Bio Photo "You have to let your body sleep to let your soul live on" - Ozzy

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. And PLEASE, if you ask me a question, have the decency to have your messages enabled. How do you expect a response?

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.

RE: Photos and Edits
Thanks, BJ!

If you have a photo for the new marker, please go ahead and make an entry for them and send a link to our email so we can research them a bit. At the least, it's a cenotaph, and should be recorded.

Thanks again for all your hard work!!

Hulett family bios
B. J.
I would be very grateful if you could write up the Hulett family bios, and say some of what you've said about the prevalence of deafness in the family. I'm going to ask Jim about it (from the medical point of view) because he is descended from the Huletts as well. I often think he's deaf but it's really selective hearing; he tunes me out when he doesn't want to hear what I'm saying.
And if it feels safe, please send me your email address. If it's in my AOL address book, it isn't showing up.
Thanks so much,

RE: Sorry, one more thing.
Heading off to Marvin's funeral now, BJ. He was the last of his cohort to have worked with Jung, and his death marks the end of an era. Plus he was a dear friend and I will miss him a lot. Thanks for your message and your help. And if you need anything else in VT, just let me know.

RE: They were wrong . . .

Thank you so much for the photos. I really appreciate it. I hadn't found an obituary of Charles Hobbs so I didn't know where he was buried.

Now that they've mowed, has Ella Stuteville's gravestone been revealed?

RE: Sorry, one more thing.
I can't thank you enough, not only for the prompt to "get with it" on Marvin's memorial but for explaining what the heck was wrong with my membership page. I've been writing to find-a-grave and to my computer guru for two days trying to understand why the formatting was so messed up.
Sure hope I can repay the favor one day.

B. J.

Are you a family member or friend of Ryma Spiegelman. Her husband died yesterday and he was a dear colleague of mine and I would very much like to create his memorial. But I don't want to do that if you are closer related or have been asked by the family to do this.

Please let me know.

Thank you very much,

Janet Muff
