Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping people by providing them photos of relatives and friends grave sites. Turning a wish into a fulfilled dream.

Almost all memorials I create are not family members, and I am willing to transfer them to other members.

Do not use the photos I take anywhere else, including within Find A Grave, without permission. I retain the copyright to all of my photos.

Major Accomplishment 2015: Fulfilled over 1,000 photo requests, most of which were at Forest Home Cemetery in Forest Park, Illinois, and cleared up 75% of the photo requests at the cemetery.

Major Accomplishment 2014: Fulfilled over 2,222 photo requests with number 2,000 occurring on October 28, 2014. Multiple cemeteries with large backlogs of over 100 photo requests were cleaned up while completing this project.

Major Accomplishment 2013: Added photos for all 433 persons buried in the Chicago Typographical Union Section of Elmwood Cemetery in River Grove, Illinois along with most of the veterans sections, the old age home, Civil War wives, and a large group of graves at the southern end of the cemetery.

Albert Schirrmacher
Thank you so very much for posting the photograph of Albert's grave site at Forest Home, Ace! I have shared the picture with my mother, his niece, who is almost 90. Albert died a year after the family immigrated from Berlin of tuberculosis, so I think they were not financially able to buy him a marker at the time. And when they did have money, people had moved on with life. Albert's brothers both gave their sons the name "Albert" as middle names, so that was their memorial to him. Another great uncle of mine, Otto Rittmeyer, died in the 1918 flu epidemic, and no one bought him a marker, either. Otto died in San Francisco and is buried in Colma, CA - not far from where I live now. Otto came from Chicago to SF to make candy in April 1906, just in time for the earthquake! Poor Otto... Poor Albert... They were both kind of forgotten as far as their graves went. I have been talking to my mom about getting Otto a marker, and now we will also look into one for Albert.

Thank you so much for the lot photo for Flora. It is difficult when the cemetery won't help and then to not find a headstone. I appreciate your time and effort. Diana

I am writing to you about my great great Aunt and Uncle, which I never knew. I live in Warren, Michigan, and getting up in years, and in poor health. I know Charlotte Reckinger is buried at Forest Home.
But would like to know what section, grave, etc. I would also like to know if John Reckinger is buried with her, he was an inventor, traveling here in Michigan when he was killed in auto accident in 1916.

Thanking you in advance,
