|Bio and Links|
Since Las Vegas is a relatively young city, most of the cemeteries in the valley are less than 50 years old. I am currently concentrating my efforts on Palm Valley View Memorial Park, a large, beautiful cemetery that straddles the border of Las Vegas and Henderson.|
I believe that the history of any community is comprised of the stories of each and every one of its inhabitants. It is immaterial whether the person was the city's mayor or a dishwasher; every piece of this human mosaic is an integral part of the historical perspective. I am committed to preserving this history by creating entries that include a bio along with the photo of the person's headstone or marker. I hope that my efforts will eventually become a valuable resource for those who are exploring the history of the Las Vegas Valley, as well as for those who are researching their personal family histories.
When creating a memorial entry, I usually start with a photo of the headstone. I then attempt to find obituaries or news stories related to the person's life. The online archives of the local paper only go back to 1991, however, so often I come up empty-handed. Whatever info I can find goes into creating the memorial entry. (Note: I have obtained permission from both of my local newspapers to use published obituaries as long as I attribute the source).
I consider my entries to be "works in progress" and welcome any suggestions that you might have that will enhance an entry. However, I appreciate your patience while waiting for me to respond. Due to the high volume of entries that I have created to date, I receive several letters a day suggesting changes or requesting management transfers. I respond as promptly as I am able. After 30 days, if you haven't received a response from me please contact me again - it's possible that your request fell through the cracks somehow.
I do not adhere strictly to Find-A-Grave's transfer criteria. Any reasonable request will be considered. However, please determine whether you really need to manage an entry before you make a transfer request. For example, one does not need to manage every entry of a particular surname; the virtual cemetery feature allows one to keep track of these sorts of entries.
I will not respond to transfer requests posted on this page. Please follow the proper transfer request procedures so that I receive an email containing links to the memorials you would like to manage.
If you are requesting that I add additional information, please reference the source from which the info was obtained(Veterans Administration records, obituaries, Social Security Death Index, census records, family records, etc.). I strive to make my entries as accurate and inclusive as possible. If I add suggested info into an entry that I manage, I will reference the source. Please do not ask me to add info that is not verifiable. Example: a contributor recently asked me to link two people as married simply because they were interred in the same crypt. Research revealed that they were actually mother and son, not husband and wife.
Please do not submit bios or obituaries that sensationalize the tragic circumstances of a person's passing. I do not believe these lurid and violent details belong on this web site.
I decline to give permission to use my photos for resale, for profit, or to upload to a different web site.

|John Kincer 4||My Grandpa's memorial|
Thank you for posting my Grandpa's memorial, I live in Alabama and he was buried back home in Las Vegas. He was a great dude and its nice to see you researched and published his obit. Thanks!
I read your bio and I also like to add info to memorials found by gleaning old newspapers. If you are an ancestry member go to Search Card Catalog then type in Nevada and search for newspapers in the area of whatever cemetery you are entering then search a name. Most newspapers go back to the 1800's and are a treasure trove of family information.

Thank you for the nice photo for his memorial.
|RememberThem||RE: Alpine EugeneThornton|
Thank you very much for the updates, as well as for the photograph. That is an impressive monument.
Thank you for your help.
Tim, I have the original email requests, that state they are at the Green Valley location if you would like to see them.

Tim, the information I was given for their location was at the Green Valley location. I noticed the information you received was at the Valley View location. That is why I put they were not buried at the location I received. Of course if you have the right location you can call the office and they will tell where they are buried.

I am the daughter of this wderful man whom you recently added from the Boulder City Veterens Memorial Cemetary, you have also published his obituary from thhe news paper, stating that you had permission, however no one in our family as been contacted. As our extended family does alot of ancestry and this pops up in a search I am not asking you to delete, I would just like to know who you are, did you even know him, and why were we not asked permission or how we felt about you posting a picture of his final resting place WITHOUT checking with any of his family. I personally find this very disrespectful, especially given the wnderful kind of man he was.
