Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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. If you find a memorial that I maintain, unless they are in my Virtual Family Cemetery, then I have no information on them other than their burial location.

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 via the "EDIT" option. (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.

Tried to transfer, but still shows it is maintained by you. Is it supposed to list me as the one maintaining?

Could I please have a transfer on Joseph P. Murray, # 85919685? Mr. Murray and my father worked at the same fire station, and I am researching that era. If you take photos also, I would like to request a photo of the memorial, too. Thanks very much.

Thank You
Thank you for photographing and creating a space here for my grandparents(the Tomei's) and my great-grandparents(the Shacklett's). My grandparents had two children, and only one of them had a child. And I'm it. I'm childless at 50 so it looks like the end of the line. Because of Find A Grave and your work, something of their memory will go on and I am grateful.
