Need a transfer, please just ask. I am not related to any of the people I have listed memorials for here and it would be my honor to transfer anyone to family who can do them honor.

Holwick's 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!

Hi! There is no way for the photo volunteer to obtain the burial plot. This cemetery will not help us.

Please, if you expect your photo requests to be fulfilled, contact the cemetery and obtain the burial plot for the local photo volunteers.

Phone: 773-287-0772

This cemetery is roughly a square mile in size and it has over 150,000 burials. No one can find the burials you are looking for (since 2012) without the burial plot. Please let me know if you have any questions in regards to this information.

Good afternoon Sir/Ma'am. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials, and the information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request. Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck! Ace

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year I successfully completed 200 photo missions at just Forest Home that had the grave location information provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year I have victoriously concluded 900 photo missions with 150 triumphs already in 2014.

Alice Pedigo photo request
My husband and I are planning to drive to Geary on the 16th of February to take pictures of the Lyon family plot. I wouldn't mind taking a picture of Alice's headstone.
Do you know about where she is buried at the cemetery?
Claimed photo jobs expire in 14 days. So I'll wait to claim the job within the allotted timeframe. Just trying to plan ahead!

Cowan's in Lincoln Memorial Cemetery
Well, I done did it as you requested and got pics for your Cowan's. It is not easy getting good pics in the winter. Any time of year is better than winter! You about freeze your fingers off trying to get all the dirt and moss scrubbed off the stones so you can see what they say on them and the lighting is bad in the winter. Anyway, I tried.
Do I sound like a big cry baby or what?! :-]

Reminder for Franklin & Mary Holwick
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace

Thank you so much for the transfers! I know that was a lot of work! I think I have all the listings in the correct cemetery now. Now I can start adding the names of those who aren't on Findagrave yet.
