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.

"One person can make a difference, and everyone should try." John Fitzgerald Kennedy

"We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives." JFK

Major Accomplishment 2014: Fulfilled over 2,222 photo requests. I started the year with 765 photo requests fulfilled. Starting in mid March, number 2,000 was finished on October 28, 2014 by working almost entirely on weekends. 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. Most of these were brand new memorials, so I also added biographical info to their memorials where I could find data.

James Lenley Quinn memorial
Thanks Ace for the death notice you provided for my Great Uncle Jim! Also, until I read it in your Bio, I didn't know he was buried in the Chicago Typographical Union Section of Elmwood Cemetery.
I appreciate your random acts of genealogical kindness!

I didn't write his info down but am told is buried next to her. If u don't see him then just her headstone would be fine. Thank you Ace. I was told by others this cemetery is located in a bad area of Chicago therefore why no one will go there. Do not go alone.

Just want to thank you for taking and posting these. This is something I've been meaning to do myself for over 30 years and I appreciate your kindness.

RE: Permission to use pictures
You are not wrong ... I think when I made my initial search I was using information that was too specific, and it returned a search showing she wasn't there. I have deleted my new record. Thank you for the heads up on that.

Permission to use pictures
Ace, I recently created an entry for Josephine Lersch in Saint Marys Cemetery (Evergreen Park). She shares a tombstone with her husband Herman Lersch (# 134804507). You took a pair of wonderful photos of this tombstone, and I would like to copy them over to the new entry (I just linked them).

Do I have your permission to do so?

His place of birth is from his death certificate. I am not related. If you are I'd be happy to transfer him to you. Thank you for the interesting link, it should be added to the memorial.

Ace, thanks so very much for catching that I set up the memorial for Catherine at the wrong cemetery! I'll correct that.

As for her son John, there is an Illinois Deaths and Stillbirths Index, 1916-1947 record in which it shows he was buried in Mt. Olive -- I can paste the record into his bio.

Again, thanks for checking my work; I truly appreciate it.
