Bio and Links
Bio Photo We appreciate the help we have gotten from others.

We created most of the memorials for Desert Lawn Memorial Park from photographs of the headstones. Currently we are adding information from the California Death Index (CADI) to the memorials. A great big shout out to contributor Bethany who has also been working on this project, adding information for many hundreds (perhaps over a thousand) memorials.

We are members of the Antelope Valley Genealogical Society. There is a great deal of information about local cemeteries on their website.

With the exception of Jack's parents, the memorials at Desert Lawn are not our relatives and we gladly will transfer outside of guidelines.

Please feel free to use our photos for your own non-commercial purposes.

Hello Jack and Ruth,

Would you be willing to transfer Analee "Sammie" Cook to me? She is my Aunt. I'd really appreciate it! She had no children of her own so I'd like to take care of her memorial.

Thank you so much for your time and efforts!

RE: Rose and Rollin Moyer
Sorry, my mistake. For some reason the pages with the cemetery listing were showing on one page and also on the next. Sort of like double vision but not. Of course it was a long day and maybe I was just too tired and didn't look close enough.

I had seen several names of fathers and sons in that cemetery or close relatives with same or similar names I thought I'd check. As you can see, I also make plenty of mistakes.

By the way, do you know why that cemetery is posted with so many No Trespassing signs?

Thank you for your response and I'll check the next day before I send a message.
