Bio and Links
Bio Photo I want to thank everyone involved on find a grave, that have spend countless hours researching, walking up and down sections of the cemetery and sometimes even crawling under bushes just to create memorials, post headstone pictures and give as much details to help others locate loved ones that have passed on, that some of the family doesn't even know where they are buried or if there is even a memorial at a cemetery for that person.

Often I find myself out at a cemetery to clean a family member's headstone or located a loved one and look around at the countless thousands of graves or memorials in the cemetery and can almost feel their spirits saying don't forget about me and I end up spending hours more at the cemetery photographing their headstone as well. Hoping it might help someone else in the process of their family research.

I don't mind anyone using any photograph of a headstone that I have taken, but please give credit to the Find A Grave memorial and post the cemetery, find a grave memorial number as much details as you can, so that others that might come across that picture of the headstone might or will be able to locate or have some idea of where that person is buried.

Any personal picture of my family that I have uploaded to find a grave, please ask my permission before using.

Every little bit of information helps and I try to process any suggestions, corrections or transfer of any memorial as fast as I can, so please use the edit tab to make corrections or if you are requesting transfers, just let me know how you are related to them.

Thank you,

John Nielson

RE: Donald Bannister headstone photo
Sorry, it was covered with several inches of wet sod and I didn't have a shovel...if important to have the death year I can try to get...this is a mainly flat stone section with some of the earliest burials.

italics and bold text in bios
Hi John,
Here's a handy little trick for using some simple "html" codes in bios to acheive italics or bold text.

If you surround a bit of text with < i> and < /i> (remove the spaces), it will make italics like this.

If you surround a bit of text wtih < b> and < /b> (remove the spaces), it will make bold like this.

You can even combine the two to make bold italic text.

Have fun with it and remember, copy/paste is your friend. ^_^

Take care and God bless,
Rich

RE: Thank you
You are most welcome. I am happy that I could find them for you. I noted there were quite a few Marshalls at that cemetery, presumably some of the others are also related to these. They were not all in one section but scattered in groups in different sections.

RE: Thank you, Paul
You're welcome. The numbers refer to the grave locations for them and the edits you processed. Also, the graves for Moore, Conners, Dontos and Green are in the Washelli section of Evergreen-Washelli instead of Pacific Lutheran Cemetery. The Arnetzen and Adams couples are in Pacific Lutheran so no changes needed for them.

RE: Photo requests
Nope. But I will need to get them in "shifts." Don't want to overload the office with too many at once. Likely will be three trips.
