The link to the cemetery website was not working on Aug 10 and the notice indicates it has been down for nearly a month. If it becomes viable again or a new site goes online, the old domain should probably work. You will find a link on the cemetery page on the San Mateo County First Families Blog. You will also find a link to a map there to help you find the cemetery.
St. John's Cemetery - Find A Grave lists 2888 burials with about 38% photographed. Tim Conroy read the entire cemetery in 2004 and the listing is available on Interment.net and USGenWebArchives.
The San Mateo County Community College District is offering a class by Michael Svanevik in September entitled Underground San Mateo - A subterranean look at St. John's Cemetery.
