Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a fun and interesting hobby for me, as well as a great way to perform a meaningful community service to others. Someday I hope to have more free time to devote to it. Yes, I'm in it for the numbers! The more memorials that are on this site, the better chance of people finding relatives. That's what this is all about.

In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will make exceptions if I am personally doing work for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

I will not cut and paste raw data from census records, death indices, etc. A nicely written bio is preferable.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

I also found the name in the same cemetery as the splittstoesser burials, I'm looking for a meta hoffeld, who I'm hoping, is also in Inglewood she is a missing piece! If so, she is also Wiechert!

Rufus and Sarah Weir Goodrich
B.J. Thank you so much for the photos of Rufus and Sarah (Inglewood, Plot, Lake Lot 16) and for the photo of the row of gravestones. I can see (from the left to the right) William W. McDonald, Sarah Weir McDonald, Mary McDonald Goodrich and Rufus S Goodrich there are two more stone directly after Rufus and (to the right) then two beyond that (those may be a different lot).

Question: Did you happen to have photographed the two stones next to Rufus Goodrich? They could possibly be family. Thanks so much for the special effort in taking photos for all of us who can't be in CA. SMF, Fort Scott, Kansas

RE: Vance Ziegler
B.J., I sent a request to Bill Grinstead who has posted headstone photos under the dupe and asking him to please transfer the photos to your memorial. Thanks for everything. Pat

Gosh, Thanks for all the research. Do you want me to transfer the memorial to you to keep it updated? Will be glad to.
