Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started seriously studying genealogy because I didn't know the names of my four grandparents. I was desperate to learn all I could about my family.
I also love helping other people discover their roots. I work at it full-time, and I hope to become certified soon.
I have many personal trees because my maiden name is rare in the US; most ancestors with my surname came from a very particular region of Slovenia. I am trying to piece together all the Slovene "Bavec" immigrants to the US (mostly US). I hope to compile a book someday with all this information. I also have started a genetic genealogy surname project website. And I especially love comparing notes with other genealogists.

RE: Memorial Transfers
Hi Jen,

If you are serious about transferring the memorials... I see you have about 17 memorials from Madronia cemetery. I am doing research on every person buried there. So, if you want to transfer the Madronia memorials to me, that would use make my job easier. That way I do not have to send zillions of edit requests. I appreciate that very much.

If no, then that is okay, too.

Thank you Jen,

John Beall #69211241 Alameda Co
Hi Jen -

Re the memorial you created #69211214, an unmarked grave for John Beall: How did you know it was John Beall buried there? I am John Gideon Beall's granddaughter. He was my grandpa! I am overwhelmed to see that you have created a memorial for him in Find A Grave.

I have been looking for his burial site forever, and had connected with Find A Grave looking for my husband's grandfather, Leander McAuley (completely unrelated to my family, but has a memorial, still looking for his gravesite!!!!). Quite by accident, I stumbled upon "John Beall" in Find A Grave, shown in an unmarked grave in Alameda County, which you had created. How did you come to know it was him buried in that unmarked grave? After seeing that, I wrote the Mt. Eden Cemetery a letter, enclosed the newspaper clipping about my grandpa's death, and a picture of him, hoping to make him as much of a presence to them as he is to me. They CALLED me yesterday, and sent photos of the gravesite. I'm so overwhelmed, I can't express it. My husband and I plan to drive north from SoCal to Hayward, CA in the next few weeks so I can see the gravesite. If it's him, we want to make sure we get a marker for him. I'm so overwhelmed I could cry. I never met him, he was gone way before I was born.

My grandpa, John G. Beall, died in a tragic accident in 1933 just outside Dublin, CA, and died 3 hours in the Hayward Hospital after that accident. He was my dad's father, he taught my dad how to play the fiddle. And the stories go on from there!

I don't know if we have communicated before or not but my grandmother was Frances Elizabeth Dailey Goad. I am currently working on the Dailey's again - have been for 15+ years anyway I might have found the father of James W. Dailey. My great grandfather was Silas Youngblood Dailey. If you want to know what I have found e-mail me

Thanks Cecilia Lee
