Bio Photo I have been in this business for almost 14years and find myself learning something new on a daily basis. I originally researched only my family's roots however I soon found that my talents could assist others in their quest for knowledge.

Any information on my memorials is either my own or taken from public historical documents. If you are on a memorial with a photo I took, then please ask me if you can use the photo. Thanks!

If you would like assistance with your genealogy or more information on any of the individuals in my database, then please e-mail me!

Incorrect burial site photo
Dear GeneaProtector,

Thank you for registering my father's grave Memorial #133208564 William T. O'Brien (Holy Sepulchre). I was just curious to see if any records of my father and other family members appeared in the database and found that someone had already entered his information. Most of it was correct. I edited the correct dates of birth & death. I tried contacting one of the photo contributor's William Kazupski, as he had submitted a photo which I do not recognize as my father's grave site. The photo has text describing the burial site and states that there is no marker. This is not correct. He does have a grave marker. My father is buried in section 49 which is very close to his brother Paul F. O'Brien and his brother-in-law, Martin H. Rafacz, both of whom you also entered in the database. I would eventually like to have a correct photo of his grave. I looked at street view in Google Maps and the photo that appears in this record has a view onto Ridgeland Avenue. My dad is actually buried in the middle of the cemetery across from to the main building where they perform the funeral masses. doesn't appear to be Holy Sepulchre. I would appreciate if that photo is removed and/or replaced with the correct one.
Thank you for your help. Kind regards, Jennifer (O'Brien) Wellink

RE: Anna the SInger
Thank you for adding bio for Anna (Анна Герман). Are you sure you want to proceed with the Famous status? You will loose ability to manage her memorial page. I won't do that. Every singer and actor in days of Soviet Union were so popular and famous, because of the political system we lived in.... You can't imagine all of them to have a Famous status though. They were famous among one/two countries (Russia, Ukraine, Poland), but absolutely unknown to the rest of the world.
I believe, that Famous status must be for people who are known to entire world only. It is my personal opinion.

Best regards,

Brooks Cemetery
A little 'heads-up' on Brooks Cemetery.

In past years I trekked to this cemetery to do F-A-G photos. A year ago I stopped going because the cemetery has become poorly maintained, many of the gravestones are broken or illegible, and just walking around is a hazard with holes, exposed tree roots, and low-hanging branches.

I wish you luck on obtaining photos from here because I think word has gotten around to F-A-G people that this cemetery is an unpleasant place to research.

God bless.

I was just on my late husbands page and noticed you posted a pic of him from high school or somewhere. I find this pic to be unbecoming of him and would like to see of you could take it off please.

I would greatly appreciate it.

James Matthews FAG # 19720419
I served with James in Vietnam and posted the photo and documents on his memorial. Two years ago I realized his name was misspelled on the Wall as "Mathews". I successfully petitioned to get it officially corrected. Yesterday I was contacted, thru my postings on James' Find A Grave, by a representative for the Department of Defense. He is trying to locate relatives of James to ask if they want his name changed on the Wall itself. Do you have any information such as an obituary or the Funeral Home that handled the arrangements? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ....Larry

Josephine Blaha
I believe there may not be a headstone for Josephine Blaha. I will fufill your photo request with a photo of Joseph and the unmarked grave next to him. BTW, your request may have the wrong grave location. You noted 279 but Joseph is at 729.
