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. Until I found her on Find a Grave, our family 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 images of them to the photo area (this is no longer permitted by Find-a-Grave). Also, please note that "cut and paste" or transcribed census reports are NOT a bio. Data will be put into proper fields. If you want more, please write a few narrative sentences.

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 (for - please use their linking option instead). Permission is denied for for sale of my photos or for any other use for monetary profit.

Minerva Hartman's stone
Thanks for bringing it to my attention the addition of the stone. I did indeed re-organize the photos so that's at the top, thanks!

Hi Larry, I just requested an edit on the husband of my great-aunt. You also manage his parents sites 159447326 and 159446651. I have the death index showing his mother's maiden name misspelled and fathers last name but you have him already listed by name (not link) in the parents memorials. Also in the photos the stones are all grouped. I couldn't find an email address to send you any documentaion of the family connection. Please connect him with the rest of his family. Thanks, Mike

Goodman Brodofsky
Hi Larry, you posted a photo for Goodman's brother Max in Salem Memorial Park and Garden in Section 5G. Goodman Brodofsky is in Block 5, Section G, Grave 139. There is no entry on Find A Grave. I wonder if you might have an image. I am inquiring for his 96-year-old granddaughter. Many thanks, Barbara Stack

Thanks for the photo!
Thank you very much for taking the photo of Edwin Blumenthal's grave. The marker next to his is for his older brother, Sidney, whose Find A Grave page I also manage. I see that I didn't get all the brothers linked, though, so I'll try to fix that now.

Transfer request
Hi Larry,

Would you be able to transfer 162638470 and 162638544 over to me? These are my 2nd great grandparents and I am attempting to link them to my other family members.

Many thanks in advance!
