I think we made some progress with Charlene. She decided she did not want a lot of e-mails so she is now asking that a phone call 928-445-1881 be made to the cemetery authorizing the photo and then it can be taken. Valene from the LDS Family History Center is going to visit Mt. View today and take pictures of the gravestones that were approved by the initial batch of e-mails(6) As far as I know, the remainder of the Prescott cemeteries do not require a pre-approval. Showlow, Yuma and Kingman have also jumped on board to get their requests taken care of. It's all good. I promise to stay in Phoenix and take care of things here.
|Dave Davenport||RE: Charlene19516 Mt View Prescott|
Valene at the LDS Family History Center is going to take pictures of about 6 gravesites where permission was obtained directly from the relative and communicated by e-mail to Charlene. I think we are going to get more cooperation from this location and be able to reduce the number of open requests. Now we just need to work on IOOF and Heritage in Dewey. I heard from the folks in Yuma and they are making a lot of headway on requests in that area.I just want to see this work move forward. If I am sticking my nose where it shouldn't be, let me know and I will back off.
Thanks for your efforts to find these folks and get the photos. If I can make a suggestion. Once we determine that there is no marker or record of that person in the cemetery, we advise the requester and take the name off the open list. Then we don't have other folks tracing the same ground we have already covered. Plus the open list looks like it is more doable. I have done that in the Phoenix area with great results.

I ALSO SEE 13 OPEN REQUESTS AT THE IOOF CEMETERY. WE TOOK A FEW PICTURES AT THAT LOCATION WHEN WE WERE THERE. THE GRANDPARENTS OF THE FELLOW I DROVE UP WITH, ARE BURIED THERE. I HOPE YOU AREN'T THE ONLY ONE IN TOWN SNAPPING PICTURES. YOU NEED SOME HELP. I AM MAKING THE SAME PLEA IN OTHER SMALL TOWNS IN ARIZONA. I THINK THE MAIN PROBLEM IS PEOPLE JUST DON'T KNOW THIS OPPORTUNITY FOR SERVICE IS AVAILABLE.

I live in Phoenix and made a day trip to Prescott with a friend of mine who has family ties in Prescott. We visited the caretakers and were told that family members had to authorize the giving of plot information and the OK to photo. We were told that Charlene Weaver, office manager of Heritage Memory Mortuary 131 Grove Ave, 928-445-1881 had to be e-mailed with the authorization. I may have given an incorrect e-mail address. Her card says firstname.lastname@example.org. There are lots of open requests at Mt. View and I would like to see them claimed. There are folks at the LDS Family History Center that will do this when we get the rules established.Thanks 480-460-7790
Thanks, Gail, for going back and taking the photograph. I think I appreciate these "homemade markers more than some of the fancy ones. It shows love and a desire for the loved one not to be forgotten even though there was no money for a permanent marker.
