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.

Thanks for Maris E. White photo
Thank you for responding so quickly to my request for a photo of Maris's grave marker. My initial relationship to him is first cousin once removed. Then his father and my dad's mother married when their respective spouses died and my dad, Nyal Maris Mullins, and Maris White became step-brothers. Thanks again.

Myrtle Radach was my cousin - Helmuth & Alverne Radachs daughter. I didn't know if she was buried there or not. I would like to have a photo of her marker also.

Thank you so much, Ophelia Radach Stafford

Sorry, I just found about his memorial this morning just after you posted his wife's photo. I have already overdone my requests for the week. I won't be around to post a request for two weeks going forward at this point. His memorial # is 138803957. Again thanks, Russell

Many thanks for the quick reply on Millie! Did you run out there this morning? By any chance did you see or take a photo of her husband Paul Joseph DODGE? I just found out today, someone else created a memorial about a week ago for him. #138863957. Again thanks, and in advance, Russell

I misspelled my Aunts Name. My typing is not what it used to be.

RE: thankyou!
Oh my gosh what an angel you are!
My wording get screwed up with the AutoCorrect on my phone I'd rather communicate with my laptop later on early this evening.
would you mind using my yahoo email then it's easier and also confidential :-)

would you email me with your email address and it's easier to put it all in an email and I don't want all my personal stuff going on here for everyon what a gem you are someone stole the file cabinet that I had seven years of genealogy done with a cousin that passed away that had a membership so there's some important documents I'd like to get
I will wait for your email so I can tell you what I'm looking for and thank you so much!e to see anyway
