April 2017:
I've been taking photos of headstones since 2006 and am now going through this personal database that contains over 25 000 photos. I'm adding the information first and photos later. Please be patient with your requests.

I'm currently adding photos to the following finnish cemeteries:

Bergö, Jokela, Käppärä (Pori), Kärsämäen Tunnukseton (Turku), Kärsämäki (Turku), Mariegård (Mustasaari/Vaasa), Metsähautausmaa (Pori), Mustasaari Ortohdox, Mynämäki, Naantali, Puolimatka (Hyvinkää), Pyhäjärvi, Raisio, Rautatieläisten hautausmaa (Hyvinkää), St. Catherine's (Turku), St. Mary's Cemetery (Turku), St. Mary's Churchyard (Turku), Toijala, Turku Central, Vaasa New


Last names I am researching are: Zaar, Rosenberg, Ruusuvuori, Campbell, Salmi, Haapala, Orell, Kennedy, Erikivi, Saari and Holm

Welcome to my Find A Grave page!

Every single memorial on my page has been created to honor the lost loved one. Some are up to date, some are incomplete but each is there to share stories and touch lives. We shouldn't forget that every life counts and every person matters.

I do not create duplicates on purpose and I search every name before submitting a new record. However if you find two memorials for the same individual and another has been created by me, please contact me and let's get them merged.

I transfer almost without exception to family and friends but I also delete memorials if requested. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, corrections or requests.

I strive to complete each memorial, add correct dates, bio and burial information; but if you still come across a blank memorial or one that looks incomplete and it's been longer than 90 days since created it, feel free to notify me and will update it as soon as possible. Please note that genealogy and cemeteries are my hobby, not my profession. Usually I get back to you in 24 hours but since I manage these memorials in my spare time, please have patience with your requests.

Please note that I only make additions and corrections to memorials that are requested via the EDIT TAB on the upper left corner of each memorial OR email. If you post a message via virtual flower, I won't be notified. Also when you contact me, there's no reason to be rude even you would like to get a memorial deleted. Please note that rude comments will most likely get ignored. Thank you!


Jokainen luomani muistosivu on luotu kunnioittamaan jo rajan taakse siirtyneitä läheisiämme. Sivusto on sukututkimuksen ohella tarkoitettu luomaan paikka omaisille, jossa voi muistella edesmennyttä läheistä riippumatta fyysisestä olinpaikasta. Voit luoda kokonaisia sukupolvien ketjuja ja tallentaa sukuhistoriasi tuleville polville.

Löysitkö sivuiltani perheenjäsenesi?
Teen tarvittavia muutoksia ja täydennyksiä sivuihin pyydettäessä, myös tietojen poistaminen onnistuu. Olet tervetullut lisäämään kuvia ja virtuaalisia muistamisia sivuille. Voit myös pyytää sivun ylläpitämisoikeutta, jolloin saat muokata sivua haluamallasi tavalla. Täytän myös suomalaisten hautakivien kuvaamispyyntöjä (Mikä on kuvaamispyyntö?) (englanniksi) muille käyttäjille.

Ethän epäröi ottaa yhteyttä sivuihin liittyvissä ongelmissa; tämä onnistuu sivun oikeasta yläreunasta edit-nappulan kautta, julkisella viestillä tai lähettämällä sähköpostia sivultani löytyvään email-osoitteeseen.

"Hallinto-oikeus kumosi tietosuojalautakunnan päätöksen - hautakuvat saavat olla internetissä

Helsingin hallinto-oikeuden mukaan hautausmaiden hautamuistomerkeissä olevat tiedot on nimenomaan tarkoitettu kenen tahansa nähtäviksi, joten hautakivet ja niissä olevat tiedot voi julkaista esimerkiksi internetissä. Oikeuden perustelujen mukaan kysymys ei ole sellaisesta yksityisyyden suojasta, jota henkilötietolaissa tarkoitetaan."

Grace Mackay, Urray West Parish Churchyard
Hello again,

It turns out Grace is buried in lair no.199 the new extension at Urray West Churchyard, so I found her grave today and have posted a photo.

Grace Mackay, Urray West Parish Churchyard
Hello again Saari,

I had a look today for Grace Margaret MacKay's grave. According to the council's burial records, she was buried in lair No. 199 in Urray Burial Ground. I couldn't locate a headstone inscription for her. There are MacKays next to that in what I think is lair no. 198, but Grace is not mentioned.The name on what I think is lair no. 199 is Sutherland. I'll double check details tomorrow with the council. If there is no headstone inscription, would you like a photo of the general area?

RE: Michael Edward Brown Jr.
Listed on the same tombstone was either Peter Joseph or Peter Joseph Brown who died in 1998. I can transfer that one to you if you'd like.

RE: Emma Audrey Zak
You're welcome. I'm photographing the entire cemetery and had to call the office anyway. I snuck the question in and they were happy to oblige. It was probably much easier for them to answer me than someone looking for their ancestor who died in 1845 ;)

Photo request Jamie Beaton, Inverness
Hello Saari,

There is no grave for Jamie. He was cremated at Inverness Crematorium, but the Crematorium Office has confirmed that there was no subsequent burial of his ashes, so no photo possible, I'm afraid.

Photo Request Kulling
Eileen is buried next to her father Patrick. I completely missed her stone last week. They are all in one line, Eileen Kulling, Patrick Brennan, Eileen Brennan, Patricia & Erin Zuba, Rory Zuba (no stone), Edith Leonard, and then John Leonard. Judy

RE: Yates
You are welcome. Yes, they are right beside Don. My daughter told me they were buried together. It must be so as there was only one grave with 2 funeral markers on it. I took pictures of the funeral markers but decided not to add them. She had told me about the two accidents the day it happened, but it didn't dawn on me until I walked up to take the picture. It was a sad but strange thing to happen. My daughters name is Michelle Liles Yates. Her husband Roger said he was kin to them, but was unsure how. Many times stones are placed by decoration. If you will remind me, I will go back and check then. (Bobby)

Brennan & Leonard
The photos are on. I did check for other stones in the area with either the name Brennan or Leonard and did not find any others. The next time I go to Queen I will check the name Eileen Brennan Kulling on the burial index machine and I will let you know what I find. Apparently Erin was buried in section 18W originally and moved to sec 30 when her mother passed. The machine has her in sec 18W and on Thursday I searched that area and did not find anything so I sent you the notice that there was no headstone. It was not very nice out, a very cold wind on Thursday so I gave up doing any further headstone photos. I went back on Friday and that was when I found Patricia's stone with Erin's name also. I will not be going until the end of next week but I will check on the name Kulling. Have a good weekend. Judy
