Bio and Links
I was born and raised in Iowa, but have called CA home for over 25 years.
I am new to family history research, but I am hooked!
I recently made some connections on Find A Grave and am quickly learning what a great tool it is in searching through family history.
I also discovered I have a passion for indexing (and photographing) local cemeteries. If we all do our part, the information each of us needs will be right at our fingertips.
Thank you to those responsible for this fabulous website. What an incredible tool and service you provide!

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.

Vierra in Calvary Catholic Cemetary
Thank you so much for finding and photographing my 3rd Great grandfather and grandmother. Rollin J Vierra and Paulsena Vierra. Very emotional to see after so long searching. I wonder if there were any other members of the Vierra family in that plot or cemetary? I cannot find any but one and they all lived in the same area. So much undocumented information and the parents Vierra immigrated from the Azores, Portugal and so the trail ends with this photo. If you saw or took any other photos of Vierra I would love to know. All lived around Salinas, Monterey, CA.
Many many thanks,
Jessie Vierra West

Becky, Thanks for adding so many names for this cemetery. Always good to do a search and get real results. I found a Mantes couple you had entered that are the parents of someone I was researching in Nevada. Thanks and keep up the good work. Steve
