I would like to tip my hat to those intrepid volunteers that take photographs in cemeteries. Getting a good photo is not easy! The angle of the sun, clouds, grass clippings, over grown weeds, etc. If you have a better picture to upload than I've taken, let me know and if I concur, I'll delete mine. If you want to upload a picture to a memorial I've created, let me know and I'll request one! Photographers deserve as much reward as they can get!|
Families that I'm researching include Lapham, Wixson, Hillyard-Hyliard, Jesseph, Rappleye, Van Nuys, Cantrell, Gennrich-Genrich, Wilk-Wilkie-Wilczewski, Hoff, and Filipowicz-Phillips. And my wife's family Sawyer, Mumm, Limb, Curry, Barkuloo, Schmidt, and Green.
Working Peoria County cemeteries. Photographed: Prospect, Chillicothe, Streitmatter, and Saint Joseph Mooney Cemetery.
I am now working the historic Springdale Cemetery. Have 100% photograhed Division A, The Willows, Forrest Lawn, Woodland Heights, Front Lawn, Chapel View, Mt. Sinai, Mt. Hope, Washington Heights, Resurrection, Masonic Garden, Last Supper, Sermon on the Mount, Gethsemane, Good Shepherd, Valley View, Hillcrest Division, Garden of Memories, Glen Division / Glen Ext., Hickory Slope / Ext., Lawn Division and Fairview Lawn (with embedded Orchard Hill and Summit Range) grave markers in Springdale. Working the Mausoleum, North Division and Old Public Lots Divisions now.
Many - many thanks to Mel Slane for finding in excess of 3,000 obituaries for Springdale memorials!
Photographer A D Rogers has photographed and uploaded images for all of Sunset Terrace, Middle Valley, and Rose Hill. He's also photographed all of the Mausoleum.
If you make edit suggestions, I do investigate every suggestion before accepting. I do not accept suggestions, where the only source is an ancestry tree. Documentation is required.
Please do not ask me to link a memorial to burial "unknown", this web site is for the known dispostion of the remains. Let's keep it that way.
A few things I've learned...
Death certificates are good for date and location of death (other info on death certificate is advisory).
Birth certificate is the best source for date of birth, location, and parents.
Info from headstones is also advisory too. Headstones are sometimes put in place decades later by descendants and errors are made.
I will transfer ownership of a memorial to you if they fall within the Find A Grave guidelines (*with one exception), unless they are part of my own genealogical research.
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
*Once a memorial is complete: death record added, family links made, obituary added, etc. please do not ask for a transfer.
Many of the transfers that I've made, just sit there, no embellishments.

Below is what I received. Do you mind putting your statement that you require documentation for every correction at the beginning of your BIO? You are the only one I deal with who makes this statement, and I don't want to have to read all of everyone's wordy bio. When you reject a correction, I'd like to see your documentation for rejecting it. Does that work for you?
This is an automated email letting you know that your recent edit for the Etta McCormick Hayes (1911 - 1999) Find A Grave memorial has been declined.
General reason: Not accurate - Their data conflicts with my data.

Do want panoramic views of their family plots and actual locations
