I will have limited computer access during May. I will make all updates as time allows.

When I walk a cemetery, I make a note of other nearby relatives, the section/area I am in and include it in my transcriptions. When you are researching a 'John Smith', it helps to know if there are other 'Smith' names next to him. It is very helpful having any plot information.
Some cemeteries restrict photo taking by non-family members. Having any plot information helps all of the photo volunteers.
When I first started, I just wrote down names without photos. Now I take photos of all of the headstones.

Quite often I find myself researching the folks that I create memorials for, adding additional information and linking as many as I can locate.

As time allows, I am willing to do some Oregon obituary research for others. This is my form of 'Pay It Forward'.

I will make corrections/additions to any memorial that I have created.

All requests are verified before I change the memorial.

Cindy Louise
Memorial # 38362072

My name is Cindy and I wondered if you could tell me how to add a story about my dad, LaVern Robert Davis to his memorial page. I added pictures, although one is sideways, not sure why it came out that way....

If you could let me know how to add his story or his obituary to his memorial page please let me know.

Ann, it appears that the Fisher monument photo is posted on Ella Larson's page. Can you fix this? Thanks for all your recent work!

Francis Minturn
Dear Ann,

my name is Erwin de Mooij and I am the content webmaster for the 457th Bomb Group Association website.

At this moment I am working on a virtual cemetery/memorial on the website honering all 339 KIA/MIA/KIS of the group.

I saw your picture of Francis Minturn's grave marker and I was wondering if I could use it for the memorial. If you made any other photos of 457th BG members would I be able to use these too?

Because this is a veterans website I will not be able, out of respect, to give every photo a credit. The only credit with a photo goed out to the person who died. I will have a thank you for findagrave and all it's contributers and photographers at the bottem of the page. Is that alright with you?

We would greatly appreciate it.

Best regards,

Erwin de Mooij

RE: Wilson, Lewis 95240978
That would be nice. I'm not related, but we were friends. At least that's a bit closer until a family member comes along and I can transfer it to them.

Thank you,

Lewie was a friend of mine. I submitted an edit for his DOB per his headstone.
