Bio and Links
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 (

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!

Are you related to the Vail/Hathaway family
Nellie Irene Vail/Hathaway is my great aunt.
I just discovered this as I was able to uncover our family mystery of WHO our grandfather really was.. Thanks to DNA programs I was able to determine that the RICHARD HALE in our tree (named grandfather) was actually GEORGE W VAIL, Nellies brother.
would like to exchange info if your willing

Thank you for photo
Thank you for the photo of Ronald "Dale" White in the Burns Cemetery. It is very nice. He was a first cousin to my deceased husband in Missouri.

Can you tell me what her mother's name was? I can't read it clearly on the death certificate. Thank you.

Ralph E Reed
I was hoping to link Charles Franklin Reed (Find A Grave Memorial# 33267255) to Ralph E. Reed (Memorial# 101380811) as father and son. Do you by chance have any information to link these two?

Oregon help
Hello, Can you tell me the best way to get a copy of a death record from Union county, OR in 1907. I have not researched in Oregon, and I saw that you have a few death records posted. Thank you
