Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a fun and interesting hobby for me, as well as a great way to perform a meaningful community service to others. Someday I hope to have more free time to devote to it.
In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will make exceptions if I am doing photo requests for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. FIND A GRAVE ADMINISTRATORS SUPPORT THIS POLICY. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

Please be kind to Photo Volunteers! We are out there in all kinds of weather in a variety of conditions to find your friend's/relative's graves. We are not after a Pulitzer Prize and sometimes even our best effort may produce a not-so-good photo. If any of my photos are not to your liking, please leave me a message and I will try to get a better one. I will not be offended.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of approximately 25,000 memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

RE: William August Woiwod
Thanks so much! I haven't used the CADI that extensively, but I know many of the marriage indexes out of the midwest give a birth year based on their age at death, so unless the date includes month, I usually figure the birth year is +/- one. Another clue is when using the Social Security Death Index, they give the state in which they were born. However, that is actually the state in which the number was issued. If they didn't apply for a SSN until they were an adult, the state may not reflect the state in which they were born.

RE: William Edward Anderson
The data is from the online VA Database. No, I do not have a photo and often there will be an additional personalized message in addition to the service data, or the abbreviations of the branch and conflict(s) may vary a bit, but IMHO it adds to the data of each memorial to add what we do know, then supplement as more data becomes known. Up to you of course for your memorials.

Thanks, Mark

RE: Oh, no!
Thank You for your thoughts about Steve - He was a great person and a wonderful friend. I'm working on another "Racers at Rest Supplement" that will be dedicated to Steve's memory.

Jesse W. Harp
Just to correct my last message to you. I stated that I was the one who requested that Jesse's first wife Alice, be added to his site. I meant Martin B. Harp's site, not Jesse's. Gee I'm so confused!

RE: Jesse Harp
Martin B. Harp is the Father of Alice Delona Harp's children: Jesse W., Blanche, Autry A. & Altas R..They were married 10/25/1900. She was his first wife. On her memorial, it states Altas Raymond and Blanche are her children, although they are not showing up on Jesse's memorial yet. I just requested an edit to each of their memorials to add them to their Father & Mother. I'm not sure how it will then look on Jesse & Othella's site. I'm the one who asked that Jesse's first wife, Alice "Lona" be added to his memorial. Looks like she is there now and you can't tell whose kids are whose, unless you look at the Mother's memorial site. OK?

William August Woiwod
Are you related to William August Woiwod (78086870) or know his history? I'm hoping you can clear up a mystery for me. I was trying to link the children of Carl & Anna Schiska Woiwood to them on Find A Grave. I found a birth record that ties William August to them, but then on the California death record, William's mother's maiden name is given as Bohn. I think this is just a mistake on the part of whoever gave the information (there were a lot of Bohns in that part of Iowa and they did intermarry with the Woiwods) but I wanted to check with you to see if I'm making a mistake and mixing up 2 different William Woiwods.

RE: Josephine Westlake
No, I don't frankly. She is my family. I hope you understand. I would like to maintain this grave since I am related to her. She is my Aunt and I didn't know about this program until you had so generously taken the picture. Please allow me to maintain it. I hope you will, and I hope you can understand that this is family-to me. Thank you very much! Heidi Ennis
