Bio and Links
Bio Photo A bit about me:

I'm a first-generation Californian whose ancestors were among the earliest founders and patriots of the great country that became the United States of America.

A distant cousin, Edgar J. Bullard, once wrote, "To preserve details about our ancestors from wasting records and fast-decaying monuments is the privilege and the meed of those who compile family histories." I couldn't agree more.

I've been a serious genealogist since 1994. Some here at Find a Grave insist that Find a Grave is not a genealogical tool. The rest of us know that it IS a useful genealogical tool (generally), like it or not. As such, I believe that memorials should contain accurate information. If I manage one that needs correction, just send me an edit request or contact me and I'll fix it.

I am not a memorial hoarder. I am always willing to transfer memorials for individuals that are not in my own family tree to someone else who is related. You need not be within the four-generation direct line guideline for me to transfer a memorial to you.

East Gate Cemetery
Hi Eliza,
I am looking for East Lawn Cemetery - South Gate, I notice you took the photo for East Gate in California. Do you know if this is the same cemetery? I want to build a memorial for a distant relative but certainly want to put him in the correct cemetery. Thank you.

Hello Eliza,

I just posted a picture of Walter VanDerBogart and his wife Sarah Ann Nims VanDerBogart. My in-laws just sent over some pictures they had of the family and it included the picture of the VanDerBogarts. Love putting a face to a name!

You're welcome. I found a stone for Frank and Sadie
Georgie and created memorials, which I linked to Charles via the Edit.

okey dokey

Please call 650-755-0580 and get the grave location and add to the memorial so that we can get you some photos.

Or, contact the cemetery office via email in order to obtain the grave location.

Please post to the memorial or Send a Correction to the memorial owner
so that it can be added.
Once you have done this then it will be an easy matter for us to go out and get your request fulfilled.
