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

Memorials are gladly transferred to family - 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. Hollywood Forever's phone number is 323-469-1181 and their email address is info@hollywoodforever.com. Please help us help you!

RE: Louis Pogorel
Jim,

I took this information from his WW1 registration card which is available on ancestry. This was presumably filled out by himself. At that time he was going by Louis Pogorelsky which was originally Lazar Pogorelsky.

My grandfather who was born a pogorelsky is buried in new jersey and his gravestone birthdate is wrong because my uncles and mother didn't know the correct date.

My great grandfather is also a pogorelsky from Ukraine. I have reason to believe that they could be related to each other. My second great grandfather was Lazar Pogorelsky.

Regards,
Steven Weinberg

Hi Jim,

Thank you so much for all your kind assistance in this matter. I really do need this close up photo of her grave marker to identify her.

I am working on your estate at this point to find her Heir/Beneficiaries to her estate.
This information will help a lot.

Can you please call me as I have other requests you might be able to do since you are near Hollywood:

Thanks
Back before I had the digital camera, I walked the halls and graves of Hollywood forever with a pad and pen... then spent hours inputting information. Thanks for catching my spelling errors trying to read my writing.
Jim

Your photos are great and like the arrow marks in the long shots.

Pritchett photo request fulfilled
Thanks so much for sending a picture of the plaque for M. Pritchett (and for doing it so quickly). This helped me confirm it was the correct person.
I am on the East Coast, so this is a big help. Thanks again.
