Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into family history since the 1960's. I'm grateful that I started when I did as so much family information gets lost because we don't ask questions early on.

Find a Grave is a great site and powerful resource. Thanks to all who work so hard to fulfill its primary purpose - documenting known burials.

I'm paying particular attention to Salem Memorial Park in Colma, CA. I appreciate being able to help fill in for all that information lost in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.

The site has also provided a couple of wonderful finds regarding my family history --- primarily Nancy Brenneman Gast Rhodes (check her out!). Until I found her on Find a Grave, everyone thought she died in 1852. I'm hoping to be able to provide similar breakthroughs for others.

I'm happy to make changes and links for well documented information. Please send transcriptions of obits and news articles (with name and date of the publication) rather than uploading an image of it to the photo area (this is no longer permitted by Find-a-Grave).

Permission is granted for personal use of any of the photos I have added, giving me credit for having provided them. Permission is denied for use of my photos for posting on other websites (this includes - please use Ancestry's linking option instead). Permission is denied for for sale of my photos or for any other use for monetary profit.

Edwin Shrader
I greatly appreciate all the work you do. I do have a question. According to the California, San Francisco Area Funeral Home Records, 1895-1985, Edwin Shrader (died 20 Sept 1929), father of Capt. A. J. Shrader and Martha Shrader Molinari, was buried in the Cypress Cemetery on 23 Sept 1929. I did not see him listed on the find a grave site although I saw other Shraders who had been contributed by you. Would it be possible to find out if he is indeed buried there and get a picture of his grave? Thank you!

Hi Larry,

The Alexander A. Hildebrand family headstone also names Agnes E., wife of Ernest Henry.
According to postings Agnes E. Johnson and Ernest Henry Hildebrand were married in March 4, 1933.

Are you (or anyone else) familiar with their marriage licence?

Thanks for the great photo!

anna smith
i realize that this is a finite universe of data in an infinite universe of burials... of the 322 anna smith's burried in california, there are only 4 burried in 1931 and of those only 1 burried in the bay area... i have some hope, but will need alot more research.

RE: Nathan & Esther Offenbach
Larry - your photo posting may have solved a nagging question that I've had regarding family ancestry research. I was told my great grandfather/grandmother were buried at Woodlawn so went there, walked the old Jewish area looking for their gravestones which we couldn't find - now I know why. Still have some investigating to do but this should put me on the right course. What a great help you provide. Thanks, again.

Thank you
I very recently found through church records that my 3x great grandmother had a younger brother. I took a REAL long shot tonight and entered his name and year he was born and found him (Stanton B. Miner) thanks to your post.The fact that his headstone says native of Stonington Ct. leaves no doubt for me.If you happen to be related to him let me know.This just blows me away.I refer to find a grave as Facebook for the dead.thanks again.

RE: Solomon Sagaser
OK, just trying to help. Did you read the note to you from JC about it? (LOL I still think the stones look alike, as if the children bought the same kind, divorce or not. :) Doesn't matter even if it is, I hope someone does get the whole picture for you, including the base. Happy Holidays Larry!

Thanks for catching that! Even when I enlarge the picture I can't read the age, so I deleted it. I am not the one who added spouse. Thanks again & Happy Thanksgiving!
