Bio and Links
All headstones photographed and submitted by me have been posted to Find A Grave, Ancestry, and Arizona Gravestones. These photos are intended to preserve the headstone in digital image for genealogical research. As a volunteer, I did not request permission to photograph from the cemetery or family who purchased the headstones. My intent is to provide a photographic record to the community not about numbers and ownership. No copyright claim is attached to the images and permission is not required for their usage. As a courtesy to existing family members, I do not add links to the AZ birth/death records.
As a researcher, I am in awe of the dedicated volunteers who drive hundreds of miles, invest their time in walking cemeteries in all kinds of weather, and then invest their time in processing thousands of photos for upload to find a grave. Volunteers generously photograph both family and strangers in order to preserve all of our history. I am grateful to each and every volunteer who has allowed me the use of their credited photo. To usurp a volunteer's contribution based on "family" connections fails to recognize the generosity of time and labor that went before the creation of the memorial. I retain memorials that I am actively researching, but will process any updates provided. I thoroughly research all information and links
so please do not make changes without sourcing.

Lara family posts...
Dear rlahistory,

Thank you for entering the Lara family. This family is in my family tree. They are relatives and I wanted to know how you came across the information, and where can I find your data.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Francisco Aurelio "Franc" Metzler
This is with respect to Memorial 116079342, for my husband's great, great grandfather. We appreciate the Memorial you established on Global FindaGrave on August 26, 2013, but would like to refer you to Memorial #114044810 established July 19, 2013. The July memorial includes information based on extensive research and documentation located by family members. On behalf of the family, we have some questions about the Memorial you established. We have no evidence or source that Francisco was married to Carmen Hansen. Can you provide a source for your information? Also, what is your source for his middle name "Aurelio". His death certificate with his wife Anna Diaz as the informant indicates his name was Frank A. Metzler. We have no information or source that his middle name was Aurelio. Can you help us by providing a source for that. We have spent years researching Frank Metzler and his family and will appreciate your help with the information we do not have so that we can be entirely accurate. Thanks again very much! Ruthann

Whoops, just came across the links to family (3 pages of edits will do that....)

I noticed that you requested a change of birthplace to Arizona, yet the California Death Index shows Arkansas, and the 1920 and 1910 census show Arizona. How did you resolve?

Requested a photo of memorial from our great volunteers here, as there is a difference on the dates between the directory from the cemetery (which is known to have errors) and what is listed in the California Death Index data. Better to be safe than sorry.

Do you know of any links for other family that we should add to other memorials?

Please reply using the edit button on her listing, so I have it connected. Thanks, and happy Find A Graving.

re Monreal
I think only the person posting the picture can remove it even if it is on someone else's memorial.
So which entry for Frank Monreal do you want me to remove? the July one or the Sep one?

I was wondering if you knew if Quiguis was her maiden name, it's just a suspicion but I know you've been working on this family and figured you'd know more than me.

Re: Lida/Lula Munoz
You sent this note & I said I agree that the Lida I entered looks like it's probably Lula.
I have created memorial for "Lula Marguerite." Is it possible "Lida" is actually "Lula?" If so, let me know and I will delete. Thank you.

You haven't deleted your entry yet so I went ahead & deleted mine.

RE: 18816295 Celia Lopez
Okay. But you have Louisa Corpus as her mother and both the Birth & Death certificates have Louisa Johnson.

Re: Celia Lopez
I believe you sent dates for Celia Lopez #18816295 thru the "Edit" process - a babe who was born & died in 1923. Than you sent her parents names as Marcelino Lopez & Luisa Corpus.

On the AZ death certificate for Anacleto Lopez, assuming this is Celia, the death month & day and the birth month & day don't quite match. Also the parents listing on the dc are Tranquilino Lopez and Aurelia Martinez.

Can you straighten me out regarding this?

Re: Lida/Lula Munoz
I think you're right and my Lida #18816714 should be Lula. The stone is hard to read.
