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

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 am a photographer, not a genealogist.

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.

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: Larsons at Hollywood Forever
I'm not sure who those other Larsons are. Maybe I'll have to do some more research. I appreciate the pictures of Grace and Alice, however

RE: Henry Kershaw
If I remember right, the marker reads H.W. Kershaw. I was one tier up from the floor if I remember right, it's been a while!! Thanks!

Hollywood Forever
Thank you so much for taking & posting the headstone photo for Benjamin Herskowitz in Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Next time you are there would you look & see if his wife Ann Herskowitz is next to or near him. She does not have a memorial in Find A She died in 1994, many years after Ben. I have not found her yet but believe she might be near him. Your time & effort to take the photo for Benjamin is very much appreciated. Thank you.
