I came to this site for the purpose of conducting family research and organizing this research into a grand memorial to honor my family. It was intended to be something that succeeding generations can come to learn about their ancestral past. It is my gift to my family. |
I have extended the focus of the memorials I create to include friends, family, and people with whom I am somehow connected. Along the way I will create memorials for others and upload photos to memorials as well, especially for veterans and those trying to do their own family research. Hopefully I may be of some help to someone. If I create such a memorial and you, as a family member, make a request for a transfer I will gladly transfer the memorial to your care no questions asked. I hate those anal jerks who refuse to transfer out of guidelines. After all, it's your family. You should be the one to determine how that person is memorialized and remembered. I will not transfer a memorial for any of my family members however. I will likewise not permit anyone other than other family members to use any of my family photos or download same. If I download a photo for you to one of your memorials feel free to use your photo any way you wish.
I live a block from Holy Cross Cemetery in North Arlington. I enjoy fulfilling photo requests for this cemetery, and often scan Find A Grave for memorials for persons buried in HCC and even Holy Name that don't have grave marker photos. If you have a special photo request for these cemeteries just let me know.

I want to thank you for taking pictures of the graves of the soldiers killed in the horrific accident in 1944. I was going to take a ride to Holy Cross this morning, but before the time of my departure, I wanted to check the memorials. Lo and behold, I saw that you have taken pictures. You saved me a trip. There is one last one, that of Robert Bucella BLK 13, SECTION A, ROW A, GRAVE 154. The memorial had the wrong Holy Cross Cemetery. They had the one in East Brunswick. Could you take the picture ? It is a trip for me as I live in Denville, New Jersey. Appreciate your help.I have an idea that the 4 buried in Holy Cross were friends.
Hope to hear from you.
On grounds of 228th Station Hospital, Haydon Park, Sherborne, Dorset, England, recovering mines after mine-laying exercise on 20th March 1944, truck rolled back over a live mine killing 29 members of C Company, 294th Engineer Combat Battalion.Remembrance plaque outside Sherborne Abbey.Witness in hospital "I was lying in bed when there was a huge explosion and I was blown off my bed. The other patients and I raced outside and we saw the carnage. Company "C" had just finished an exercise with mine laying and then picked up the anti-tank mines and placed them alongside a truck to be taken to a safe area until the next exercise. The truck accidentally backed up over some mines and about 90 mines exploded. The truck disappeared and 29 men were torn apart and their bodies were scattered through the trees. It was horrendous."

|Robert Shepard||Thank you...|
Thank you for taking the time to photograph the Smiyj grave site. I really appreciate it.
|Burgess Donnelly||Thomas Halleran Holleran|
Many thanks for the marker photo!
|Future's Past||Bruno at Holy Cross|
I see your photo requests for Domenica and Giovanna Bruno at Holy Cross. I noticed you already put pictures on the memorials. Are you looking for new pics or do you need to cancel your photo requests? If you're looking for new photos then if I get a chance I can take the pictures for you.

Thank You Very Much :-)

|Greg Burns||RE: Carmela Maglione Carfagno|
Her real name was Carmela. She was known as "Mina".
I think I created the listing as I recall.
Do you do any photos of Clifton Cemeteries?
|Nellie NY||Michael and Gertrude Fedowitz|
Thank you so much for taking the time to go to the cemetery and for taking the nice photo. I really appreciate it.
|Greg Burns||Carmela Maglione Carfagno|
Thanks a million for taking the photo of Carmela "Mina" Carfagno's headstone. I appreciate your efforts and dedication in supporting the Find-a-Grave program.
All the Best,
