Bio and Links
Bio Photo Almost lifelong resident of the Santa Clara Valley, and glad to assist those seeking grave sites in the SF Bay Area. I'm fortunate to have had the help of so many kind people across the country who have provided photos and information on the grave sites of my ancestors, and happy to do my part in return.

Please feel free to use any of the headstone or cemetery photos I have added, there's nothing proprietary about them and the goal should be to freely share our heritage to make the historical record as complete as possible for posterity.

Should any of the memorials under my care be for members of your family, just let me know and I will gladly transfer - always glad to see these memorials maintained by family, however distant in relationship. Similarly, I welcome updates to make these records more thorough. In either case, please use the "Edit" tab on the affected memorial, and then the "suggest a correction" link to send me your request or update.

Good luck in your own research and thanks in advance for your contributions to our collective, volunteer effort!

Hiegels in Alta Mesa Memorial Park
What a pleasant surprise! Thanks so much, Mark, for locating my stray Hiegel (Elizabeth, William & Terrence) family members and putting them in Alta Mesa where they belong. It was so nice of you to take photos of their crypts when I didn't even know where they were interred. You made my day!

RE: Heyde Gravestone Photos
Mark, you are very welcome for the pictures at Cape County Memorial Park. My brother, James Phillip Brantly, has a find-a-grave memorial similar to the one you created for your friend. He was killed in an automobile accident out there in Trinty County, California. Our family still supports the Humboldt Foundation which rescued his wife in that terrible accident. The person who created my brother's memorial page was kind enough to transfer it to me and I am very grateful for his input. That is what this website is all about, isn't it? We all help each other in our corner of the world. Ruth

Thanks a million for the photos. One guy said he couldn't do it w/o a plot since Alta Mesa won't help any longer. Thanks again!!!!!!!!!
