Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't link to "unknown burials".
I transfer to folks who seem sincerely interested in their family & friend's 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.

Hi Samantha,

I'm the only sister of Joseph Michael Spinale and want to request the management of his account. We were so close and I still miss him today.

RE: Big thank you (Elizabeth Castagnetto 44352994)
You're welcome. I'm not related, but you can transfer to me if you would like. I've been working on Merced and Mariposa County family burials for some time now and continue to update as I find more information. Thank you, Linda.

well I went back out there and definitely don't think there anything on front of Lilly monument possibly decorative gates but no writing if there was its gone now. But I figure that Charlotte and Father are not Eddy at all but Rinehart. Think everyone including me assumed they were Eddy being so closed to Lilly so I've deleted those memorials and attached the photos to the Rineharts and took a pic of the plot. I found Don Eddy in Washington btw so ask to have him link to his mother Lilly ;-) two to go and Henry yet to find. Thanks again for you help Marijo

RE: Samuel Avery
Hi Samantha,
That is exactly what I'm trying to do. I was able to make it out Saturday afternoon and am trying to add photos to all sites that don't have a grave photo. It may take me a while, but I'm currently working on Row H, which had quite a few that needed pictures. There are a few sites that I'm also trying to list the plots as well. Some are going to be just photos of the area that they are buried in. But I am trying to get it done. Hopefully within the next week or so.
Thanks for your message.

Henry Eddy
Apparently there an memorial set up Napa State Hospital Cemetery for burials 1924-1964 which were cremated and placed in mass grave in Napa Valley Memorial Park cemetery. Does California have an online death certificate site like Michigan?? so may see if he died there? Seem if Chester would had claim him would been with him or with one of other children just a thought. MJ

RE: Lillie's baby/Henry
Thank you for your input... On Henry if he was in the State Hospital died there he most likely end up in Napa Valley Memorial Park so mostly won't have an marker from what I read They were cremated and put in mass graves ;-( I sent an email so maybe be lucky Thanks again MJ
