Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Retired Sailor. I enjoy looking for "Stones" in my quest to find my ancestors and to help others. You have my permission to use any headstone marker photo I have taken so long as it is NOT for a commerical venture.

Transfer Requests:
Generally, I will only transfer memorials within Find A Grave guidelines. To request a transfer, use the suggest a correction link on the "Edit" tab for the memorial you are requesting. Please include your relation to the person you are requesting.

Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits!
""To suggest a correction (SAC) click on the edit tab of the memorial that needs to be corrected. Then click on the link which best describes where your edit should occur. Enter your correction, when you're done, click submit edit. Your request will be sent to the manager of the memorial and will appear in the managers' profile under the Edits tab.

Managers will no longer receive correction emails. They must go directly to their profile page and click on the Edits tab. Managers can approve, deny or ignore, suggested corrections. It's quick and easy!

The exception:
Requesting a transfer, adding family links, or other corrections are still handled the same way. Click on "suggest any other correction or addition," type your message and press "send this message." The manager of the memorial will receive an email.""

RE: Forest Lawn Mem Cemetery Photos
Don, Thanks so much for your fast response. I just
got a notice that the CRM for the plot means
that John Welding was cremated and ashes returned
to mortuary.

Thanks, Robert Carlson

Forest Lawn Mem Cemetery Photos
Hi Don, Are you still taking photos of grave
markers at the Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in
Omaha? I see there are 72 requests but I only have
one for John C. Welding.

Thanks, Robert Carlson

RE: Maisenbacher @ Forest Lawn
Dear Mr. Watkins:

Thank you for your Find A Grave contributions, and your photo volunteer.

Alas, no tombstone for Anna Marie & Mathias (Jr) Maisenbacher :( You saved me a trip from Illinois to Omaha Nebraska to look for their graves!

Over the 4th of July holiday, my mother and I went to Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield Illinois. We saw Margaret Meyers and Mathias (Sr.) Maisenbacher's tombstones.

Abraham Lincoln is also buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery!

John B.

In the 1960s I worked at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha. Used to visit with a nice cubby man who worked there as a projectionist. I remember he used to tell me stories of when he was in the Army he was with the group that searched and hunted the legendary Poncho Villa in Mexico. That projectionist was Ross Hatton. Thanks for getting a great photograph.
