Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the history, the architecture, the beauty, and mostly the serenity of a cemetery, especially Hollywood Forever where I've been visiting for 31 years. I enjoy fulfilling photo requests at this cemetery the most.

Memorials are gladly transferred to anyone who'd like them - save for my own family members.

Always feel free to post a Public Message for me.

I've been seeing more and more requests for photos without any grave location information. Cemetery offices are much more likely to cheerfully provide family members with grave locations than photo volunteers, especially those of us they see often. We don't want to wear out our welcome, so to speak, and appreciate your calling or emailing the cemetery in advance to get the grave location. Please help us help you!

Currently Hollywood Forever has over 89,000 graves; their phone number is 323-469-1181 and their email address is

Please allow them plenty of time to get back to you.

RE: Buren
Hi Jim,

I'm sorry I have not answered your last post (in regard to asking the cemetery to do a probe of the Buren plot). I got 'sidetracked' to another branch of the family tree as I had just learned new information that lead to lots of new discoveries.

I DO appreciate all that you have done to help me in my search for the Buren family and I appreciate all of the great information you have shared with me. I will ask the cemetery to do a probe and if they agree, I'll let you know their findings.

I hope you and your family have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

RE: Max Bonter
Jim, Thank you so much for the transfer, and for the follow-up on better pictures. I hope the area around my grave isn't used for storage someday, don't you??!! Give me the wide open spaces.

RE: Buren
Jim, I am so sorry that none of these graves were marked! It is hard to believe none of the graves are marked, but I've encountered these situation heretofore.

The information that I posted on the memorials is the information given to me by the cemetery office. Like you, I hated to bother them so much at one time, so I called on two different days. I talked to different people and both of them gave me the information that I posted on the memorials. The same plot information was given for each person. I had copies of the memorial pages of each person when I called and I wrote the information exactly as it was given to me on each memorial.

I will call the cemetery office again and ask them to verify the information previously given to me. I will let you know what they tell me.

I DO appreciate, very much, your time and your kindness in looking for the grave markers.

Thank you, Jim!

RE: Andrew LeGore
Thank you so much for making the effort, I do appreciate your help. I rechecked sources and Frances/Francis is listed both ways.

I do agree however Frances is the most likely spelling.

RE: Ella Carter
Hi Jim -
Thank you for your continued efforts. All I know about Wilbur is he was born in 1856. I'll keep looking. Thanks.

Jim, thank you again for your help! You are going above and beyond! I think I can write a book about all the inconsistencies I am finding with "my" Selznick family. I think there is a conspiracy! Lots of laughs!!! Thank you so much once again!!!
