Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm happy to make transfers. I need you to make your request using the “EDIT” tab on the memorial you wish transferred. That step saves time for me, as it gives me all the info I need in one place.

After spending a few years researching my family tree, I found very little information available on burials. When I found this site, I decided to volunteer, thinking it may help someone else researching their families.

I live in Baker, LA now, born and raised in Baton Rouge, and spent 3 years in Central Michigan in the late 1960's.

RE: Magnolia Cemetery
Thanks Rita. I now have found over 40 obits that mention Magnolia Cemetery in the town of Plaquemine, as the place of burial.
I decided to just leave them in limbo. Besides, I am really only working on Magnolia Cemetery in Baton Rouge.
So good to hear from you again. Have a great weekend!

RE: Magnolia Cemetery
Thanks Rita. Yes, I checked Louisiana Cemeteries some time ago and know about the one in Plaquemines Parish. I have found 30 plus obits mentioning a Magnolia Cemetery in Plaquemine, LA. Sure seems like this cemetery is somewhere in Iberville Parish; that is of course if it does exist. Maybe they changed the name of the cemetery? Doubt the newspaper could make that many typo errors.
Mary Agnes had a great idea about calling a particular church that performed the funeral service and ask them the location of the cemetery. I will try that a little later this morning. Thanks again for your help.

Magnolia Cemetery
Hi Rita,

Thought I would ask a few people if they knew or heard of a Magnolia Cemetery in Plaquemine? I am presently working with memorials at Magnolia Cemetery in Baton Rouge. I keep finding people being buried in Plaquemine @ Magnolia Cemetery? Could there be another name for this cemetery?

Thanks for any info you can send my way.

RE: Doal Freeman
Hi Rita, Thank you for making the correction. I don't need the memorial transferred to me.

James Sanchez Jr.
would you know anything else about this person. His company name? My father in law is looking for someone he served with in Vietnam. Wondering if this could be him.
