|Bio and Links|
My name is Antonio. Born in my father's hometown of El Paso, Texas. My childhood was mostly in my stepfather's hometown of Truchas, NM. Later moved back to Mom's hometown of Espaņola, NM where I eventually graduated High School and then left to the Air Force. I've done some traveling, but home is Home. I began actively researching my genealogy around 2001, although it was always an interest since childhood. I've researched other family genealogies too. I frequent cemeteries looking for data. I appreciate the connection felt from seeing the final resting places of family members and connecting others to the same experience. I've come across unidentified graves due to time and erosion. So, in addition to identifiable graves, I've tried to include damaged graves with the slightest of information. I hope anyone with additional information for these graves would please share that information and save these graves from becoming lost graves. It's my ambition to try and preserve the identities of all graves I come across. On memorials I manage, I try to research what I can to not only preserve their identity, but their legacy as well. I also attempt genealogical connections when available, particularly in my own community area. |
I have lots of family and friends in the Espaņola Valley, therefore I am in a position to adequately manage and update their memorials per findagrave's "ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it." I know a few contributors are ambitious with their stats, and that's fine. Grave documentation provides a useful service and I don't see a conflict with transfer requests if it honors findagrave's ultimate goal. I hope that is considered when I make transfer requests for non-family members. Sometimes, it facilitates my ongoing research and reduces my follow up process. Some contributors are wise enough to understand this, Thank You. I enjoy the collaboration process and often share updates I come across. There is only one contributor that I have had an adverse encounter with, and that's one too many. Please work with me, so that I don't feel reluctant about working with you. I'm not a collector, I'm a researcher.
My copyright protected photos are free for viewing and private personal use, but not for dissemenating. Any competent attorney will confirm that they do not fall under "Public Domain". If there is a use for my photo, it is courteous to at least request permission before hijacking and plagerizing the photo. Depending on the project, I may be and have been accomadating. But I absolutely decline permission for paid membership sites like ancestry.com. I don't believe in my photos being used to enhance other's profit potential. Thank you to all those who have extended me the courtesy of requesting permission.
I'm as fallable as the next person, so I do welcome any and all corrections and collaborations. I do endeavor to respect the wishes of survivors of the deceased. Basic communication generally resolves many issues. May all our lives be fulfilling before the grave finds us.

Thanks for transferring David's Memorial to me. I have deleted the duplicate I had created.

Thanks for your reply. I believe my grandfather is in the old Santa Cruz cemetery. I am not too sure of the Holy Cross and Santa Cruz cemetery locations. My grandmother Simona Herrera Gallegos and uncle "Tito" Gallegos are buried (I believe in Holy Cross). However, my grandfather died during the depression and I am sure that a nice tombstone was not provided.
How big id the old Santa Cruz cemetery. My relatives have lived in Santa Cruz and Espinola for centuries.

I have been a member of Find A Grave but need more information on how to use Find A Grave.
My Grandfather was born Fidel Jose Gallegos 1/9/1888, died 3/7/1940. My cousins have searched the cemetery next to Santa Cruz Church in Santa Cruz. Many stones are unreadable. If we could find his grave, my cousins and I would like to replace his stone. He only had 3 granddaughters.
I have tired leaving a message before but feel my computer is not working correctly.
My email is RGallegos8587@Comcast.Net.
I would appreciate any information. My family has lived in this area since the late 1600.
Sincerely - Rosemary Gallegos

Hello........will you transfer administration of memorial #95081757 (David Garcia) to me? He was my first cousin, also born the same year as me. I emailed a private request to you but haven't heard back.
Thanks for all the work you do for FindAGrave.

"Recieved a SAC, but no data provided to proceed. I am unable to research censuses at this time."
I have no idea what I sent. I submit a lot of "edits" and don't keep a record or check back. Too much to do. If it was a link to his parents, I would have posted the Census record on their memorial.

This is Adela Aranda, with a D and not a B. If you could make the correction, please. They had two daughters with the same name. My family has this peculiar way of keeping the name even when the child dies. I think it's strange, but oh well.
Thanks for all you do!
