Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Cleveland, OH native who has always loved old cemeteries.
I am a big reader, I love antiques and I collect stereoscope cards and antique postcards. I have many of cemeteries.

If I "have" a family member of yours, I'll be pleased to give you management. It's so exciting to find things you are looking for! :)

It irks me to no end when people here treat memorials like their personal property - like memorials are trading cards to collect and hoard. I am *always* happy to transfer, except when the person is my own relative (and no one is closer) or ones I have a special interest in. Even those I would fork over to a relative of any distance! LOL

I have even transfered to non-relatives with a special interest in the deceased.

PHOTO NOTE: I did not take the photos of Brooklyn Hts Cemetery in Cleveland. They were ALL originally transcribed and photographed by a very nice lady, Susanna Pretzer. She was completing a project to earn the Gold Award in Girl Scouts.
I checked with her, and have permission to post her photos and add the names. She said, "I definitely didn't know how physically and organizationally demanding it would be when I started, but that made it all the more satisfying...The idea was to get the information to the people who want it, so go for it. If it'll reach interested people who might not find it where it is currently online or in hard copy at the Western Reserve Historical Society, then it's good." --Thanks, Susanna!

Another note on PHOTOS: I give my permission to copy any photos I have taken for your own use or for another site. There are only a few -of hundreds- that I have posted which I did not take personally. Just ask, please, so I make sure you are taking something I shot.

RE: Emma Richter - Woodland Cemetery
Thank you. This is my husband's family and I believe most if not all of the Richters at Woodland are part of the same family. There were 10 or 11 children. Thanks again!

Hi, You sent two corrections for Jno. Smart, and John Smart, there are stones there for both, but the one stone, you put there, says died in 1958, which I already have that entered and someone else put a headstone there. The stone for Jno. Smart is the same headstone, as John Smart, but the other one died in 1892. I am confused, as usual.
