Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Stay-at-Home-mom with two little ones and a grad student. 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, I try to get to edits as quickly as I can, but that doesn't always happen. I'm a busy gal. Please if you want the transfer, ask and you can make the changes at your leisure.***

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.

Your entry for William Netzela shows his mother as Rose and father as Peter. The Rose and Peter that you have linked lived in California in 1989 at the time of William's death. Rose was not in Camdenten as stated in the obituary. In fact Rose and Pete married in 1949 and never had any children. Pete did have a brother Albert who lived in Sunrise Beach and had a wife named Rose - perhaps William was their son.
Please check into this. Thanks, Linda Traina

Grave photo for Morris Wexler
Thank you so much for providing the grave pic for his memorial. Also thanks for the wide shot of the grave area, it helped me realize that other family members are buried there as well.
