Bio Photo Please check out my WWII virtual cemeteries!

If you have any photo requests available, please make a few, as at the 20 per week rate, it will take me 10 years to get my 60,000 WWII KIA entries completed.

If you see incorrect entries or duplicates (dups usually from the Findgrave crashmaster)...let me know asap!!! If you would like me to transfer a memorial, I will transfer them.

Hey Shane, just to let ya know ... I'm still working on him. :-) Difficult one for sure. Not him but the others with him are proving difficult.

Thanks for the updates to this and other memorials you have done on my behalf. I was able to complete research on birth records on most of my veterans today, however there are a few that I'm stumped on. Also, I have a couple that I have not set up memorials for as I can't find any information on them except that their names appear on the Chisholm memorial tablet. If I set them up are you able to access military records that I'm not aware of? I am going to contact the commander of the American Legion as I'm sure that my dad had collected information & photos.

I printed out your memorials for St. Louis County, Minnesota and have located quite a few of the graves. When I get to Minnesota this spring I'll photo the markers & upload them to the memorials.

Thanks again for you help!

Harding Yates

I went to photograph his stone today, but could not locate it. He may be buried in another Yates cemetery in Clintwood, VA.

RE: Claude Smith
Thanks for the compliment. I agree with you....a lot of photos just are not the best they can be with the volunteers just clicking away without checking the pic they took. I am starting to request a 2d pic for some of them (blue tint and fuzzy).

Re: Gregory Regnier
I received an edit request from you to remove the memorial for my uncle. He was buried in Belgium during the war and we have records that verify that. If you will notice, on his memorial there is a note indicating that he was removed and interred at his final resting place and the memorial that documents that grave. I do not intend to remove either of the memorials. He was buried in each place and deserves a place in both. Thank you for you suggestion, but it is important to us, his family, that where he rested is honored as well as he, himself.

RE: Clayton Lee Adams
If the memorials are merged, who will managed the single memorial? The contributor who created the original doesn't respond when I have asked info to be added to his memorials. The contributor who created the "duplicate" not only recorded the historical info provided by a soldier who saw Clayton's temporary grave soon after his death, but he also added the information about my father. Even though I am a relative, I am not within the Find A Grave guidelines, so it wouldn't be transferred to me. So, for these reasons, I'd rather have the duplicates.

Please copy the obit info to his original memorial -- I had found the obit to add and the memorial that it is attached to was transferred to me (assumed it was the original memorial)

My veterans virtual cemeteries
Hi Shane:

I've just put together virtual cemeteries for all the major conflicts on my profile page, so feel free to take a look. I don't have them separated by served or KIA--there's far too many for me to do them that way, and I just don't have the time. I'm adding to them as I go along, so feel free to check back.

Happy Holidays,

Leander M. Young
Shane I have one I could use some help on. Leander M. Young died in World war II he was from Grand island Nebraska and I found him buried in South Dakota Find A Grave #106389154. I am trying to prove his father Find A Grave #50510757 same name was killed in World War I in 1918 in France. Not used to working on World War I heroes do you have any leads. Thanks . If my hunch is right the son was born the same year his Father was killed. Thanks for any help you can give me. Loren

Ernest A Rydeen
Find A Grave Memorial# 37233186

A poster (with some very poor pictures) of Mr Rydeen's canteen during WWII is at my local VA Hospital. I also found an article about Mr Rydeen on line (

Was going to post both, but album size is maxed out with the 5 photos that are on his memorial.

Please let me know if you'd like these items for addition to his memorial.
