Bio Photo Some info on current cemetery projects I'm working on or have recently completed.

Researching Historic Riverside Cemetery Denver - adding plot info to exisiting memorials and adding missing memorials with photos if and when available.

My Nebo - Aurora, CO - All sections walked and memorials added as of Dec 2014

Hello,
I am Robin Brilz and I currently reside in Aurora, CO. I am a Records and Archives Manager for a large engineering firm. I volunteer my time to help complete and document the histories and information of our cemeteries and graveyards. In my many walkings and wanderings... I have noticed the many missing records and photos from the Find A Grave site. I will be working to help correct those missing memorials

View list of Memorials with NO GRAVESTONE - working to complete those photos within Mt Nebo.

As I've continued to search out my Russian German ancestry, I'll be adding those missing records and photos of grave stone markers to Find A Grave as well. Should you have a request..please don't hesitate to ask, I'll certainly try to help you out as best I can.

I have always been drawn to our cemeteries and often wonder about the people and their stories. I have been interested in gravestone rubbings as well.(keep in mind that I do not use items that leave behind marks)...my first thought in working with gravestones and markers of all kinds...is DO NO HARM!
I found that the term is "taphophile" or "lover of tombstones", never knew there was such a thing!


I will transfer memorials as requested to family members, so please don't hesitate to ask for any transfers.

If I mess up or do something incorrectly, please remind me gently, so I can make any corrections and I learn from my mistakes!

Should a family member wish to have a grave stone photo removed or a memorial removed for privacy concerns, please, please...let me know. I do not want to offend or cause any issues for anyone.
Thank to all volunteers on F.A.G....this is how I was able to locate "missing" family members...some that I never had the honor to meet.

Thank you so much for the photos of John and Augusta Alf. I have memorials for two of their sons at Crown Hill. It is good to have them connected to their parents and to see the markers for John and Augusta.

RE: Dermody Photo request at Riverside
Thank you so much, Robin! After 23 years I doubt that the stone will ever be inscribed. I appreciate the fact that you took the photo and posted it. -- Leona

RE: duplicate of Joseph Brilz??
The last names are spelled a little different, but dates are the same. Yours is more complete and most likely spelled right, but I've been "chewed out" several time by members, if theirs where the first one posted "that theirs were there first and they are not going to remove it".....disturbing that egos trump the greater good. So I've decided to just inform the latest entry posted and they can decide what they want to do.

Re not stone thank you for the info.. If you could get a picture of the "area" where a stone "should be" that would be great.

Thanks!

RE: Older photos at Riverside Cemetery Denver
Hi Robin,
The picture was taken Aug 1984, the little girls are my daughters the oldest Renee Anne and the youngest was Dorothy Lee. Jane Vance Wamsley daughter Georgia Wamsley Mason was my wife Dorothy Ann Mason Parker grandmother. I will look through my pictures and see if I have anymore pictures of Riverside Cemetery. The other picture I posted earlier was for Clarence Wamsley (Jane's husband).
Thank you for your letter.
