Bio Photo If you would like a transfer just send me a request via the "suggestion" tab.

I took some horrible pictures with a new camera and will include them, but if you can provide a better one, please let me know so I can delete mine
If you send an edit, please do not use someone's family tree as proof. I've found folks will often make incorrect assumptions and someone else will come along and believe that assumption has been verified.
I don't need or require proof as some folks do, but will usually check Please do not put a obituary picture on my memorials unless they are over 100 years old Only pictures you take yourself.
Thank you for all you do on FAG.

RE: Edit for Carmen Martinez
I think the Memorial Garden is also known as Perpetual Care. There is a stone wall and a small warehouse in front. My great grandparents are buried there. It's not far from the dump site. A truck lost control and took out some of the wall this week, but no graves were damaged and the driver was fine.

I am glad someone has taken to posting those graves. I was going to start the 1890's-1920, but if they are already done, this is wonderful news.

He was buried there in the city cemetery. My grandfather was 8, but remembers the funeral. The afternoon he told me about his brother, I drove to the city cemetery just before closing and asked a man in the office. He ran the name and told me there was no burial record because the boy was probably buried in the paupers plot. I thought that was that, but two days later a leaf popped up stating someone had made a find a grave for Corando. I had no idea how this was possible considering there is no record of his burial and that only the man in the office knew I'd inquired about the boy's grave.

That's alright. I understand the struggle.

They are of no relation to me. I was painting one of my older family plots and I found Rosa's grave in some shaded forgotten part of the cemetery. And I wanted to know why she was forgotten. Normally I make the tree, contact the living descendants, and delete it to start the next posting. It appears you and I are the only ones to remember Rosa and Carmen.

You did post one of my relatives though. Jose Corando de Cruz. He was my grandfather's baby brother. I was so confused as to how it was posted two days after I went to the office and was told there was no burial record. Corando's mother is in the Catholic cemetery. I will upload a posting for her soon.

Absolutely. I have their 1900 and 1910 census. Carmen's 1953 death certificate doesn't have her parents' names, but the birth date matches her civil birth record. I have a tree set up on ancestry if you would like to save all the info for Carmen's page.
