RE: j shackelford
Are you asking about Hamp and Joyce's? If you click on the picture, it gets larger. If you can't, I can type the info for you. I can see it. I unfortunately don't live near this graveyard...I was visiting when I got these pix.

RE: information
Thanks for your note.

My experiences with the contributor you mentioned have not met with much cooperation either but it looks like, in this case, everything was done as one would hope. He transferred the grave photo to your memorial and deleted his duplicate.

All's well that ends well, I guess.

Best wishes

RE: Sayer memorial
Go to the memorials in question and use the edit button and ask for a transfer. It links me to you and the memorial at the same time. You never gave me memorials numbers.

Hmmm, that's strange. I thought I created a memorial for Susanna and added the photos to it. Now I see that there is one created by you. I'll add the photos to that one. I don't know what happened!

RE: Somm, Kraus, and Carroll
The black block I use to polish the stones is something that was meant to clean grills with. My husband purchased it at Smart 'n Final. I don't know if you have those stores in your area. But, it is about the size of a brick, is black and porous (like pumice is). I believe it isn't as abrasive as pumice. The cemetery workers use them and that is were I got the idea from. I hope you can find one too, the work very nicely. Just spray a thin coat of water and wipe with the black thingy and then wipe with a cloth, then a clean cloth. It is amazing, they look brand new!
All the best,

Somm, Kraus, and Carroll
Oh yes....I wanted to thank you for providing the plot, space, etc numbers for each of the graves. It really cuts my time down significantly...Many people do not provide that and the cemeteries are sometimes reluctant to give a stranger the directions and so, it can take so much time just to get them.
But, I really appreciate it more than you know. I wish all requesters were as considerate as you.
All the best,
Susan V.

RE:Cleaning Grave Stones
So glad you liked the photos of Somms, Kraus, and Carroll grave markers. I really try to get the best photo I can get, because these photos will most likely outlast the stones themselves. It is so sad that some are disintegrating!

I clean and polish exactly the way the workers at the cemetery do....I sweep them off, spray with some water (from a spray bottle-just plain water) and then I polish with a thing that looks like black pumice. It can be bought anywhere they sell barbeques. They are generally used for cleaning grills. It is a block of this black stuff, reminds me of a synthetic pumice. It works like a charm and doesn't scratch the marble or granite. I wouldn't try it on the other types of stones, but that is the main type out here in Southern California.

RE: more grave sites
Okay, just give me the names and year of death if you know it, and if not, that's okay. The only problems I have ever ran into was when the name was real common. There are over 300,000 people buried there, so if the name is common, there could be more than one or two (like Thomas Smith, John Brown, Maria Garcia, etc.) Middle names would be useful, if you know them, but don't worry about it if you don't know them.

RE: Kegayama pictures
You're welcome. The cemetery database is a little misleading. There is a column for "Crypt/Space No." but is only used if there is a letter or number involved, for example, "lot 219, grave A" or if in a mausoleum, there will be a crypt number.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of information on their website that was left out. in the case of the Kageyamas, the lot is provided, "Cherry Blossom" but not the lot number or the grave number.

I just go into the office and ask. They will give me whatever I want. (I am a customer of theirs!)

Best Regards,

RE: want to add information
Go to the memorial you want to add information to and hit the edit button and tell me what to put on the memorial. you can add photos yourself. If you wish, use the edit button and ask for a transfer and you can have the memorial.

RE: did you know my aunt and uncle?
I STARTED by inputting my own family. Of course, that was about 1600 people. =)
Then I just started at the smaller cemeteries around my house (generally within 15-20 miles).
I would walk the rows, take pix of all the stones and create the memorials as needed. Then I started finding burial records online so I input those. If you read my bio, this was just the natural course of things for me. I am still trying to build the foundations for family members to work from.
