Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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. Unless they are in my Virtual Family Cemetery, THEN I HAVE NO INFORMATION ON THE PEOPLE OF THE MEMORIALS THAT I MAINTAIN OTHER THAN THEIR BURIAL LOCATION.

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 via the "EDIT" option. (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.

Lillian Teresa Yaag

Lillian is my wife's great grandmother and we are actively researching the family history. Are you related to her? I would love to connect and share some of the information that I have found.

Harry Preston Keefer
I am trying to verify that Harry Preston Keefer in this memorial is Harry Keefer who married, and later divorced Helen Leatha Halls. If you can verify this, I would greatly appreciate it. He was born in Chicago and I believe they would have married there before moving to CA.

Anna T Kastenbaum Cherry d-1980
My husband might be related to Anna T Kastenbaum Cherry who passed away in 1980. Could you tell me who her parents are? I have Elias Kastenbaum and Rachel Herman. Do we have a match? I am working on his family tree with Kastenbaum family on it. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.
