Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a fun and interesting hobby for me, as well as a great way to perform a meaningful community service to others. Someday I hope to have more free time to devote to it. Yes, I'm in it for the numbers! The more memorials that are on this site, the better chance of people finding relatives. That's what this is all about.

In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will make exceptions if I am personally doing work for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. FIND A GRAVE ADMINISTRATORS SUPPORT THIS POLICY. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

I will not cut and paste raw data from census records, death indices, etc. A nicely written bio is preferable.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

RE: Paula Jean Peckenpaugh
Yes, I do. Bray was stepfather. I will write up something to clarify it on her memorial. Thank you so much for photographing her marker, and Happy Fourth to you and yours. Kathlene

RE: Ownership of site.
Sorry I was told was owned by Mormons. I guess the company was founded by Mormons. The company was bought out.

RE: James Olding photo request
James, Thank you for your efforts to fulfill requests, especially hard to fill requests. Adding the picture of area of his burial is great. And yes, Paradise is a town in the foothill with a canyon on each side, one of which we sometimes call the little grand canyon. Aside from the drought, it is a great town in which to live.
