Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave allows me the opportunity to combine my interest in genealogy and history with my need to get a (very little) bit of exercise.

I will gladly transfer management of any memorial that is not one of my family members. None of the memorials I've created in the San Antonio area are family members. Please let me know if you would like to assume management of any memorial I have created for your family member or close friend.

The photos I have posted on Find A Grave are intended to help document family histories. You have my permission to reproduce any of my photos for your personal, non-commercial use provided you treat the deceased and their memorials with respect.

Minjares Family
Please transfer Francisco Minjares (#103507911). He was my grandmother's brother. Can you also have Juanita Jett Cantu (#93785922) transferred. Juanita's mother is Delfina Hernandez Minjarez and her half siblings are Francisco Minjares, Bertha Minjares Travieso and Lidia Minjares Fierros.

According to Francisco's Death Certificate, he was born on 10 Dec 1913 in San Antonio, Texas. His birth record has not been verified.

RE: Minjares
Hi. Yes, please transfer Delfina and Pedro to me. I hope I am making a good contribution to this site. I will try my best to confirm all information I input. There are others I would also like transferred to me. I will let you know as I find them. I don't know any other way to do it. Any suggestions.

RE: Memorials Mary Magdalene Cemetery Brackettville
Hello Mel,

Yes, you would need to pack a large cut-lunch to drive down to Brackettville to check it out for me.
Although I might add that the next largest town from where I live is almost a full thousand miles from here, in the same 'State'(actually a 'Territory'), so I understand distances very well.

I will try to locate someone in or near Brackettville. In the meantime thanks a lot for your help Mel. But for your posting I may never have found their place of burial. Regards, Kev.

Memorials Mary Magdalene Cemetery Brackettville
Hello Mel,

On 13th and 14th of Feb 2013 you added memorials for Ellen Riordan and her brother John Mellifont. (My mother's maiden name was Mellifont) Could you please tell me if these are two seperate memorials or are their respective names shown on different face-panels on just one memorial? I cannot read the inscription on the John Mellifont panel. Next time you are in that area would you mind transcribing the wording on that panel and on the lower panel, where it looks like there might be additional words.
I am assuming you live in Kinney County. If so, could you please tell me where I could apply for full death certificates for Ellen and John.

Not sure if you need anything done in Australia, but I would be happy to help find things for you.

Regards, Kev Young

Hi Mel, transfers are done. I try to connect family any chance I get, and it doesn't matter how close or how far apart the family link may be. So if you come across any other family members of yours I've listed,just let me know and I'll gladly transfer them .

RE: Lamberts
I'll let you know if I find any other relatives of mine. I couldn't have gotten the inscription w/o your excellent photo. Took a chance and "Googled-it" and found where they had taken the poem from. Pretty neat! All the best and thanks again. Tom
