Bio and Links
Bio Photo I fell into this ancestry thing 7 yrs ago when a cousin in Brazil asked for the dates of our grandmother's birth & death. It snowballed from there into family trees, etc. and researching our history, both for my husband and myself. Then when I began photographing graves, someone from RAOGK (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness) told me if I was doing my family graves then it would benefit others to photograph graves in the same cemetery! So another hobby was born as if I didn't have enough to do anyway! I am recovering from cancer & I find (& have always found) cemeteries restful, interesting and peaceful on a sunny day...and this gives me a chance to have a hobby that I am passionate about that I can work on at my own pace. Thanks to all the Find A Grave volunteers!
By the way, I am very pleased to make links, suggestions & transfers that are reasonable.

Please keep requests within the Findagrave transfer policy... namely parents, siblings, grand & great grandparents or 1st generation aunts & uncles. Yet if you care enough to ask for a transfer for a relative or dear friend I will honor it. I was recently denied a transfer request of my fathers sister as the person said she was a "dear friend of her mother & she preferred to keep her". To say I was disappointed is understating. She was a Dear 'Aunt' of mine & I would have liked to make family updates that a friend may not always catch. Singing to myself "Let It Go"....

I try to do the best I can with photos but our weather in Oregon this year (2014) in particular has been wet & soggy. Many of the graves are covered in mud or wet when I photo. Or at Mt.Calvary Cemetery there are the steep hills that I try not to stumble & roll down while photographing the stones! If you want to take a better photo you are always welcome to add it to my entry & I can delete my picture.

RE: Ivan Kirpatrick
I found it. Yes, those were a wonderful set of photos from the Elliott family (ours) who married into the Kirkpatricks. My Mother has those photos.

RE: Skyline
Thanks. Good to know that I can cross the mausoleum off our list. If you ever get tired of Mt. Calvary, let me know. We have lots left to do at Skyline. Likewise, if we ever get Skyline done (there are four of us, but I think we're less than half done), I'll be in touch. I have had Mt. Calvary in the back of my mind for my next project. Steve

I connected a son to a pair of your memorials at Skyline and noticed from your bio that you may be working on doing some documentation there. If so, I wanted to connect you with myself and several other people who are working through sections of Skyline so we don't overlap. If you plan to work there regularly, let me know and I'll fill you in. Steve

RE: Ivan Kirpatrick
Thank you for your note. I am not sure who you are referring to. Could you send me the memorial # for Ivan?

Create your team by emailing those who do requests or that you run across when you are doing your entries. Just get them to volunteer to do a section and keep track. There are 4 of us. Some do more some less but they all add up. Good Luck! Rosalie

You were correct, he is buried at Riverview Cemetery, so the memorial has been deleted. Thanks for letting me know.

Hi Judi. I would be more than happy to transfer management of the memorials you have requested. If you would let me know their memorial numbers I'll get them transferred right away.
Best wishes.
