Sepulchrum: Graves, tombs, sepulchers.
Regarding transfers: PLEASE read Find A Graves policy on transfers before you ask for a memorial to be transferred. We have found several memorials transferred to someone claiming to be a relative only to find nothing done with updating, or adding pertinent information. You can add photos. You can correct/add information. Use the edit button, or add photos button. Thank you.
We started out just two guys who have an interest in genealogy and old things.
One of us (Eric) has relatives at Multnomah Park, the other (David) is repaying a debt to genealogists who supplied him with a huge amount of information from Sweden.
We have listed most of the graves in this large public cemetery, which contains over 12,000 residents. We have not, and probably will not, list the most recent burials in the cemetery because of privacy concerns. The 'death' dates for people may be their burial dates. We are working off Metro's data base which gives the burial date of the deceased up until the 1970's.
The data base supplied to us by Metro, the current managing agency for Multnomah Park, has a lot amount of unknowns, and that's where the X's come in. IF you see an "X" in the plot information it means it is unknown in the data base that we have nearly finished transcribing and entering for all people to see and use. Note that Metro inherited the records from another agency who inherited them from a previous owner, who in turn inherited them from previous owners.
Check out Metro's webpage for Multnomah Park Cemetery: http://www.oregonmetro.gov/index.cfm/go/by.web/id=12692
If you have any information on any of the residents of Multnomah Park, please use the new correction on FindAGrave to let us know. It is much quicker and easier for us - and will get done sooner than the 'old' way.
Please make sure you have the right person, not just a person with the same name.
We have added some people to the Multnomah Park Cemetery online FAG database even though they do not appear in the online Metro Pioneer cemeteries database. We have done so because their death certificate and/or Oregonian funeral notice indicates they were buried there. The burial location will be noted as: "unknown - does not appear in cemetery records." These people may be buried elsewhere. We don't know, and the death certificate information is not always reliable.
We are making periodic trips to the state archives in Salem to make copies of Death Certificates. We do update information with data from the various death certificates - when we have the time. We have, but generally do not post the certificates on FAG. If you would like one please inquire. Driving an hour to Salem to copy documents in the state archives is beyond what is a normal volunteer activity - especially with the price of gas.
Thank you, David and Eric.

|Jim Easom||grave picture|
Thank-you very much for the grave marker picture for Alfred Johnson in Multnomah Park Cemetery in Portland, OR. I appreciate it.
|bvandervos||Esper Greathouse Photo|
Thank you for taking the time to photograph Esper's memorial stone. I greatly appreciate all the work you had your friend have been doing with respect to this cemetery. It is a lot of work, but know that many many descendants truly appreciate what you are doing.
|SM French||George Neal Photo Request|
Appreciate the photo submission you added the George's memorial. It was helpful in verifying the birth and death dates which were inaccurate. Thanks, SMFrench
|Sharon Neumann ||Looking for Albert Neumann|
I am searching for Albert Theodor Neumann. I believe I found his wife, Lidia, here through my Ancestry search. Lidia is listed as Lidia Newman. Not sure why the last name is misspelled. She is at Multnomah Park Cemetery. Her gravesite is designated as Plot b, 102, 2...which I'm hoping Albert is beside her, in #1. Her Memorial in findagrave.com is #50670486.
Would love your help to see if he is there as well.
I will appreciate anything you can find for me.
Thanks so much,
Sharon Neumann #48341862

Thank you so much for making the effort to try and get a photo of his headstone. I've made a note of the issues that you encountered. You may want to make a note of it on his main page so that others don't request photos in the future as well.
