|Bio and Links|
I developed an interest in genealogy after a family reunionit started with just my family, and now extends beyond. In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined spending so much time in cemeteries photographing headstones throughout Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties. I hope my contribution helps you.|

Find a Grave's Naming Conventions
If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation. A period should be used after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial. No other punctuation should be used within any Name Field. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used in any Name Field. Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.
Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.
Nickname of deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes.
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and should only be used if the individual was married and took the spouse's surname as their new surname. If the deceased was never married, then the surname should be placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.
How should I enter a memorial when I am uncertain how many are buried in the grave?
There should be one memorial per person. Please do not create a family/group memorial. Instead each known person should have an individual memorial. They should be listed as:
Middle: Twin Son or Daughter
California Birth Index
California Digital Collection
Abbreviations & Acronyms
If you are abusive I will report you.
