|Bio and Links|
I've been drawn to cemeteries for as long as I can remember, having often played among the old tombstones at Oxbow Lakeside Cemetery while growing up in White Lake, Michigan.|
If you would like to leave a flower for my Dad, I'd really appreciate it. Please & thank you! :) December 10, 2013 will be his 29th Angel Day. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him, he was a wonderful person and parent.
My family genealogy names include Burks, Kerr, Ellison, Fitzgerald, Glazier, Vidlicka, Corley (Curley, Kurlick), Tomorackas and Tiscavitch.
It's taken me a while but I have added a page for my sweet Jackpot, who is one in a long line of beloved furbabies who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
Since moving to Los Angeles in 1988, I've explored celebrity graves as a hobby and along the way have been just as moved by the neighboring "civilian" headstones that surround and outnumber them. I have been a member of The Hollywood Underground since March 1998.
I run the GrandViewMemorialPark.info website in order to keep the public informed about the ongoing closure/lawsuit story happening there in Glendale, Calif. The cemetery is expected to re-open in late 2013.
Special thanks goes out to fellow graver Linda Mustion, who has worked tirelessly to record over 6,000 memorials to the Grand View FindAGrave page one by one. I'm also a member of the Grand View Volunteers group which added over 30,000 memorials to Grand View's page in 2010. We continue to fulfill requests and manage/transfer memorials to families seeking information on loved ones there.
Adventures in Grave Hunting is my cemetery-related blog. I haven't updated it in a while but the archives of old stories go back several years. I plan to resume updating it when Grand View gets back on its feet and I complete the book about its history. I have a huge backlog of interesting stories just waiting to be told when I have more free time.
My first contribution to Find A Grave was in August 2000, in honor of my grave hunting buddy Denis Svoboda.
I collect vintage photographs of grave markers and of people posing in cemeteries, wondering about the stories behind the snapshots. I like to match them with Find A Grave memorials that are already online, virtually reuniting loved ones whose pictures somehow ended up for sale here and there. See the evolving results here.

I'm sorry I have no idea who the boys are. I Know that Eluther died young and unmarried so don't believe they are his boys. Perhaps nephews? Thanks for the photo.
Would. You be so kind as to send me ,Victorias cause of death again to my mail box at firstname.lastname@example.org

Tranferred. There also these Scribners: Almon E, Annabel, Gary, Harlow & Harold O. Not sure if you are related to these.

If you are related, would you like these memorials transferred to you?
