RE: Lillian A Brown Sands
Not a problem, and thank you for considering added info to the bio. I was looking through memorials yesterday and I had one for Lillian Christian I couldn't find anything on, got on the DC database and found her under Sands, and saw why she was listed as Christian on her headstone. I deleted my memorial for her and added the photo to yours. Happy New Year!

Thank you so much for transcribing the photos I took in Poland. I was not sure when I would be able to get to them and was eager to have them accessible to other people. Your kindness in doing this is very much appreciated.

RE: Denis F Scannell
You are quite welcome, and I am not related. I just posted a picture of a relative ... and then I HAVE to track the family history to link up as many relatives as I can. LOL It's an obsession. LOL God bless ... and take care.

Ella Nelson at Forest Home Cemetery
Hi! I need the burial Section and Lot Numbers in order to take a photograph for you. This cemetery's staff does not help photo volunteers, and the burial location is not available anywhere else.

Phone: 708-366-1900

Last year I fulfilled over 450 photo requests at this cemetery after the burial location was provided.

Thank you!


P.S. Please see my previous message to you from November.

Ella Nelson at Waldheim Cemetery
Hi! I am wondering if you have her memorial in the wrong cemetery.

By the time of her death in 1970 the name Waldheim German Cemetery, which merged with Forest Park Cemetery in the 1960s, was no longer being used. So a newspaper printing this name in an obituary really does not make sense if they meant this cemetery (it would say Forest Park instead).

Just up the street was Waldheim Jewish Cemetery which still exists today. I am wondering if this is the Waldheim where she is actually buried. On the cemetery webpage you can submit a request for a burial location.

Waldheim (Jewish) Cemetery: (708) 366-4541
Online submission:

I hope you will cancel your photo request until you determine which of these cemeteries she is actually buried in.


P.S. Since Forest Home will not assist photo volunteers with obtaining burial plots here is their contact information. Without the burial plot for either cemetery no one is going to find their graves. Both cemeteries have more than 150,000 burials.

Phone: 773-287-0772
