I can not believe you are still working at genealogy. You have been at it about as long as I have.
|Steve Howe||RE: Harmon memorials|
You are VERY welcome!
|Lora Peppers||Harmon memorials|
All four are now transferred to your care. Please don't just leave them bare! I'd like to see them fleshed out as much as possible! It makes them come to life and not just become names and dates on a cold stone.
|Don Pierce||RE: Tatum marker|
You're very welcome.

Updated per your request. FYI the "Note:FALSE" was a problem that happened when Find A Grave uploaded a large batch of entries from me and they all had that entered into that field - not by my choosing. Anyway, as I find them, I am repairing, but I have no way to track them all.
Glad to see you connected with Chris. Great guy.
I've gone in and updated all the records I maintain at Cypress for the surname Valdez, so that you have access to all. Hope that helps.

My dad was born in Monroe, moved to Swartz when he was 4. Left Louisiana in the late 1930's due to lack of employment opportunity. He joined the service and was stationed at San Diego when he met my mother. So he never went back. I have lots of relatives buried in Caldwell Parish also. And some in the Old City Cemetery in downtown Monroe. Several of my cousins, aunts and uncle are also at Mulhearn. Last time I went back was in 1999, with my father. Now that he is gone, doubt I'll be going again.
I started researching the family in 1975. Sadly, I need to have started a couple of years early as my grandparents were gone before I started. I have millions of questions that I will never have the answers for.
California is very liberal, I wouldn't mine if it were a little more conservative. I actually am in Orange County, not far for Disneyland. I do love the climate, not so much the nanny state we live in. Housing prices are out of sight. For what we pay for a house, you would be living in a mansion, while we are living in a very, very average house. Prices are very high and so are taxes. You are probably better off where you are.

Hi James: I was looking at your memorials and I can't believe it, you have a relative buried at Mulhearn Cemetery in Monroe, LA. My grandparents are buried there. As a child, I spent every other summer visiting them in Swartz, LA. Still have some cousins there. Small world. Chris

I went through this with my ggrandparents just this year. I had to provide birth, marriage and death certificates for each of the generation, to prove I had the right to mark them. It was a lot of work, but since I do genealogy, I had most of the documents I needed already. At least you have, one less generation than I did. It wasn't as bad as it sounds, if you already have been gathering the records. Otherwise, there is a lot of documents you need to write for and some document fees. California is very strict on this kind of thing.

Hi James: When you find relatives, you can (through the edit tab at the top of the memorial) request that the original memorial creator transfer the memorial to you (do that under the add a suggestion area once you have clicked the edit tab). Then you will be able to make whatever additions or changes you would like. Most of the memorial creators in large cemeteries have no relationship to the memorials they have created and are more than happy to transfer them to you. You'll run into a few that want you to adhere to the guidelines which is great grandparents, grandparents, parents, children, but most don't care. Give it a try and ask the transfer of the Forest Lawn Cypress relatives. I put an edit request in for George Valdez to add his birthdate. Pam should make that change within the next week. Not sure why she puts "false" on some of her memorials. I run into that a couple of times with her entries. Hope this helpful to you. Chris
