Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Stay-at-Home-mom with two little ones. I have always taken an interest in family tree histories. My father was an avid fan of Find a Grave and he introduced me to this site before he passed away in 2008. Find A Grave Memorial# 46644773. I am happy to be a photo volunteer for much of the Los Angeles area!

You can feel free to use creative commons with the photos I take if you'd like to use them in your genealogy or family history projects.

-I have recently acquired many of the memorials for Hollywood Forest Lawn. I am happy to help with transfers and edits, but please be COURTEOUS and thorough if you have an inquiry or concern. I am a volunteer.

I LOVE to find relatives and homes for the memorials I manage, so IF you see a memorial you'd like TRANSFERRED, I'm more then happy to do so, just put in the request. (Will transfer ANY except those in my Family Virtual Cemetery). ***Also, to expedite edits please use the EDIT tab that Find a Grave has recently provided in the upper right hand corner of all memorials. "Suggested corrections" should be used for transfer requests or other edits that are not options under the EDIT tab.***

Please note, when listing random memorials, I often try to link families together to the best of my ability, using my judgment and common sense. So, I imagine some of the relationship links I have created may not be accurate and I'm always happy to update or change if you can help.
Please do not send me requests to change the entry of MAIDEN name for Males whose name origin indicates that they are LATINO. This name is often their mother's maiden name and used for lineage purposes. Maybe a suggestion would be for Find A Grave to add an entry space for this.

My family lines are Schmidt/Wassem and Johnsen/Hale. My husband's family lines are Alves/Carvalho and Bacellar/Huet.

Thank you for all your trouble. Too bad their graves are unmarked but the photos are much appreciated.

Oops, didn't mean to send that -- yet I wonder if you are related. Her father, Nicholas Plein was my mother's uncle. I think she married Oris Miller (1902) before McMichael. I'm missing a lot of info. about her.

Hello and thank you for all your work in maintaining so many memorials.

You maintain the memorials of Harry G Edkins and Emily L Edkins. I am wondering if you have more information about them. I noticed you have a huge number of memorials and you said you recently acquired a large number of them from Hollywood Forest Lawn so you may not know anything about them. In particular I am looking for the maiden name of Emily and further info. They are my great uncle and aunt so don't meet the transfer requirements but if you want to release them I will take them # 85868893 and # 85868892.

You maintain, the memorial for Harry S. Crossan. Do you happen to have any other information on him? I am not sure this is the Harry Crossan I am looking for! Thanks for your time.

Hello Carolyn,
I was hoping you would transfer Merry Dockery's memorial to me. She is my brother-in-law's mother, and I am building their family tree for them for the holidays. Thank you so much for your consideration.
Most Sincerely,
Dannie Lee
