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 32 years. I enjoy fulfilling photo requests at this cemetery the most.

I'm retired due to a disability and spend much of my time at Hollywood Forever. I've had a lot of enjoyment photographing graves and folks seem to like my photos. It makes me feel useful! I claim many photo requests as I check the site several times a day. If you'd like to fulfill a particular request that I've claimed, just send me a public message and I'd be happy to unclaim it.

I've been seeing more and more requests for photos without any grave location information. Trust me, cemetery offices are much more likely to cheerfully provide family members with grave locations than photo volunteers, especially those of us they see often. Some cemeteries won't provide grave locations to photo volunteers.

Currently Hollywood Forever has over 89,000 graves; their email address is

Please allow any cemetery enough time to respond to a location request. Realistically, finding grave locations is not a priority in the day to day operation of an active cemetery. And remember, it always helps to be nice!

RE: the Goodstadts
Now I"m wondering if Anna might be the wife or relative of Jazz Drummer Victor Berton on the 2nd floor of the Columbarium.

RE: Anna Goldman's grave location
Dear Jim,

Thank you so very much for being willing to do this! I phoned the cemetery and they said she is located in Section 18, Lot 409, #5. They also said that if you come into the office, they'll show you where that is on a map, if that is helpful.

Thank you again.
