Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I enjoy doing family history and have actively been doing this in our families for about 20 years. We are the family genealogy contacts for both sides of our families and have many wonderful stories, pictures and information about all of the them. Would love helping those in our area with any information or gravestone pictures of their family.

Eliz Kidd in Calvary, Santa Rosa
"Sue", owner of above only manages 51 sites but has no bio/contact and I desperately need to get in contact with her, however, she has you as only one of three "Friends". Is there any way to give her my e-mail or my cell (740) 362-4135 or my addr, 4871 E. Harney Lane, Lodi, CA 95240? She has put Wm Kidd as the husband and, even tho she may not know the family, where did she get this info? Am helping Wm Kidd, descendant, in Hydesville, CA, locate any info on his g-g-gf as, from DNA, his real name is probably Thomas Bollen! If true, he is a g-son of my 4g-gf, Nathaniel Bolen(1779-1870), of Culpepper, VA. A great mystery! Any help will be much appreciated. po

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your cemetery photo on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Hello Mary, Your mother was married to Walter Baylor Hill. My Uncle was married to Virginia Helen Hill, the sister of Walter. I need information about Virginia, if you have it? Virginia was born 1919 in California and married in Santa Cruz. She had a daughter Wanda. Do you remember any of these details? Can you tell me if Walter had children? I need to find a living relative who may know details. Thank you so much for help. You can reply to my email is you like,

Best regards,
Lilly Martin

I am doing the research on our Bergman side of the family. My cousin sent me this information:

I just found out there is a big Bergman group in the Adelaide area of Paso Robles. There is a whole cemetery dedicated to "Bergman's". Apparently they were all Mennonites.

Would you know about this cemetery?

Thank you,

RE: Albert Harrison Allen
You are very nice3! It is indeed GREATLY appreciated. We have been looking for Alberts grave for years now! We have found that his daughter bought the plot and believe she may be close to him Her name is Laura or Kate and likely has a last name of Young, but we simply don't know for certain.

Hi Mary and Ron,
I was reading your bio as I have a grandfather located in the Paso Robbles Cemetery and noticed that you did a photo of another relative there, Glen Burbidge. I was hoping that I might be able to impose upon you to photo this grave site for me? I am also anxious to see whom might be beside him.
Thank you so much for the work you are doing!

Hi Mary,
I am the Project & Publications Chair for the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society and as such have been working on indexing and photographing all of the Cemeteries in the County.
Since you and your husband have done Willow Creek, there is no need for us to repeat the process.
I am curious as to where you got your information for interments which have no headstone. I have an existing database that was done in 2003, so am adding interments which have existing headstones.

I am also finding that we indicate the presence of markers, but they do not appear to have been photographed.
