Bio and Links
November, 2015
I will have limited computer access during November. 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.
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.

Brian A. Salvo #107317452
Hi Ann, I am confused, I hope you can help.
Brian A. Salvo is my 1st Cousin 1x removed. He is located at grave 104. This marker photo you took is on grave 106 for A Lynch. I was wondering is there a marker for Brian A. Salvo ?

Thanks, Jennifer

RE: Holy Cross - Colma
Hi Ann!

There is no Row 22A that I have ever been able to find, and I have looked each time I go there, just in case I missed something, so that I could help you. Is it possible for you to call/email the cemetery and ask them EXACTLY where Row 22A is supposed to be? If you can and you can relay it to me, I could take a photo next time I'm up there, definitely! I live an hour south (one way), but Kenny and I go up on weekends when it's not raining like crazy or freezing cold. There is one other photo request for a friend of mine for Row 22A as well, so I'd sure like to know where it is!

RE: Stonehocker
Not sure if you are the one who said you could look up or told me how to find death information for Washington state. I'm looking for a Bernard James O'Rourke B: 11 Apr 1929 Livingston, MT and D: 09 Jul 2002 Seattle, WA
Edward O'Rourke and Winnifred D McGurk.

Any information you can pass on to me would be appreciated.

Dear Ann,

Thank you for creating a memorial for my aunt Patty (132003595). I was wondering if you might add her parents, who are both also buried in Belcrest. Her father was Gerald Holmes Davis, 76777839, and mother, Beatrice Luella Livingston Davis, 61594417. Thanks.

I really appreciate the time you have taken to provide information about my Great Grandfather. However, he was born in Ohio, not Oklahoma. I would appreciate it if you could correct it.
Thanks so much!

I am so grateful to have found a memorial for my great aunt, Bertha A Burgess. However, her birth year is 1881. In speaking with the person at Belcrest Memorial Park, he assures me this is my great aunt and that her birth year is listed as 1881. Her husband is Edward Burgess, memorial # 148742076.

Thank you so much,
