Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm in the process of photographing every ceramic photo portrait on markers at the Santa Clara Mission Cemetery in Santa Clara, California. So far I have over 6400 listings with over 12350 photos and eventually all the photos will be uploaded to Find A Grave. I'm still in the process of taking care of this, so if you see a memorial created by me at the Santa Clara Mission Cemetery, I have a photo(s) for it. Contact me directly and I'll upload the photos right away. I'm about 4/5 of the way done taking photos for the entire cemetery and hope to finish soon and get everything uploaded. I didn't realize what a big project this is, but it's been fascinating, historical, emotional and well worth the time and effort. Once I'm done with this cemetery, I'll move on to another and start all over again. Just wish I had more time to spend doing this. Any problems or corrections with any of my listings or if you have information to add to a listing, please feel free to send it to me via my e-mail address. If you are related to one of my listings, please feel free to request a transfer of ownership, it's not about quantity... it's about quality. Thank you very much!

Frank Dodd-77132846
Dan, if you would like to transfer Frank Dodd-77132846 and his wife Hilda Dodd-77132847, I would be happy to maintain their memorials. I am helping my cousin Virginia Andricks with her grandmother Grace (Calkins) Abraham-162639144 linking all family members together.
Thanks for all your contributions to Find A Grave.

I wish to Thank you,for taking such care and detail in all of what you are doing. You have no idea the shock and wonder I felt when looking for family records Out pops a large picture of my Grandmother whom I never got to meet. I hardly remember the picture and never seen it so close as I have stood there many times as a child. You are right It is worth it. For all of us and important plz dnt leave out the importance of of it.... Once again Thank you.
Lisa Espinoza.
