Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a fun and interesting hobby for me, as well as a great way to perform a meaningful community service to others. Someday I hope to have more free time to devote to it. Yes, I'm in it for the numbers! The more memorials that are on this site, the better chance of people finding relatives. That's what this is all about.

In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will make exceptions if I am personally doing work for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. FIND A GRAVE ADMINISTRATORS SUPPORT THIS POLICY. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

I will not cut and paste raw data from census records, death indices, etc. A nicely written bio is preferable.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

RE: Grace Wright
I tried twice to add a link to her father. Both times it was declined with the General reason: The memorial is up to date with submitted edit. However, I do not see the link to her father, Andrew Winkler 100356918. I can't see how adding a link to her father is duplicating anything on the memorial.

Thanks for the photo of his gravestone. (My grandmother's first cousin)

May I use a copy of the photo in a 1986 family history that I'm reprinting?

RE: Lucille DeWeese photo request.
Thanks so much. Lucille and Lial were married. They died a few months apart. Lucille Janet Morrison is my 1st cousin. She married four times. Still trying to find husbands and kids. Again, thanks for the help.

RE: Mildred Tocco photo request.
Well BJ I DO stand corrected - I clicked on YOUR photo, which I really liked, and YEP there you were - indeed 'a girl' - we MUST stand together with an exception: My girlhood left me about 70 years ago - but it comes to all should they be blessed NOT to be planted yet. For some blasted reason I MISS-took you -- the initals I guess and yet they weren't even close!!! It's the brain-dead thingie. My apologies. You have REALLY done and are doing a wonderful service for people who've lost loved ones - that may be lost but you found them, posted them and someone JUST on the chance came into Find A Grave and WOW here they were because of people like YOU. The pix of you AT Inglewood - shows me it is one beautiful cemetery. My husband thinks I'm kinda nuts but I have always loved walking thru especially OLD cemeteries. And I am SO glad of the digital-cameras of today. Wish we'd had them when I was younger. Whatever - thank YOU for the clarification. I STAND WAY-CORRECTED. Darleen

Correction - I thought you were one and the same - the other was CJ Bryan - he took great photo's too. I've been SO blessed by having people such as yourself to do this work. MUCHO appreciated.

RE: Mildred Tocco photo request.
AWESOME!!!! You know BJ - they were married many years - TRUE TRUE to each other - she married into an OLE Italian family - and really got converted to their ways - a lot of the ole Italian cooking etc., Loved her and him very much. Very HONORABLE people. Her sister (another favorite of mine) Lorraine married a Berardini and that too - what fun we had at Italian weddings and whatever else was being celebrated. Wonderful memories. I think it was you that did one more for me of Jackie at Forest Lawn (what awesome pictures)- she was a troubled soul - SO beautiful but so many problems in her life; took me like forever to find out what LAST name she was using when she died; she had a few. The THREE of them were quite beautiful - O O my mother was in there too. Again - you are AWESOME my fine young man. Thanks so much.
