Bio and Links
Bio Photo I do this to preserve the memory of those gone before us, and to help family members with their genealogical efforts.

I am currently working on Municipal and Memorial cemeteries in Galveston, Texas. Most of the information for memorials I've made for Galveston comes from death certificates. Please be aware that there are MANY errors in death/burial records and that information does not always match.

Most of the memorials I contribute are not related to me and I am more than happy to make transfers so that these end up in the hands of their loved ones. I do try to add as much information as I can to my memorials to help tie families together, but mistakes are easy so please let me know if I've made an error.

Please don't hesitate to send me corrections or additions. Feel free to use any gravestone photos I have contributed for your personal ancestry use.

IF YOU ARE DOING RESEARCH IN GALVESTON- Please be aware that there are THREE different cemeteries bordering 59th St. Lakeview Cemetery is the largest and is between 57th and 59th Streets. Lakeview does not cross over 59th St. Municipal Cemetery is to the Northwest at the intersection of 59th and T . Memorial Cemetery is directly south of Municipal in the same lot. The border between Memorial and Municipal is not defined, but Memorial does have curbs making it somewhat easier to distinguish the two.

RE: Luthern Cemeteries
Yes yours are there is a big mixup caused by someone when they entered the Cemetery as Christ Lutheran, Truth is it usto be called St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery, now it is simply Lutheran Cemetery --- there never was according to the County Court Clerk a time it was Called Christ Lutheran. iam trying to get all the graves merged to one since there is but one cemetery.
here are are two sites you can see what i mean

http://www.okcemeteries.net/ellis/lutheran/lutheran.htm

http://www.okcemeteries.net/ellis/ellism.htm

Why people wanted to start two is beyond me

Tkz, your are correct
thank you

photo on wrong memorial
Hi. A few weeks ago Find a Grave was accidently putting photos onto the wrong memorials. Could you remove the photo that was added to "Dr Henry F Andersson " who is buried in Brookside cemetery, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Memorial# 131640607 I imagine you will need to re-add that photo to the correct memorial as well.
Thanks
Memorial# 131640607
