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.

Transfer Request - Memorial # 74571704
Hello Carolyn,

It would mean a lot to me to manage the memorial of Ole G. Lee - Memorial # 74571704 . (He is the brother of my 2nd great grandfather.) Would you mind transferring him to me?

My member number is: 47067187

Thank you!

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.

maybe you need to transfer the memorial back to me, and maybe then I can delete it. Lets try that.

Memorial# 131640607 should be deleted and you should make a new memorial for Dr Andersson (unless he exists elsewhere). The search engine does not even give results that link properly to this memorial 131640607

messed up memorial
continued..... Memorial# 131640607 does not even have the right name on it. It should have the name William Shannon Pratt. Anyways, I am just going to transfer it to you and you can delete it or do whatever you like. I'm going to create a new one. Find a Grave sure made a mess that weekend on quite a few memorials.
Take care,

mixed up pictures and links
continued ... the memorial I created, Memorial# 131640607 , is in the military section of this particular Canadian cemetery, so the gravestone should be similar to the standard U.S. military gravestone, except larger.

photos and memorials mixed up
Hi, a few weeks ago Find a Grave was messing up where some photos were being posted and other things were getting messed up too. It seems one of your photos was posted to a cemetery in Winnipeg, Canada. The name matches, but the death date is different by about 5 years. This is Memorial# 131640607 . When I click on his wife, it goes to a California cemetery. When I look at his wife's memorial, some other name is listed as the husband, but when I click on it, it leads back to Mr Andersson in Canada. Its quite a mess. Maybe you have a better idea about the way it should be than I do.

Thank you so much for trying to photograph their graves!!! I am perplexed, because I attended their funerals and that cemetery was printed on their memorial cards! Sorry to send you on a wild goose chase, but grateful for the info! Happy 4th to you! Nan
