After my mother passed in May of 2008, and we were sorting out the things she had left behind, I and my siblings had a hard time trying to place names to a lot of the thousands of photos she had. Many very old and deteriorating, I felt responsible to try and preserve as much of the family history and memories as I could, and to be able to share with my living relations and generations to come. I started a family tree on Ancestry.com |
and online photo albums on Photobucket.com - http://photobucket.com/Spidersart. I was hooked, and started visiting the graves ancestors when I could find the locations, that brought me here...
I have a dear friend, who's name is Pebbles. Just like the Flintstones baby. She was born a preemie and was not expected to live. Her mother named her Pebbles because, it was so important to her that her dear baby be remembered. She thought that with a name like Pebbles on the grave marker, everyone who passed, would pause, and hopefully say a little prayer, for her little one. Whenever I see graves of children and babies, I say a prayer for the little ones and for the parents who loved them.

|The Angel Hunter||RE: Ptld Mausoleum|
I asked a few people to call ahead of time and get their ancestors vault locations, so i could go in and not draw attention to myself and take the pictures on the sly. But they wouldn't give vault locations over the phone. I did talk with another photographer who got permission to take a couple photos and took some more on the sly. i hear memorial weekend is good as there are more people there and easier to melt in the crowd. For me, it is too long of a drive to only get 1 or 2 photos. I would stick with it, if I were you, they may give you permission to take a couple photos anyway. I think they are mostly discouraging people like me (hehe) who go in and photograph whole floors at a time. That's what I do at Lincoln Memorial's Mausoleum.

Have you had any sucess obtaining any photos at Portland Mausoleum? I was turned away because they don't allow photography. Maybe there is a secret I wasn't aware of.
Good luck with your research...
