Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm on Find-A-Grave to honor my dead ancestors and help others find lost connections. I have a large family tree online elsewhere, and just a tiny percentage of the people are on FAG, so if you have any questions about the memorials I maintain, just ask.

If you send me an update through Suggest an Edit I will do my best to address it within 48 hours. If you send me new info I will credit you as the source in the bio. If you are related closer than I am (describe the relationship) I will transfer when asked.

There are many, many helpful people on Find-A-Grave. If you're looking at my bio, you are probably one of the helpful ones, so thank you!

Thanks for reading and contributing!

Hi! Regarding your photo request, can you please contact the cemetery and obtain the Section, Lot, and Grave Number information, and then post it to your request? Please also ask if there is a grave marker and add that information to your photo request and/or memorial. The Find A Grave FAQs state the photo requestor is responsible to provide this information.

Elmwood Cemetery: (708) 453-0273

This cemetery provides extremely limited assistance to photo volunteers with finding a grave's location. Last year I was able to fulfill almost 200 photo requests at Elmwood through this process. Because the lots in this cemetery are poorly marked, almost no one else ever photographs here. I have only had success here because I have spent literally weeks at a time to learn the intricacies of the layout of this cemetery.

Thank you for helping me to help you.

Hi! In regards to your photo requests, can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Oakridge-Glen Oak Cemetery: 708-344-5600

Oakridge-Glen Oak is a huge cemetery with well over 30,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there and take a photo of a grave. I go here regularly, and I should be able to take a picture shortly after receiving the grave location.

Thank you! Ace

Swift markers in Evergreen
Hi Marilyn,

I finished treating the markers for Walter Swift and his wife Clara and uploaded new photos. If you don't mind, I'm leaving the original marker photos there for contrast to show how well the D/2 Biological Solution product works.

Back at Hillside
Hi Marilyn
I checked again today to see if Opal and Lloyd Back are at Hillside and they are not. The next time I go to the library to look up obituaries I will look for them and maybe we can find them for you
