|Bio and Links|
My name is Antonio. Born in my father's hometown of El Paso, Texas. My childhood was mostly in my stepfather's hometown of Truchas, NM. Later moved back to Mom's hometown of Espaņola, NM where I eventually graduated High School and then left to the Air Force. I've done some traveling, but home is Home. I began actively researching my genealogy around 2001, although it was always an interest since childhood. I've researched other family genealogies too. I frequent cemeteries looking for data. I appreciate the connection felt from seeing the final resting places of family members and connecting others to the same experience. I've come across unidentified graves due to time and erosion. So, in addition to identifiable graves, I've tried to include damaged graves with the slightest of information. I hope anyone with additional information for these graves would please share that information and save these graves from becoming lost graves. It's my ambition to try and preserve the identities of all graves I come across. On memorials I manage, I try to research what I can to not only preserve their identity, but their legacy as well. I also attempt genealogical connections when available, particularly in my own community area. |
I have lots of family and friends in the Espaņola Valley, therefore I am in a position to adequately manage and update their memorials per findagrave's "ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it." I know a few contributors are ambitious with their stats, and that's fine. Grave documentation provides a useful service and I don't see a conflict with transfer requests if it honors findagrave's ultimate goal. I hope that is considered when I make transfer requests for non-family members. Sometimes, it facilitates my ongoing research and reduces my follow up process. Some contributors are wise enough to understand this, Thank You. I enjoy the collaboration process and often share updates I come across. There is only one contributor that I have had an adverse encounter with, and that's one too many. Please work with me, so that I don't feel reluctant about working with you. I'm not a collector, I'm a researcher.
My copyright protected photos are free for viewing and private personal use, but not for dissemenating. Any competent attorney will confirm that they do not fall under "Public Domain". If there is a use for my photo, it is courteous to at least request permission before hijacking and plagerizing the photo. Depending on the project, I may be and have been accomadating. But I absolutely decline permission for paid membership sites like ancestry.com. I don't believe in my photos being used to enhance other's profit potential. Thank you to all those who have extended me the courtesy of requesting permission.
I'm as fallable as the next person, so I do welcome any and all corrections and collaborations. I do endeavor to respect the wishes of survivors of the deceased. Basic communication generally resolves many issues. May all our lives be fulfilling before the grave finds us.

|Sharon Lopez||memorial #84694879|
Hello Antonio, Great work and dedication. Thank you.
I do have a question and need a change made on the above memorial for Maria Pascuala "Pascualeta" Romero Lopez.
You say in the dialogue the names of the children for the marriage of Esquipula Tafoya and Pacaula. Where did you get this information? This is my husbands family and we do not recognize the name Anna Maria or Esquipula as being children of this couple. Candido Tafoya is the only one we are familiar with as reaching maturity and having children. We have heard rumors of a daughter that has been identified as Delphenia Tafoya but no information other than she died in 1918 of pneumonia from verbal accounts of the elders. She does not appear on any census.
You say in the dialogue the names of the children for the marriage of Nicodemos Lopez and Pascaula. We know of no child named Jose Arsenio Lopez as a member of this family. We know of no daughter named Delfina Romero as a member of this family.
I ask again for clarification... Where did you get your information? Perhaps there are records we have yet to find. My husband spent time with his grandparents Nicodemos and Pascaula until the age of 11 when she died. He would like clarification if there are documents to prove your information.
Thank you for your interest in the families of New Mexico. Please send your reply to firstname.lastname@example.org

My pleasure, glad to be able to help!

The photo icon does not appear...you should re-add it so you get photo credit...and it counts towards the percentage of the cemetery.

|Bryan Anderson||Enrique A. Herrera|
I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, Enrique A. Herrera was also a member of my grandfather's unit. This is confirmed by his gravestone.
I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but want to eventually publish something in honor of my grandfather, Gunder Anderson, and his fellow soldiers. Would it be permissible to use your beautiful photograph of the grave of Enrique A. Herrera (Find A Grave Memorial# 3870703) should I eventually publish something? I don't even know what it will look like. I'm considering a collage of all the gravestone of those I can find from Company B. One the other hand, I might make it a novel, which means no pictures at all. Either way, I want to be prepared for what ever's next.
According to my records, there are 9 solders buried in Santa Fe National Cemetery who were from Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division, second only to the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in France.

Greetings from El Paso, Texas. Back in 2012, you took a picture of the tombstone of Fev. Flavio Remigio, S.J. I have seen the picture and am trying to locate it.
At Concordia there are 28 Jesuits buried in the Society of Jesus, but his tombstone is not there.

I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "old soldiers" May I use the photo that you contributed to the memorial page for Winfield Fletcher, to post on the Vermont C.W.site?
You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.
