This is a fun and interesting hobby for me, as well as a great way to perform a meaningful community service to others. Someday I hope to have more free time to devote to it.
In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will make exceptions if I am doing photo requests for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. FIND A GRAVE ADMINISTRATORS SUPPORT THIS POLICY. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

Please be kind to Photo Volunteers! We are out there in all kinds of weather in a variety of conditions to find your friend's/relative's graves. We are not after a Pulitzer Prize and sometimes even our best effort may produce a not-so-good photo. If any of my photos are not to your liking, please leave me a message and I will try to get a better one. I will not be offended.

I will no longer makes Edits (other than links and dates) for people who do not have their messages turned on. If I have questions, and have no way to contact you, I will not make the Edits. I do not use e-mail; please don't ask.

NOTE: All photos that I have posted on Find a Grave ARE photos that I have taken myself, or, in the case of a few portrait photos, I received permission to use them and it is so stated in the photo's caption. Photos that I've posted of cemetery gates, signs, statues, buildings, points of interest, mausoleums, etc. that have been added to a cemetery's profile page were ALL taken by me and were submitted to the Admins of this site for posting if they chose to do so. Family photos are all photos that are in my possession, taken by me or immediate family members who are no longer living.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of approximately 25,000 memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

Thank you so much for uploading the photograph of my great grandmother's headstone! I can't tell you how much seeing it means to me.

Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave.

RE: Ethel A. Carver
Hi - her maiden name is "Adams". There is a Colorado marriage record: marriage 8 Feb 1926 between Robert B. Pronger and Ethel G. Adams. (apparently a transcription error, should be Ethel A. Adams).

Robert Pronger and Ethel A. (Adams) Pronger are together in the 1930 and 1940 US Census records, then they apparently parted ways.
Robert remarried to "Helen", and Ethel A. remarried to "Carver" (I don't have his full name or Find A Grave - do you?).

Robert and Ethel had 2 children together:
Pearl - born abt 1928 in Colorado, and
Jean born abt 1929 in Colorado

Some Ancestry family trees also show this connection as well.

Hope this helps.

# 138945222 Thank you so much B.J. for the attention you have given my ancestor. It amazes me the cemetery let it lapse into such bad shape in the first place. I will be exited to see it when they fix it correctly. You are very kind.
