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 - 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 week after week. 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!

RE: Rosa Semel's photo- thanks! more?
Ooops! I got mixed up as to who we're looking forward. You already know where Rosa is. I'm in my 70s now and make 3 or 4 mistakes like this every day.

Many thanks for your headstone photography. I know what's involved in traveling to the cemetery, finding the plots, sometimes cleaning the headstones, taking the pictures, and uploading them; all for a perfect stranger. I really appreciate your efforts.
Thanks and best regards, Karl Hamlin

Thank you for your photograph of Rosa Semel!

Do you happen to have one of her son Aron Semel too? The one that's there is very blurry. Take a look.

Thanks again,

RE: the Foxes at Hollywood Forever
I just saw that the couple was in the same crypt.
I will call the cemetery. I assume I had the wrong plot location for my Jacob.

Great job.

Thank you for the update. I look forward to the photos.
Is there still a chance you are going over to Hillside sometime soon?

RE: Alberta Singer
Wonder why Alberta's grave doesn't have a tombstone. I visited the graves about 66 years ago. I lived in Hollywood and moved away when I was 14. Seems to me I would have noticed that there wasn't a grave marker. But then again I was a teenager.
Thanks, Dione Bell Hayes

RE: Jacob Fox in Beth Olam
Yes, good catch. I thought I requested Jacob and Linda Fox, but apparently I didn't.
He is at Beth Olam sec 16, row D grave 98.

I missed another cousin:
Louis Roud
Plot: Beth Olam sec 17, row P grave 43

I just add a request for both.

RE: improved photo
That's a great suggestion!

Thank you, I will do that!
