Bio and Links
Bio Photo Contact me using the EDIT button on the Memorial you have a question about (quickest way) or you can leave a public message.

Am related to 90% of Memorials I've posted and may have more info on the individual(s) including info for relatives I have not yet posted.

A HUGE thank you to those who have helped update memorials by adding data and/or photos and to those who have graciously transferred memorials to me. There's a lot of hard work by a lot of great contributors on this site!

I am blessed when I can share my work with others and welcome questions and/or corrections. If I've made a transcription error...let me know, politely, if you find one.

Feel FREE to use the tombstone photos I have taken!!

However, personal photos that I own/have taken and posted here have been copied and placed on other sites without my permission. Please ask and I will most likely allow it based on:

1) where it is being posted and

2) proper attribution given, i.e. "posted by Cherie in OC on Find A Grave" ONLY so that anyone wanting more info can contact me about the origin of photo or to obtain more information. I've been in the position of asking someone about a photo and have been told they didn't know anything about it, they just copied it and couldn't remember from where!

NEED HELP? FREE and not kidding. I'm not a certified genealogist, but have over 14,000 hours of genealogy research for myself, and others, since 2001. Started when I was 14 with a gen chart that included 3 generations with about 40 people. I still have the original chart! I love trying to find obituaries and solving brick walls and would be happy to help with yours... Leave a message with what you are trying to find and I will see what I can *ahem* "dig up"

RE: Nagy/Oatman
Interesting how names evolve, isn't it? As Sandor is his given name, by all means put that in the first name field with Alexander as a nickname. As long as they are both there, he'll be found. I have a similar problem with my Dad- Giovani/John.

As to Oatman, well that is on the stone and that is what we are to use. If you discover the marker is a cenotaph, it can always be labeled and hot linked to the actual place of burial. In the case of multiple marriages like this, I usually put a note that the person is on the lot with (spouse 1) and cemetery record is under (spouse 2). If nothing else, it jogs MY memory.

Nope, not related. Just entering cemetery records. Would you like a transfer since you are related? Send me a SAC for the ones you want. Emma, husband, daughter? Other relatives? I can't do justice to all these entries. I'd rather they went to family. Judi

RE: Sarah Dorsey
Oh shoot! I should've read this earlier as I spent my lunch hour with the diocesan archivist, Fr. Morrow. Why don't you email me me all that you know and all that you want to know and I will head over to see what I can come up with!

I met with Norma/ K&N today at her gravesite and we had the city cemeteries manager join us. He confirmed that the grave is there but is unmarked. Sorry.

RE: Sarah Dorsey
I will try to get over to there this weekend to probe and see if the marker is underground because of it has an inscription, it had to exist at one point, right? Now that I see all of the other stones laying down, it is also possible that it is written on the back of one of those. Argh! I greatly dislike vandals!

RE: Sarah Dorsey
You're so very welcome! We always check thoroughly above and below ground to make sure that the headstone is not just overtaken by grass. We like to document if there is no headstone especially since the ancestor is still buried there. It is the very least we can do. :)

I have tried finding out how I came upon that memorial without any luck! :( I have added the plot information. Maybe you could request a photo of the grave and that will tell the true tale? I will keep my eyes open and see what else I can come up with.
