|Bio and Links|
I came across the findagrave website by accident one day while looking up my wife's obituary. I didn't know that it existed and was touched how someone had put in her obituary on the site. So I felt the need to help out other's as I can. |
My wife Tammy Vance Alberthal is buried in the Boerne City Cemetery along with our first dog Oscar.
I retired from working in June 2012. Now I spend my time volunteering at several organizations and going to cemeteries to take pictures then update them on Find a Grave. I have walked and uploaded tombstone pictures of the entire Boerne City Cemetery, Mission Park Cemetery in San Antonio (except for inside the mausoleum), Der Stadt Friedhof (City Cemetery) and Saint Mary's Catholic Cemetery both in Fredericksburg. Currently I'm working on Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in San Antonio. I go by and check the mausoleum at Mission Park every now and then but have not found it open.
I'm not a numbers person -- for memorials that I add, I try to find the obituary for the individual and add it to the memorial as well as a picture of the person (and give credit where I found it). I believe everyone has a story and needs to be told to keep their memory alive and for future generations to see.
Don't be afraid to ask for transfers for anybody. I am totally for it and hope others would do the same for me.
My photos are free to anyone who wants to copy them for non-profit purposes, no need to ask. Just say it was from me! I give credit where I found photos on memorials that I add if they are not related to me.

Thank you Mark so much for transferring my cousin's memorial to me. I understand it wasn't necessary for you to do so and I truly appreciate your generosity.

Thank you for creating a memorial for my cousin Gloria. Her passing was a shock to us all. If you're willing I would appreciate your transferring her memorial to me (47110731). She and I are among 29 first cousins from the Emil and Ottilia Klein family and I'm blessed to mange our memorials. If you wish to keep her memorial, please link her to her parents: mother Leona Klein Koch 46077966 and father Werner Koch 46078042.

Hello again Mark,
Thank you for your generosity in transferring:
Norma Pearl Kissel Heimann # 156339639
to my care. With your help, I have successfully connected her with her mother and, soon I hope, to her three siblings. As I receive more information, I will add it to Our shared memorial.
With sincerest appreciation,

thank you so much for the transfers
I sent an edit for her name which lists Patton as her maiden name. Patton was her first husband's name.

Thank you Mark. I would love for you to transfer the Rex family memorials to me. I have pics and such and am writing bios for them.
Thank you, Mark.
