Bio and Links
Greetings from Dallas, Texas!!! I am new at this but I love history. I am in search of family I never knew about and the hunt has been fruitful. Right now, I am focused in finding headstones in Oakland Cemetery where many of my ancestors are laid to rest. I am working on the photo requests and will do my best to find loved ones. Permission is granted for any pictures I upload to this website to be used by their love ones. Family names, I am searching for are: Hernandez, Alvarado and Moreno on my maternal side. They are scattered in Texas and Mexico. Paredes and Marquez on my paternal side. They also are from Texas or Coahuila, Mexico.

RE: re: Dallas library
I called the Dallas library, then they said to put through an interlibrary transfer and gave me the names of the newspapers, then when I did that, they told my library that they were being renovated and to try other surrounding libraries to them. Not sure why they didn't just tell me that in the first place. My library is tending to want to "dump" interlibrary loan requests right now because of their renovation, so it is a double mess..

Thanks for adding their children and doing edits to link them in. I do extended trees on all the branches of my tree as far as I can go. donna

re: Dallas library
Virginia, I see you are in Dallas.Do you ever look up obits at the Dallas library? I have been trying to get this obit from the Dallas library, but they say they are doing remodeling? Is that true? This was a weird one I came across by accident who I think was born in GA.

Dallas Daily News or Dallas Times Herald
1928
Title: Obituary forr Emma Etta (Brown) Potts who died on Mar. 26, 1928 in Dallas, Texas and is buried somewhere in Waxahachie, Texas, but a photo volunteer says that the Waxahachie cemetery office has no record of her

Thank you also for taking pics for Ernest and Bessie Harpold. Luckily they were in the same plot! This is a distant part of my Mason tree. donna
