|I stumbled upon this site by accident and I am grateful that I did. I finally got to see my famous great uncle's grave. Thank you to all of the contributors to this site, finding his grave truly meant the world to me.|

We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.
If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.
Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

|Mary E P||Emil Brandeis, Titanic victim|
I, too, have always been fascinated by the Titanic disaster. A relative was to be a passenger, but a family member became ill and she had to remain in Sweden to care for the ill person. You might be interested in reading a very fascinating book, And the Band Played On, by Christopher Ward, the grandson of band member, Jock Law Hume. We've been to both Belfast where the ship was built and to Halifax, Fairview Cemetery, where many victims are buried. I looked on the wall of the museum in Halifax and found Emil's name on that wall listing those who died. Many a shopping day was spent in the Brandeis store and viewing movies at the Brandeis theater. Once a very pretty "downtown" but am very happy to see the Brandeis Bldg still there.
