I added of photo of Mr. Banani to his memorial, got it from Bahaikipedia, where everything is free. You can also copy materials right out of Wikipedia, that's what it's here for. I also always add a link to the find a grave page.
|Candace Hill||RE: Baha'i Graves|
I began tracking down some of the early believers on Find a Grave because of our 1912 Centenary here, take a look at my Virtual Cemeteries and see the True family for example. There is still very little biographical information about Corinne True on the Internet, no Wikipedia page yet because I have not been brave enough to write one, and yet with good photos I was able to put up a memorial for every single member of her family.
What makes this so much easier these days is the huge number of photographs now coming available online with all the Baha'i blogs. There's one blog that I swear has uploaded every photograph from every volume of Baha'i World. Just invaluable.
Two years ago I wrote a photographic history of the Baha'i House of Worship (Google my name) and that made me feel so close to all those dear friends who worked so hard to make that spiritual reality a physical reality.
A project I would really love to get started on is the Baha'i Cemetery in Haifa. So many beloved friends are buried there who don't have any other biographical info online. The thing to do first is to take photos of each grave, create a cemetery page, and make sure we have the names correct, and then we can upload them all and work on obits one by one. I would love to write an entry for Mag Carney, whom I worked with for a short time.
Anyway, take a look at the memorials I created to see what I do and let's have some fun. If you want to take photos, we can make a Find A Grave Flickr page for them. I end up catching a lot of photo on Facebook pages of friends of friends.
Here is a link to my Google spreadsheet with Find a Grave links if I have them.
Happy to meet you Maeve
|Candace Hill||Baha'i Graves|
Hi there Maeve,
You and I should be friends, as I have been finding and creating memorials for Baha'is as I find them in my historical travels around the internet.
Right now I'm working on a large spreadsheet for Baha'i World In Memoriams and have been adding links to Find a Grave and finding new gravesites as well.
It's a fun hobby, and I've been connecting with people all over the world in finding and preserving our history.
Are you living/serving in Haifa, or just visiting?
