Bio and Links
I consider Find A Grave one of mankind's proudest achievements, up there with air conditioning and anesthesia (seriously -- it's a godsend for genealogists).

Whatever I read in non-fiction, I tend to head here quickly to see if the family has been properly documented and linked. Generally, no -- so off I go.

Always happy to help in whatever way I can -- to pay back a world of kindnesses from others' contributions.

I deleted my memorial. I don't know about a headstone for her in Oakland but most likely there's just the one with her sisters.

It is highly probable that there is NO headstone. I made the memorial from the cemetery records. I will check though when the sun melts some of the snow.

RE: Pedro Munoz
I reviewed the death date, 1910 would most likely been buried in City Cemetery. It was the main cemetery at time frame.
City records list his age as 45 yrs and born in Mexico. Not plot location listed.

RE: Pedro Munoz
Thank you for replying to clarify.
Please keep in mind there are over 25,000 burial listed for the cemetery but only about 5,000 readable headstone.
So, the person can be buried there but no headstone. City records only list plot locations for the main cemetery. There is a potters field that has no location other than potter field a section 900 ft by 100 ft. This was mainly for the poor and a large portion had not durable headstone, maybe a wood marker that rotted away.
I have photoed all or most of the readable headstones and posted them on findagrave.
Good luck with your search.
I'll be glad to help if I can.

I've had a number of things going on lately, please refresh my memory of what you requested from me. Maybe I can still help.

Laverne Prill Photo Request
I fulfilled your photo request for, Laverne Prill, today. There is a, Fairlanda, resting beside him, I assume his wife. There is an existing memorial for her ~ If you would like a photo of her grave please make a photo request with an added note similar to this.
Please, this request is specifically for Michael DeLost to post existing photos. Thank you.
Hopefully, this will deter another volunteer from claiming the request until I can add the photos. I will gladly fulfill. Mike.

RE: other Wolpin family members?
According to Mount Carmel Cemetery records Max & Ida Wolpin are the only Wolpins buried in the cemetery. You might want to inquire from your relatives as to whether Wolpin is the original family name or if it was Anglicized when they got to the USA. If the answer is yes, you might want to find out what the original name was and research from there.
