Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Northern CA and have been interested in Genealogy research for several years now. What an amazing adventure it's been. I was told about Find A Grave to search for more clues to my ancestors. It was one of the best places I've come across. So I decided to become a volunteer and help others if I could.

My "Home" cemetery I work at is Redding Memorial. I've been on a quest to document this Redding Cemetery since the first month I started FAG.

So now that I'm hooked, every trip or vacation we go on, I'm looking for a cemetery, what photos can I find and who else is looking for their family..


Family I'm looking for; Clary,Jones & Sherwood Family in Joplin, MO.
Oates, Owens & Guy; LA, OK, AK AL and Tenn. and you all know it just goes on from there..
Happy Hunting..

Thank-you so much for the transfer. It makes me so happy to be able to connect my family when I can. And thank-you for all the work you are doing on Find A Grave. I'm sure your making alot of families very happy when they can see their loved ones when they don't live in the area.

RE: Sibyl
no problem!! glad we could help! we are currently trying to get a headstone for a baby that was 16 days old at death and died Christmas day, 1995 - still has the grave marker from the funeral home from burial!! we actually went to forest park to talk to them about purchasing a headstone for him. the lady that helped us, Gina, was incredibly helpful! good luck getting the markers and please let me know if I can help with anything else!!

James Banks, Redding
Thanks for the photo. I thought he might be buried in his sister's plot, but it appears he is between two Mortensens. They may be related but no idea how. Mortensen is a Danish name, though, and James' dad was from Denmark.

RE: Eva Craddock
Thank you so much for the offer to transfer, but the Hulls are not family of mine. I am presently updating and care taking the majority of Shasta Masonic memorials for a fellow contributor and am exploring missing links for some of the people buried there. Hopefully all the memorials in my care will someday pass to their respective families and descendants. Glad you feel that way too. Take care, nice to hear from you again! -Mike

Burney cemetery
Thank you so much for the headstone photos in Burney cemetery. (Terry, Wilson, Wall, Barron, Berchem, and Dysle) I am sure the families appreciate it and I have made the links you requested. Happy you did this. Every time I add photos to a memorial my computer locks up so I have not added a photo for some time.
Thanks again !
