Bio and Links
Bio Photo The death of my Mother was my inspiration to do Family Genealogy. Her death had left us(her 4 young Children) with many questions in mind and it had driven me to a frenzy to find those answers. Now in her Memory, I've been at it since 1985. So far I've held 2 Family Reunions and I have UPDATED our (found) Family Bible; also I have kept the same writing format and written it ALL by hand as our ancestors did; continuing the book from last entry of 1950. Now I'm working on our very unique "Montoya Baca" Coat of Arms-Representing our Spanish & Native American Heritage from our homeland of New Mexico(The First Families of New Mexico). Along with my Family Memorial sites, I have added some folks to this site who have the same "Surnames" as my family; to help out those who we call "Primo-cousin" . So they know that their "Primos"~Final Resting Place~is in California.

"When it comes to taking pictures, I will try and take that view of your love one; to give you the sense that you are there at their plot visiting; by picturing the surrounding scene of where your love one is laid to rest".

~Sorry for the extra info; but I need to post this for those who think I am the duplicate Memorial submitter-I always look first for the Memorial before I make a New Memorial. So Back Off!~
Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, you should search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you are adding a memorial for someone who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. You should never deliberately create a duplicate memorial. In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page. There are some situations where an individual (usually a 'famous' individual) may have more than one memorial page, because their body was buried in one location but a cenotaph or second marker/memorial was also placed in a second location. NOTE As of Jan 25, 2013: If there are two memorial pages for the same individual, and one has a Lost at Sea designation, and the other gives the location of a cenotaph or memorial marker, the memorial page with the Lost at Sea location may be merged into the memorial page with a physical cenotaph stone or memorial location.

Hi Sly, Thanks so much for the information. I will try contacting the cemetery and see what I can find out. The cemeteries seem to be getting more and more where they don't want to comply for pictures. Thanks again. Linda

Thanks for all your help. I was able to contact the mausoleum and they were able to send me a photo of where Fernella's crypt was located. I appreciate all your help.

Thank you again!!!!

Seideman Pictures

I just saw the pictures of the Seideman graves. Thanks so much for your time and effort to do this that's certainly enhanced their memorials. I recently contacted Agnes's only living daughter, and she sent me the picture that's on Agnes's memorial. She remembered a tree in the vicinity of her parents' graves.
