Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Stay-at-Home-mom with two little ones. I have always taken an interest in family tree histories. My father was an avid fan of Find a Grave and he introduced me to this site before he passed away in 2008. Find A Grave Memorial# 46644773. I am happy to be a photo volunteer for much of the Los Angeles area!

You can feel free to use creative commons with the photos I take if you'd like to use them in your genealogy or family history projects.

-I have recently acquired many of the memorials for Hollywood Forest Lawn. I am happy to help with transfers and edits, but please be COURTEOUS and thorough if you have an inquiry or concern. I am a volunteer.

I LOVE to find relatives and homes for the memorials I manage, so IF you see a memorial you'd like TRANSFERRED, I'm more then happy to do so, just put in the request. (Will transfer ANY except those in my Family Virtual Cemetery). ***Also, to expedite edits please use the EDIT tab that Find a Grave has recently provided in the upper right hand corner of all memorials. "Suggested corrections" should be used for transfer requests or other edits that are not options under the EDIT tab.***

Please note, when listing random memorials, I often try to link families together to the best of my ability, using my judgment and common sense. So, I imagine some of the relationship links I have created may not be accurate and I'm always happy to update or change if you can help.
Please do not send me requests to change the entry of MAIDEN name for Males whose name origin indicates that they are LATINO. This name is often their mother's maiden name and used for lineage purposes. Maybe a suggestion would be for Find A Grave to add an entry space for this.

My family lines are Schmidt/Wassem and Johnsen/Hale. My husband's family lines are Alves/Carvalho and Bacellar/Huet.

Dear Carolyn,
I'm not quite sure why you declined my edit. The reason I was given was that "Content submitted does not belong in this data field."
However, I disagree. The data field I gave was "marker transcription." His Hebrew name is included in the marker in Hebrew. All I did was translate the Hebrew for non-Hebrew readers. Please further clarify your decision to omit the Hebrew part of his marker.
Thanks,
Shari

Keeping in touch
Hey Carolyn, Just a note to say hi, long time since we connected here. I trust all is well and you are enjoying no more school!! I received an edit, today, and noticed you had posted photos. It was a memorial I created from a list so I did not have a photo. It was of a niche in the section that faces Freedom Mausoleum. The photo of the wall with the statue was very nice!! As was the tablet. I just noticed that you suddenly managing 100,000+ memorials. Wow.....James

Pauline Powers (85928859)
Pauline Powers (85928859) is incorrectly linked to J.C. Powers (85928843) as a spouse. This is incorrect. They were brother and Sister. J. C. was divorced - his ex-wife was Helen Widmeyer. They were divorced when their children were very young.

Memorial Transfer
Hi Carolyn, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind transfering my great grandfather to me. I'm trying to collect my direct Schmidt family line. Thank you for your time and efforts.
