I have done genealogy for my family many years. I am also a look-up volunteer for several genealogy websites. Now I am in the process of mapping the Burns, OR cemetery and making a list of all the burials there, marked or not. I am trying to make sure all of them are posted on Find A Grave. Due to the large number of graves I have added (over 2,000 and still adding), I do not have the time to personally add info to the individual graves. I post what info I have at the time. If you have additional info send it to me through the edit tab on the memorial. I am also very willing to transfer ownership of any of the Burns graves so the proper info can be added to each one.
Harney County Death Certificates I noticed that you have added Diana Greb's Death Certificate photos to some of your memorials. Are the Harney County ones available online somewhere?
Her photos for Linn County are a bit hard to find, but they are online at the Linn Genealogical Society (http://www.lgsoregon.org/lgstng/browsemedia.php?mediatypeID=deacert)
At last report she had not convinced anyone to host the ones for Benton County, but she did send me a disk with all of the ones through 1962. I can furnish those for you if you would like).
I am currently seeking a DC for Martha Bardwell, the mother of Annie (Bardwell) Hurlburt (# 14819266). Martha is supposed to have died in Harney County in 1925; I believe that she is indexed as Martin Bardwell in the Oregon Death Index. Her memorial is # 147770306.
I have a friend in Salem who can fetch & scan individual Death Certificates for me, but if they are available more simply, I would prefer not to trouble her.
Thanks for all of your work at Find a Grave, and have a great weekend!
