Bio and Links

My family research started in 1980. I enjoy helping others in their family research.

In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

RE: Sarah Friedman
I transferred this to you. If you want to change it, that's your decision.

RE: Cloverdale Cemetery, Chino, Ca.
I do not have Jason Voss. I think you might be referring to my uncle, Melvin Wilson. I will do further research to make certain I do have the correct cemetery for him.

RE: Thomas Eric Duncan
The individual who created the first memorial either deleted it themselves or Find A Grave had it removed. I now noticed someone else has created another memorial for him, after mine.

RE: Thomas Eric Duncan
That is ridiculous. I have spoken with someone from Find A Grave before and they removed the memorial that was created prior to death. I cannot believe that people create memorials prior, especially famous people.

I received your email about my memorial 136972514 being a duplicate. I now see that however the creator of this original memorial did so days before this man passed away. That violates Find A Grave rules. Because of this I have contacted administrators and asked them what they would like me to do. Thanks ~john
