do you find someone on the grounds? Currently, there are index cards with basic information held in file cabinets on a computer.

Soon, you will be able to tap an app on your phone and locate anyone here and get biographies on each person’s life.

The upgrade is in the works and is set to go online sometime next year.
