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!

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.

-I have recently acquired many of the memorials for Hollywood Forest Lawn. I am happy to help with transfers and edits, but please be COURTEOUS and thorough if you have an inquiry or concern. I am a volunteer.

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. (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.

RE: Fermon Gordon
Hi Carolyn ... You are so kind in how you wrote your reply ... Yes, I was trying to and am requesting the transfer 'back' of my family memorial into my care. It made no sense to me that it was removed. Your reply shed some light on what could have happened.

Fermon Gordon was transferred to me a year ago by Chris Mills as F. J. Gordon. In May I made the photo request because there was no photo. I didn't create a duplicate and didn't see one or I would have looked into it because I don't want the problems of duplicates.

I prefer not to surmise, but this is my thought ... There could have been a duplicate. The additional photo could be an indicator. My memorial and the duplicate were then merged. The duplicate is gone and my memorial is what you ended up with. When I was asking to have it returned to me, it does make sense, it made no sense to you. You didn't know it had previously been my memorial.

Take Care ...

Hello, Carolyn, I am searching for a dear acquaintance from years ago, and I have found a Nazy and you, being the contact person, can you help me? As I write to you. you may want me to send you a picture which I will have to look up for you. I have often wondered where she is, and have beautiful memories of her with the Harrison's. This will be very special to our family. I am sorry I lost track of her, and tonite I have a friend here helping me! She was from the Los Angeles area and natively from Iran. I know she did some special nursing.

My name is Janet Crane. I live In Washington State. The last address that she gave me I recently found! It was 15916 VanOwen St. Unit No. 205 Van Nuys California 91406 and phone no...818-780-7894.

I found this information below on the internet and I am wondering if that could be her.

Birth: Jun. 5, 1950
Death: Mar. 23, 1999

Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Hollywood Hills)
Los Angeles
Los Angeles County
California, USA
Plot: Lincoln Terrace, Lot 4546, Space 3

Thank you so much for helping .

RE: Alviine Hiir
I -later- saw another Alviine, and decided to leave it. With (very) foreign names it is hard to tell.
If there is a gravestone photo I generally check what spelling it has - and even that may be wrong.
Thanks for letting me know.
