Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in gathering members of my family and greater family together and linking them. The find a grave community is extremely important in creating a global community for, not only honoring our ancestors and family, but in creating a means for people to locate greater family members and know their ancestry. The internet itself is comprised of work by various individuals (and organizations and businesses) with interest in one or more things and proof that a people-made network is important. I may also, occasionally, find and create a memorial for someone who caught my attention and interest, which I can turn over to a family member -- this I will denote on such a memorial page. But others, including some semi-famous or famous-connected or famous I might keep for myself to run, either because I am exploring a possible connection to me or because I feel my memorial is good, respectful and important, and I want to preserve it. No harm is intended.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you for the wonderful cemetery stone photos you took of Milam 142559490 Williams and his wife Olive 143378120 Williams.
We appreciate the time you took and sorry about all the trouble you ran into locating their cemetery stones.
Find A Grave is a great site but only because of people like you.
Thank you.

RE: Amazing work, Linda
Thanks! I try to help wherever I can. While visiting relatives on the east coast I discovered so many small cemeteries that I would love to transcribe but not enough hours in the day. My favorite tool for dusting stones is a three inch soft bristle paint brush, big enough to brush the stones (wood handle comes in handy at times) but small enough to fit in my pocket so I can take it where ever I go. Experiment to see what works best for you.

Glad to help out. I found that a closeup of the Hebrew can make it easier to read.

It looks like you created the memorial pages about a year or so ago, this is different than requesting a photo so perhaps that is what happened.

RE: Volunteer photo request for John B. Coffey
Good morning! The office gave me a location for him. Good Shepard Lawn, Grave B, Section 514, Section C. They said they would provide a map if you came into the office. I transferred management of the memorial and I am not able to edit the plot but I will send an edit. Thank-you!

Find-a-grave meet up
EmpressDR, back in October Find-A-Grave had a meet and greet so fellow find-a-gravers could pass along thoughts etc. I happened to be in Ontario, Canada that weekend so I couldn't make any of them down here. Maybe we could have a mini-meet near one of the North Orange County cemeteries. I see that you are a friend of Chuck/Karen Brackett, (I don't know them but they seem to be from OC) if you know them we could possibly invite them too. I live in Fullerton and drive past Loma Vista Memorial Park on my way to Memory Garden Memorial Park. You may contact me at
