Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't link to "unknown burials".
I transfer to folks who seem sincerely interested in their family & friends memorial.
I like to look up additional info for other people's memorials. More folks should hop off the 'flower' button and hop on a death index or the census to actually improve more memorials on the site.
Some free sites I find helpful:
CA birth index 1905-1995

CA death records 1905-1939

CA death records 1940-1997

Italian Cemetery records,

Old Newspapers

MO death certificates 1910-1964

San Francisco Mortuary index

On 28 JUL 2013 I was blessed to receive almost 45,000 abandoned memorials to work on in the Italian Cemetery in Colma, CA.
I want to thank all the photographers out there getting headstone photos on memorials so the rest of us can sit on the couch and 'visit' our relatives. You may never know just how grateful we are.
Find A Grave guideline;
How do I enter all married names for a woman's memorial when she was married more than once?
The 'last name' is the name that is on the headstone. Include other married names as part of the biography section. The 'maiden name' is only for her maiden name.

Memorial 44421198
Thank you so very much for the photo and information on my grandmother, Torida Imbroglio Tumenello. Before my mother died in 2013, she told me that my father's mother, Torida or Turrida was buried with Torida's daughter-in-law. My mother thought her name was Anna Scem???. All I know from relatives is there are two people buried in one grave, and that one of them is my grandmother, Torida. If she is buried with "her" daughter-in-law, I don't know the connection. My father's brother was Charlie Tumanello and he died in 1956. I is my understanding that he is also buried in the Italian Cemetery. My mother said, however, that Charlie never married. My father did have one other brother, but no one seems to know his name. He is also buried in the Italian Cemetery, so his last name would be Tumanello or Tumenello. Is there anyone that can verify if my grandmother Torida is buried in the same grave as a daughter-in-law, Anna Scem??? Thank you.

RE: Kilgore Cemetery
Hi Samantha. As I was taking photos of the board I noticed that I could put this type of picture in "other". However, the sun was shining on my iPhone and I couldn't read my iPhone face, so some of these were marked as "grave" rather than "other". Do you know how to correct this once the photo has been placed on the site?
PS: I'll go back down and take a picture of where she should have been buried based on the info on the board.
