Sharing and helping each other to discover the unknowns about family history with gravesite photos and research.

Angel Babies Memorial Project

Originally started by Jim Murray in New York, I expanded the Angel Babies Memorial Project to Miami. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants & children who died in Miami and link them genealogically to their families. Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.
Please visit the Angel Babies Memorial Project of New York City and St. Louis, Mo.

My Situation:

Enjoy the wide open spaces of Dona Anna and Sierra County, NM. Born in Heidelberg Germany on a military base. Raised in France,Florida, New York, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania. Lived in Las Cruces, New Mexico since October, 2011.

Bostroff-Vista memory Gardens
Paul- I have a request.. I have a letter from the son of William and Dora Bostroff who are buried in Vista. He lives in PA and has no email. He is requesting a photo of their stone.. I will happily go take another for them but I would like to ask you first if I can use your photo and put your name on it as the taker? I have been ill, taking chemo and just dont have much energy, so this would be appreciated if I can use your photo.

Frederick Palow
Hi Paul,
I sent you the information on Frederuck's date of death as well as his obituary

RE: Augustus Palow
You're very welcome. And although the cemetery records do not show his burial date, there is a notation that he was 74 when he died. Not much, but a place to start looking for death records.

Henry Colvin duplicated 5 times

Just to let you know that you have duplicated Henry Colvin's page 5 times.

Since there isn't an easy way to eliminate duplicates - pages by two different contributors, I, at least, try to notify contributors who make their own duplicates when I come across them.

RE: Hot Springs Cemetery T or C
Thanks Paul I will make a list, as I saved my edit requests. I appreciate it very much.

RE: Elizabeth Twist
You're very welcome...I didn't see any little markers in the ground around her tho :-( I do agree with you about the dad to tho, I think he is there. I think because he died last no one had his info carved in the marker. There is room at the top of the marker left blank right where his info should be.

Hot Springs Cemetery T or C
Paul, I have sent requests to you the past year several times about duplicate memorials.. The Find A Grave rules say that the earliest date the memorial was published has the priority and duplicates added after that date must be removed. I know (and appreciate) that you have photos on some of these memorials, but you need to take the time to move those to the previously created memorials.. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. I live in T or C and have maintenance over the memorials here since P Barela is non-responsive.. Lets work together to keep our information accurate and abide by the Find A Grave guidelines... Any questions, comments or concerns can be directed to me personally at I am also the president of the local genealogy society.

RE: Catherine Twist
Can you send me a copy? My email is on my profile. I want to be sure it's the right Catherine Twist. Are you related? She was my mother's sister.
