Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved to visit cemeteries and thought it was a little weird until I found this website. Visiting a cemetary satisfies many of my favorite hobbies: plants ( Whenever I go, I walk around watering plants that people leave for their loved ones but are unable to come back and take care of), photography, and history. I especially like to visit old cemeteries to take pictures of the elaborate monuments. I'm really happy to discover there are thousands of you out there that feel the same.

I try to put as much information as I can find on the internet with each memorial and also try to include the source. Feel free to use any pictures of headstones and grave markers that I have uploaded on your family websites or Ancestry,com.

Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers. ~ Hans C. Andersen

Hi! Regarding your photo request, can you please contact the cemetery and obtain the Section, Lot, and Grave Number information, and then post it to your request? Please also ask if there is a grave marker and add that information to your photo request and/or memorial. The Find A Grave FAQs state the photo requestor is responsible to provide this information.

Elmwood Cemetery: (708) 453-0273

This cemetery provides extremely limited assistance to photo volunteers with finding a grave's location. Last year I was able to fulfill almost 200 photo requests at Elmwood through this process. Because the lots in this cemetery are poorly marked, almost no one else ever photographs here. I have only had success here because I have spent literally weeks at a time to learn the intricacies of the layout of this cemetery.

Thank you for helping me to help you.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by anyway. I have 2 sisters that are not very nice people and thought that it was appropriate to leave ugly notes to me on Momma and Daddy's Find A Grave site. So it was best that that feature was removed, I just include Momma and Daddy when I visit my grandparents Find A Grave sites.

We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.
