RE: Wenzek

You're very welcome for the photos, Jinny. Just wish I would get to photograph some eye-level crypts once in awhile :) Like the challenge though. Glad I could help out !

Suggestion on names
Jinny,
I am not sure if you put in the name correction for Hein and his wife, but just a heads up - you may want to have the name "with no spaces" because the way F.A.G. groups the names, unless they are all the same - they will not show together. So I would suggest that they all are the same to be able to locate other family members with the same last name. Sometimes people just don't know to look for other spellings of the name - think outside the box sort of speak.

RE: Kassers at Woodlawn!
Okay, Jinny, here's the instructions for you:
Click on "Add Burial Records" and choose "Family and Friends" (left side of screen).
You now have a screen that says "Step 1 - Biographical Information". Fill in all of the information you can. You will always be able to go back and add more information once the memorial is completed. Near the bottom of this screen it says "Burial" and you need to choose "Cemetery Burial". Then at the bottom where is says "Proceed to Step 2", click that.

Now it will say "Step 2 - Find the Cemetery". Just type in "Woodlawn" for the name. Type in "California" and then "Los Angeles" for the county. Now you will see there are two Woodlawns in Los Angeles County, so make sure you choose the one in Compton.

Last, you click "Add this Name" (bottom of the screen). It might take a minute for this last step, but then you will get a prompt that says "To View Memorial you just created, click here" and then you are done!

Let me know when you have the two memorials added and I will add the same grave photos.

Photo tip: When adding portrait photos of the person, you will notice there is a drop-down box for the type of photo: make sure you choose "Person". That way, the portrait photos will always be at the top. On memorials that you manage, you can always change the order of the photos. But if you are ever adding photos to a memorial that you are not in control of, you cannot change the order.

I hope this helps. If you get stuck, let me know.

Best regards,
Bonnie

PS - If you ever intend to add a bunch of memorials at any one particular cemetery, the entry of them is easier. Let me know if you ever get to that point and I'll explain how to do it.

Kassers at Woodlawn!
Hi Jinny! I'm so glad you found the information you were looking for. Yes, Ruben is very helpful but there are certainly limitations -- he 'inherited' quite a mess when he took on ownership of Woodlawn. I was actually there after you had been there because I saw flowers at the Kasser marker; I knew it must have been you.

Anyway, it is really very easy to add memorials to this site. Would you like me explain how you can do it, or do you really want me to do it and then transfer them to you? Either way is okay with me, but you should learn how to do it because there will surely be more relatives that you will want to add to this site.

I've seen all of the lovely old photos you have added to memorials. They are treasures, aren't they?

Anyway, let me know if you would like to learn how or to have me add them.

Best regards,
Bonnie

RE: SIGLIE
Going to Salt Lake City? How awesome.

Thank you so much for letting me know about the Siglie brothers. I've done some more research on ancestry.com regarding Marion. Due to your grandmother's inscription & state voter registrations, I'm going with Marion. Judging by all the info, I think the "Martin" on the 1910 census was an error. Anyway I've changed his Find A Grave page.

Totally looking forward to meeting up with you when you visit the area.

Regards, Phyllis

RE: Memorial Management
I wouldn't know about sponsoring (I don't sponsor). I think sponsoring refers to being able to put more than the normal amount of photos on the memorial and removing ads from it. ... but as I said the person who maintains the memorial is the person who can make changes directly.

Good luck!

RE: Memorial Management
Jinny,
Red hearts do not mean you are the manager. The created by or maintained by person is the manager of the memorial (located in the body of the memorial near the bottom). When you are listed as one of those you are able to use the edit tab or the various links in the memorial to make/add changes.

If you are not the maintaned by or created by person listed at the bottom of the page you can use the edit tab just below the persons name to the right to go to the next page, click on the make a suggestion link and put in your request either to have the memorial transferred to you and why or to add/change info to the memorial.

Hope this explanation is more helpful.

Memorial Management
Hi Jinny,

If you are the manager of a memorial (which as I recall you are on the daughter) you should have a link in the memorial to link family members. You can add parents and spouses from that link. I believe the link is right under the birth and death dates.

If you don't manage a memorial - use the edit tab at the top right to put in your request to have the manager add parents and spouses, add bio material, notes, etc. You can also request a transfer of management to you.

Hope this has been helpful.

Hi Jinny,

I added his parents. You will have to add the daughter by adding her parents to her memorial.

Hi Jinny

What wonderful photographs! Always love to see what the people looked like. Thanks for adding them. They were quit handsome.

Wonder if you know anything about Louis "Babe" Dondero?

Your Grandparents
Would you like me to transfer management of your grandparents to you? (I am not related). If you do, please go to their individual edit tabs and make the request including your Find A Grave #.

Thanks!

RE: Katherine KASSER GLAVINIC
You're welcome, Jinny, and I wish I could be more help to you. There were no other gravestones nearby with any of the names you inquired about. That doesn't mean they aren't buried there, just that I can't locate headstones.

This cemetery is very old and disorganized. They do not have the records on computer, and they have to be searched by hand. The rows, in many places, seem to have the burials set out in a hodge-podge manner. The contributors known as Woodlawn Volunteers have gotten this cemetery over 90% transcribed, but there were no Brummelers in that transcription. Unless, as in the case of the name "Kasser", it was misspelled. The oldest (pre-1900) burials are the ones that seem to be missing from the transcription, and we are adding them to this site as we find them.

Since you plan to come for a visit, I strongly suggest that you contact the office first to make an inquiry. They are supposed to be closed on Monday and Tuesday, but I went one time on a Wednesday and the gates were locked. They have a very small staff. So it is better to make sure that someone is going to be there to help you. If you want to contact me in advance of your visit, I can also try to be there and lend an extra set of eyes.

Good luck!

-Bonnie

Photo Request
Hello. The graves of Katherine Glavinic and others that you mention appear to be unmarked. The only marker I did find in the lot given as the location was a lone marker that just says "Kasser". There are three memorials on this site but it is spelled "Kassar" (Bart, Clara, and Clara Ellen). They are all supposed to be in the lot that I photographed, according to the cemetery record. I also saw no headstones for anyone in this area named "Brummler". Please refer to the memorial of Bart Kassar. As you will see, I photographed that lone stone and also a view of the area. There are no other stones next to it. If the persons you are looking for (including the photo request for Katherine Glavinic) are supposed to be buried in this lot, then there are no markers. I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome.

Best regards,
Bonnie
