Bio Photo Welcome -

We are doing a holy service by remembering the dead, and preserving history.

I think we all have a piece of the puzzle and if everyone contributes, questions will be answered.
please note - FINDAGRAVE as the name implies is a grave registration site and NOT a genealogy site. Although it can be very useful for genealogy.

This a wonderful site for remembering people. Peoples lives are fascinating and they deserve to be remembered and documented.

Please remember we are not just entering names or stones, but real people. Please ask yourself if your memorial is search-able. All memorials should have last names. Women who never marry, and children don't have maiden names. There is no maiden name unless the name changes. Also please do not use ().

Please do NOT create duplicates.

If you notice any mistakes, please let me know, and I will be happy to fix them. Nobody is perfect, we are all fallible human beings mostly doing the best we can at the moment.

We are merely stewards of 'our' memorials - we manage them and are entrusted with their care and maintenance, but we do not technically 'own' them.

Please read the FAQs (frequently asked questions). Thanks, and please try to resolved unknown burials ASAP.

Please free to use any of my photos with appropriate citations. Will also add updates, -the more info, the better. I don't have a policy about transfers - ask and we can work it out.

"A cemetery is a history of people - a perpetual record of yesterday and sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering - always." (author unknown)

Statistics might show that staging a listing, even virtually, improves the chances of making a sale quickly and close to ask, but the otherwise-charming Upper West Side brownstone at 116 West 71st Street shows off the dark side of computer-generated furnishings. Oddly enough, the place was formerly lightly staged with real furniture, as old listing photos can attest. The shoddy newer renderings look torn straight from The Sims and won't be convincing anyone to drop $12.8M on this fully renovated, LEED-certified townhouse. Of course, the sellers were once hoping for far more—$18M to be exact—when the townhouse came to market last year. The series of price chops and occasional tiny increases aside, anything north of $10M should be a win for the developers, who snapped up the dilapidated house for $2M before embarking on the five-year renovation.

Memorial 5133141 Helen M Kiersted Loughran
Hi Donna, this memorial's date of death is listed as March 1, 1890. I was going crazy because I have a passport application for her dated 1917. Once I actually looked at the gravestone picture, I saw that the date of death is March 1, 1930. Would you make this correction and update the memorial. Thank you.
