March, 2015
I will have limited computer access during March. I will make all updates as time allows.
* * * * *

When I walk a cemetery, I make a note of other nearby relatives, the section/area I am in and include it in my transcriptions. When you are researching a 'John Smith', it helps to know if there are other 'Smith' names next to him. It is very helpful having any plot information.
Some cemeteries restrict photo taking by non-family members. Having any plot information helps all of the photo volunteers.
When I first started, I just wrote down names without photos. Now I take photos of all of the headstones.

Quite often I find myself researching the folks that I create memorials for, adding additional information and linking as many as I can locate.

As time allows, I am willing to do some Oregon obituary research for others. This is my form of 'Pay It Forward'.

* * * * *
I will make corrections/additions to any memorial that I have created.

All requests are verified before I change the memorial.

Thank you so much for posting this info. I had no idea that my grandparents were buried together or even where they were.

Hello Ann, The two other children listed in the 1900 census (Caroline and Mary W.) are also interred (and you have recorded them) at Mt. Crest Abbey. They are Elizabeth A. KORINEK #97517460, and Maryan W. Hagen #115054133, wife of Oscar L. Hagen #115054085. I would be happy to provide you with proof if you would allow me to contact you privately.

First, thank you for recording these two individuals at Mt. Crest Abbey Mausoleum. Second, there are two people incorrectly listed with them as a daughter and a son. A third person listed, is in fact, a daughter. Are these calculated relationships easy to delete?

Your entry for this person has the b date of 12 Apr 1901 and d date of 14 Feb 1965; however, the data on the tombstone pictured on that entry has dates of 16 Sep 1900 and 11 Jan 1969.??

Hi Ann -- Another bit of obituary information for one of your memorial pages.

Maggie Leff's obituary was published in
The Oregon Statesman (Salem, Oregon) on 23 Jul 1933 and gives her full name as Mrs. Margaritte Leff. She had daughters, Mrs. C. H. Wilson, Mrs. Hilda Beutler, Mrs. Lydia Zigvalsen, Mrs. Arthur Koming, Mrs. Anna Thompson and sons, John Leff, Herman Leff, and Albert Leff. She had brothers, John G. Hagenlacker and Phillip M. Hagenlacker and sisters Mrs. Henry Schott and at least two others that were cutoff by the end of the page -- my photocopy was meant to copy another person's obituary.

If you are interested in the rest of the obituary, it is on microfilm at Salem Public Library, Salem, Oregon.

I just added a memorial for Isadora McKinley Foreman, #142132505, based on an obituary I captured with research records. I am not related to her so I will transfer it over if a relative wants it.

I also did a search for her other son, Thomas O. Rogers and may have found him at #51178285.
