Bio and Links
Bio Photo "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God."

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.
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 doing photo requests 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.

Please be kind to Photo Volunteers! We are out there in all kinds of weather in a variety of conditions to find your friend's/relative's graves. We are not after a Pulitzer Prize and sometimes even our best effort may produce a not-so-good photo. If any of my photos are not to your liking, please leave me a message and I will try to get a better one. I will not be offended.

NOTE: Due to the uncalled-for accusation by another unhappy contributor, I feel the need to make this statement: All photos that I have posted on Find a Grave ARE photos that I have taken myself, or, in the case of a few portrait photos, I received permission to use them and it is so stated in the photo's caption. Photos that I've posted of cemetery gates, signs, statues, buildings, points of interest, mausoleums, etc. that have been added to a cemetery's profile page were ALL taken by me and were given to the Admins of this site for posting if they chose to do so. Family photos are all photos that are in my possession, taken by me or immediate family members who are no longer living. I have never lifted photos from other websites so if you see photos on other websites that have been posted by me to Find a Grave, those photos were lifted from this site and used without my permission. I have only given permission to others to copy headstone photos, not any other type of photo.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of approximately 25,000 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: CA or AZ?
Thanks for the kind words. Actually, we live in Arizona but make trips to the LA area two or three times a year (I grew up there). We always spend two or three full days taking photos because LA has so many undocumented cemeteries. In Phoenix we only have one large historic cemetery that hasn't been completely photographed plus one medium sized. We've got about 500 more photos for Inglewood and then we're done until next trip. Probably not until April or May.

Thank you so much for the photo! I will see if I can find any more info on Annie L. Verner. I do have him listed with a 1st wife named Clonie, born in Texas about 1916. I do know he married Annie in Los Angeles County on 17 May 1974.

RE: Laverne Webb
Thanks so much for all of your incredible work, and thanks for this input.
It is a little bewildering - the number locations at IPC and more than once I've experienced the inability to locate a grave, based on the plot numbers.
Really appreciate your input and work.

RE: Gladys Bummer photo request.
No they did not tell me the grave was unmarked but I will contact them again. Thank you.

RE: Laverne Webb
Thank you B.J. Perhaps we have two La Verne Webb graves at IPC, as there is now a photo of the headstone for the one I was searching.

See Memorial #161574712

Best regards

RE: Nicholas Goodman
You are so kind to have tried. So this is where he was buried, but no headstone? If Ii went there they could tell me the plot?
