Bio

This is a fun and interesting hobby for me, as well as a great way to perform a meaningful community service to others. Someday I hope to have more free time to devote to it. Since March 2013 I have taken over management of approximately 25,000 memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills, at his request. As of January 2019 I have taken over management of another approximately 25,000 memorials at Woodlawn Memorial Park (Compton) at the request of WMP. I am a Member of the Woodlawn Photo Volunteers Google Group (formerly a Yahoo Group). We were in the process of photographing all visible markers at Woodlawn Memorial Park in Compton, California for several years.

June 2018: I am adding this back into my profile after seeing it copied verbatim on someone else's bio. I deleted this portion in about 2016 and was surprised to see that it had been copied: In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the "Suggest Edit" tab. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos. I HAVE NEVER ASKED FOR OUT OF GUIDELINES TRANSFERS. I HAVE HAD PEOPLE TRANSFER RELATIVES TO ME WITHOUT MY ASKING.
***************************************************************
PLEASE, people, stop blasting those who have high 'numbers'. Can you see that some of us have been doing this a long time, we love what we are doing, and we have worked hard to get names on here so YOU can find them.
*****************************************************************
Regarding out of guidelines transfers: You need to ask yourself what there is to gain by having your name on the memorial of a distant relative that you know nothing about other than your relationship. Please just be content that you are finding relatives on here and can honor them with flowers and tokens and put them in a virtual cemetery. Bullying people to transfer and other behavior that violates the Community Rules with get you NO WHERE.
