Bio Photo "I love dead people. In fact, I come from a long line of dead people." --from the comic 'Empowered' by Adam Warren


If I manage the memorial of a family member or friend of yours, I'll be pleased to transfer. It's so exciting to find things you are looking for! :)

It annoys me when people here treat memorials like their personal property - like memorials are trading cards to collect and hoard. ಠ_ಠ You know the ones! These memorials are the property of Find A Grave. We are just caretakers.

I am *always* happy to transfer, except when the person is my own relative (and no one is closer) or ones I have a special interest in. Even those I will pass on to a relative of any distance.

I have even transferred to non-relatives with a special interest in the deceased.

Some helpful resources:

Re: Erie St. Cemetery...I was told the following: "Unfortunately, a majority of the markers in Erie Street Cemetery are either not there, or are so weathered they are unreadable. Any grave that had a marker that was readable has already been uploaded to their respective memorial pages on Findagrave."

Cleveland Necrology File (many typos) and Cleveland News Index:

Cleveland Catholic Cemeteries Association:
They are currently putting all records online. As of 9/15, the following cemeteries are done - All Saints (Northfield); All Souls (Chardon); Resurrection (Valley City); Holy Cross (Akron); Holy Cross (Brook Park); and St. Joseph (Avon). Work is ongoing on the following cemeteries: Calvary (Cleveland); and Calvary (Lorain).

City of Cleveland Cemeteries Index:

Those with a Cuyahoga County Public Library card can view many things online, including the Plain Dealer from April 7, 1845 - the present and much non-Cleveland information:

Any Ohio resident may request a CC Library card online:

PHOTO NOTE: I did not take the photos of Brooklyn Hts Cemetery in Cleveland. They were ALL originally transcribed and photographed by a very nice lady, Susanna Pretzer. She was completing a project to earn the Gold Award in Girl Scouts.
I checked with her, and have permission to post her photos and add the names. She said, "I definitely didn't know how physically and organizationally demanding it would be when I started, but that made it all the more satisfying...The idea was to get the information to the people who want it, so go for it. If it'll reach interested people who might not find it where it is currently online or in hard copy at the Western Reserve Historical Society, then it's good." --Thanks, Susanna!

Another note on PHOTOS: I give my permission to copy any photos I have taken for your own use or for another site. There are only a few -of thousands- that I have posted which I did not take personally. Just ask, please, so I make sure you are taking something I shot.

Boy Scout list from St Paul and other things
You mentioned the Boy Scout list from St Paul. Does the Church have a copy?
I am working with Trish from the church who has been as helpful as possible, she cannot control the condition of the old books. I might have another transfer after I receive a reply from her. C Eleanore Wulf might be Clamor Heinrich's wife and my second great grandmother.
Henry C Bertsch Wulf 67638752 has a maiden name, is that correct. Do you have the plot where he is buried? He has the same birth and death year as my Clamor Heinrich Wulf. His birth and death do not match my records. Clamor Heinrich's Find A Grave memorial is 184261478.
Thank you for your helpfulness and attitude.

Clarice Steward, #65634939

I think you've created two memorials for her. The other one is #65634873 created the same day. I'm assuming Riss is a nickname for Clarice. Her death cert #50218 shows the death year as 1967. I was in the process of connecting her son Allen but I won't until I know which one you're going to keep.

RE: Thomas O'Hara
Find A Grave frowns on that unless the original photo is undecipherable. I think I'll leave well enough alone - everyone is complaining these days. But you should delete your dupe. Thanks.

RE: Van Calck & Bellot
I might go and visit the cemetery either this week or the next. When I do, I'll try to find their graves (I'm not too familiar with the cemetery's layout).

If you are interested, I previously found photographs of their graves on a Belgian website,

RE: Kate Senter
The deaths listing page has all Erie Street Cemetery listed, and then her line (#96) has written on it that she was removed to Woodland. Its in the Family Search database, here:

You did a "fantastic" job -and found a photo too! I admire all the values she cared about! I spent years of my childhood in an Episcpal orphanage in Painesville, Ohio cared for by nuns. I'm captivated by storied about people's lives!

RE: Edith Wolf # 131322883
Thanks again. I am not doing well physically -and really don't need credit for her memorial (I'm not related). Could you edit her biography to "Find A Grave" standards? You've done plenty of work and you certainly should get the credit. Sincerely, MK
You wrote:
Yes, I have two famous memorials I put in. The biography would just have to be tightened up to fit find a grave's standards. They are very specific about how famous memorials are written. I'd be happy to tidy it up for you!
But at that point I would want to have you make a duplicate memorial and then I could delete mine after you transfer everything over. That way, if find a grave marks her as famous, it will show your name and it will be credited on your page.
