Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy research for over 15 years. I enjoy taking photos and adding the information to this site in hope that it will help someone researching their family. I especially enjoy filling volunteer photo requests because it combines my love of photography, genealogy and volunteerism. If you would prefer I remove information on a family member please let me know and I will delete it. If you see any mistakes or have additions to my postings, please let me know and I'll make corrections.

Tip: Please include the gravesite location when requesting a photo. Most cemeteries only give out gravesite information to relatives. This can be done by calling the cemeteries directly.

Thanks BK for all the information on my memorials. You're working me to death.

RE: John W. Enggren
Hi! I was wondering if you would consider transferring the management of this listing to me.
John was my great-grandmother's step-son and I am in the process of adding this family to Findagrave and would like to be able to link him to his parents.

The memorial number is 90951609.

Thanks you!

RE: Transcriptions?
Hi Cara,

A transcription was made of the cemetery in 1917. My 11th great grandfather is presumed buried there Joris Jansen Rapalje, though he doesn't have a marker. It turns out there are more burials by far than markers. I discovered the 1917 transcription last week and spent the weekend adding the remaining 287 names to find a grave, as well as updating memorials with what information I had and calculating birth dates. With the deterioration of many of the stones now unreadable, the record taken nearly 100 years ago should be preserved. Thanks for adding memorials and photos! It makes such a huge difference for those of use seeking information so far away, I am in Oregon. Hopefully you or other volunteers will find the time to full photograph the cemetery and pictorially preserve what is left for the future generations.:-)

Thanks, Erin

Jeremiah G. Hamilton

I am a descendant of Jeremiah G. Hamilton. He and his wife Eliza Jane Morris had nine children, the first one when she was 14 years old. Here is the list of the family members who are buried with them in Greenwood cemetery in Brooklyn:
Miranda (1835-1895), Evelina (1842-1927),Theodore 1850-1911, Josephine (1854-1926) and Walter 1854-1913, Cora (1855-1855) and Jane (1855-1857), and Camilla (1857-1862).

Adelaide (1847-1918) is not buried with them.

Eliza Jane's mother, Margaret Morris (1793-1868) and her brother George H. Morris (1820-1873) rest with them too.

I doubt that the picture you have put next to Jeremiah G. Hamilton is a picture of him.Would you give me your source so I could verify?

Best regards,

hi BK, i have a question
i made a photo request for a memorial page you put up for Berinthia "Berry" Berenson Perkins (Find A Grave Memorial# 76415541)but there seems to be a problem with it. here is what i got in an email from someone who tried to locate this:

"There is no monument or cenotaph to the 9/11 victims in Green-Wood. Some identified remains were buried in marked graves by families or by the City, and those individuals are listed in the cemetery's online burial list. But there is no cenotaph memorializing unidentified remains.

"Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As a result, we are removing it. If you can fix the problems that were reported and believe a photo can be acquired, please feel free to make a new request.

"Link to memorial page for Berinthia Perkins:"

so i am wondering if you actually saw some sort of gravesite for her or was it a 9/11 memorial? thanks. orleans.
