Bio and Links
I always knew my Grandparents were born in Los Angeles. It was not until I saw my Great Grandparents' names in an 1888 Los Angeles Directory that I realized there were so many documents that could be found about them.

So in 1975 my parents and I began contacting all the relatives and collecting all the data and pictures we could find. My father and grandfather were photo enthusiasts so if we found a photo that someone did not want to part with my father took a picture of it.

I am on findagrave because I want to document my family's part in the development of Los Angeles. In addition there are three Hetz families in CA, and I want to document mine.

Using LDS German Church Records I have traced my Cochems line to 1614, my Zenz line to 1704, my Hetz line to 1788 and my Kemmerle line to 1632.

I want to thank my parents for their untiring help in this project and for the photo albums they put together when they were young. I could not have collected all this material without them.

RE: View
You are welcomed..I just started to take 2 pictures because I felt that just the headstone is kind of cold and empty and the area around is so warm with beauty that I wanted to share the moment. Thank you for your positive response.

RE: Norton
You are most welcomed.. It was very easy to find. Holy Cross is a big challenge and that is why I like to go there and the hills and scenery is awesome.

RE: Kline Gravestone
Hmm.. Interesting.. Well I was there on Monday and I took the picture of what headstone was there. Now do you want me to check into this when I am at the office? I would like to follow up on this if you don't mind.. Give me some more information if you want, but in my private email, so I can have proof that I am a representative of your family.

RE: Kline Gravestone
Hmm!! They have no record of her being buried there or ashes either.. And it's up to the family to put the date on the headstone or the cemetery?

You are welcomed. What is the mystery with Marjorie ?? Is she buried in Oregon? Should I delete the photo on her memorial??

Just read your tribute to your mom. Beautiful. Not everyone has that kind of relationship or memories of their childhood.

RE: Calvary
I can take photos at Calvary. I am recovering from surgery right now but I can do it. When I first started adding names to Find-A-Grave I did not have a camera. Now I do and there are a lot of memorials that I need to add photos to. What I need is a memorial # of the person you want headstone photos for.

I will write down the death info, call the cemetery and get the burial location. I have relatives buried ALL over that cemetery. It is HUGE. Without the cemetery's help, I have NO idea where they are. I will take the headstone photos for you.

Just send me the memorial numbers of the people you need headstones for.

My email address is:
