Bio and Links
Bio Photo My current interest is to find the resting places of the early believers of the Baha'i Faith, in America and around the world. As we commemorate the Centenary of the 1912 visit of Abdu'l-Baha to the West, we are remembering these founders of our world-wide Baha'i community. It's nice to keep a record of where they rest.

"I long to visit the graves of the friends of God, could this be possible. These are the servants of the Blessed Beauty; in His path they were afflicted; they met with toil and sorrow; they sustained injuries and suffered harm. Upon them be the glory of God, the All-Glorious. Unto them be salutation and praise. Upon them be God's tender mercy, and forgiveness." - 'Abdu'l-Baha, Memorials of the Faithful, p. 14

I'm glad to help. The Baha'i temple there is a favorite stopping place. Very beautiful and a great museum underground!

Priscella Hassan photo request

You are receiving this message because you have submitted a photo request for Priscella Hassan . I wanted to let you know that I will be traveling to that area from Dallas during the first week of June and I would be able to get the requested photos for you. I do need some help from you tho. While I am in the Chicago area, I intend to get as many names off the list for Evergreen Cemetery as possible. The list is growing every day and is now at 263 requests! Evergreen Cemetery is near and dear to my heart as I have several of my own family members there. If you would please call the cemetery office and obtain the burial plot locations and send them to me, I will for sure get them for you when I go there in June. If everyone could get me the locations I could really get a lot of requests done but I can't do it alone! The office number for Evergreen Cemetery is 708-422-9051. They will also be able to tell you whether or not there is a headstone. You can leave me a public message with the information, or you may email me at Please be sure to reference the requested names. Thank you!

Moore Adoptee
My name is Kristi Brown Webber and I am researching possible relatives for my cousin, who was given up for adoption in July 1965 in Rochester, NY, at birth. My cousin's birth name was "Baby Girl Moore". Her mother was listed. as being 21 (in 1965) said to have come from a well educated family, completed 2 years of college when became pregnant, wore glasses to drive and watch movies and was farsighted in ONE eye, fair and blue eyed, Protestant, Scotch-German, and said that, "Twins run in the family". The birth father was 23 (in 1965) A salesman, with prior 4 years military experience, branch undisclosed, dark hair and blue eyes, of Polish/English descent. The birth mother's family apparently lived close enough to Rochester, to drive to visit her on the weekends, while she was pregnant and confined at the North Haven/ Hillside Home for Unwed Mothers. Please let me know if you can provide any insight into this matter, it would be so appreciated! :) Thanks Krissi KJBW75@GMAIL.COM

Created the memorials # 144801838 and # 144801808.

I enjoy a good challenge, too.

Have fun!

Actually, I took them already. :)

They are for Zeddie Hart 1935-2007 and Sarale Alice Owens Jan 18, 1918 - Dec. 8, 1977.

If you want to make the memorials I would be glad to upload the photos.

Have a great day!

RE: Arna True Perron
Dear Candace, it was my pleasure to help. What a very interesting project you are involved in. By a strange twist of circumstances, a family that my family has been friends with for almost 30 years just buried their husband/father in Brea, Calif. Ehsan was from Iran originally, and his family is Baha'i. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.
