Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Stay-at-Home-mom with two little ones. 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.

Hi, it's me again...sorry..if you would like to transfer this to me also that would be great, Hulda is my Grandmother. Otherwise I can send you more of her information. I hope transferring these are a problem, I really don't mean to make more work for you. I really appreciate that you have taken an interest and did the research to add my family members to the site. Thanks a million!
