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!

I've always liked to take photos and go to cemeteries, so this is a perfect past time for me! I LOVE to find relatives and homes for the memorials I make, 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.***

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.

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.

RE: Wrong pic on memorial
About 3 years ago at Los Angeles National. I walked down the hill toward the cremation building and you walked up and we met there. Tell me I am not totally bonkers here!?!?!? I think I told you before we met that I was a 60 year old Gay man and you said that made your hubby feel better(lol)

Tombstone Photos
I really appreciate the tombstone photographs you took and posted on the memorials for George and Linnie Fae Malott. I live in the St. Louis, Missouri area and cannot travel to visit the graves myself.

I know Corliss Palmer was his oldest sister. That is mother Julia Alma Farrell remarried James M. Simone:

Your father was born James Calvin Simone. He took on his mother's 1st husband married name Palmer.

Thank you for letting me know about the headstone missing for my Aunt Christine in Forest Lawn. It's only been a month since her burial - so maybe I was premature. I will do another request at a later date. Thank You Caroline !
