Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband Chuck and I live on the West coast and have visited the lower 48 States in our travel trailer. We did this at first, just to enjoy the beauty, but also searched for little pieces of our heritage. We both enjoy doing this, but it does remind us of how much we wished we had asked questions of our family while we had a chance, but sadly now, it is too late. We are grateful however for the search options now available and the world wide contributors willing to help. Using these tools we hope to gather some of the "lost"information that we failed to ask and preserve it for our children and grand children and beyond and in the process help others that are also searching.

Your grandfather may have a memorial already. You can search (I usually just search the last name) on the cemetery home page. If there is a memorial for him look at the top right for a tab to request a transfer. You can ask whoever manages the page to transfer it to you, explaining the relationship.
I see you have two memorials that you created and manage. You can do the same if there is no memorial in the springfield cemetery for your grandfather. On the cemetery main page click on add a name to this cemetery. Then fill in his name, dates and the lot number if you have that.
I always transfer to family members but every contributor is independent. Good luck.

I understand from the office at Queen of Heaven cemetery that there is a marker for our relative. I'd really appreciate that photograph.

If you have documentation that your grandfather was buried ther-a funeral card or obituary, etc- you could go ahead and create a memorial for him. I went to Springfield to find the Sherman graves. It was one of the earliest cemeteries I walked. It is on the hill above the town of Springfield. The grass gets long and it waves in the wind. Very nice.
I have created memorials for some relatives where there is documentation but no stone to be found. Those country cemeteries have lots of no stone graves.

RE: Apalategui
Thanks, I'm working on Loma Vista as time permits. I've photographed the Northeast & Cypress Lawns and 2/3 of the East Lawn. I went to Yorba Cemetery last Saturday and took 150 pictures. I try to do a little research on each one and then link into a family group when possible. Two of the Apalategui children are buried at Yorba, however the memorial holder appears to be inactive. It's a process, but after about 30 days, I can get the find-a-grave administrators to do the links and/or transfer the memorials to me. I did note that Martin & Juana are buried in the Shady Lawn, Lot 163. "Chuck & Karen" hold the memorial for their son Joe. Chuck and Karen like to document the military headstones.

Thank you
For the Root family headstones. Do you mind if I use them for my personal family tree on Ancestry.
