"What Makes You Think We Are Related?"
I enjoy working on my family genealogy and discovered Find a Grave to now help others. 90%+ of all my entries are entered from photos I have taken. I also cross reference some with Cemetery or Genealogy records, adding information for families to discover.
I have no problem maintaining memorials. If you are related within the FAG guidelines and want the memorial transfered, send me an edit. This is found by clicking on the EDIT tab at the top right of the memorial.
If I have made any errors or you have information you want me to add, Biographical sketches are welcomed, please also send me an edit so that I can correct/add them. Feel free to add an IMPROVED photo. I have learned that no matter what the light is like you can never get all great pictures. Please ask to use photos on another site or personal use.
My travels so far have included WA, OR, VT, NV, ID, MT, FL, LA, British Columbia and who knows where next!!
I photograph when I see the need. I am currently working on (with a team), photographing the HUGE Fairmount Cemetery in Spokane Washington, 12.2014. Let me know is you are interested in helping. We are over 1/4 done! I am in Coeur d'Alene Idaho.
Thank you all for this site and all of you that are doing great works here.

|PassingTime||RE: Heads up|
When I was at Riverside I was primarily looking for family so I did a LOT of jumping around in the sections. I did do all of the Columbarium Niche, I think it is in the Peace section(northside with Jesus' arms stretched upward) and the columbarium in the Daisy Lutheran Garden. I also started on the south end of the "Fraternal" section however, the sprinklers were on so I jumped around there quite a bit also. I pretty much had to stay close to the road. Hope you can make sense of what I just said! And I'm always glad to add additional information to the memorials--thanks for sending them.
|deanna french||RE: wrong cemetery?|
There are duplicate Memorials for Marcus Bundy. I don't recall ever posting one at Riverside, but evidently I did. I had also put one on the one at Pleasant View. I will take down the one at Riverside. I know the creator of his Memorial, Tammy Wells (Grube) I'm surprised she hasn't "shot" me for putting him the wrong place! His grave is at the top of a slope that goes down the old side of the cemetery to the old unused vault and exits below the new entrance out the original entrance. I'm sorry about this. I am very familiar with the Bundy's, and the cemeteries in this town, so feel a bit stupid! Sorry!!!
|Lisa M Little||RE: Eugene Little Photo Fairmount|
Rosalie ~ Thank you so much for your note. It saddens me to think that Eugene may have been a pauper at the time of his death. I will leave the request open to see if anyone else happens to take a look. Thank you for all the hard work you are doing documenting burials. ~ Lisa

Yes, crime is an unfortunate reality. But the cemeteries at the foot of Canal Street are somewhat removed form the city. There is a cemetery which is in dire need of photographing. It is called Holt Cemetery. it is only a few blocks past the foot of Canal Street to the right, just off City Park Avenue. I have done some photographing there but have been too tied up with St. Patrick I, II and III to give it my all. It is a huge cemetery that is mostly military and their families. It is the only cemetery in New Orleans that the graves are all below ground and it is in a fairly decent neighborhood, up against Delgado College. The gates are open during the day and there is a guard shack in the front.Also, the cemetery directly across the street from the foot of Canal Street is beautiful, Greenwood Cemetery. It is huge has lots of fabulous tombs and has not been photographed much because it is so huge no wants to take it on! It covers about 150 acres and was established in the 1850's. It is completely safe. To see what it looks like type into the cemetery Lookup: Greenwood Cemetery, USA, Louisiana, Orleans Parish and click on the link provided to read about it's history. St. Patrick has several mausoleums but sadly they are not remarkable as they are not as old as the cemetery. The cemetery on the corner - Cyprus Grove #1 - has the old style mausoleums which are original to the cemetery. they are part of the brick wall along the left side of the property. The columns in front are suppose to look like the gates of a city in Egypt (I think). Interesting side note:In the latter 1700's Cyprus Grove #2 used to sit in the middle of what is now an intersection, and was a confederate cemetery which had thousands of soldiers (Confederate, Union and civilians predating the war) who mostly died from yellow fever during and after the civil war. In the 1920's the dirt road (City Park Avenue)was paved and widened so the government paid to have all the union soldiers moved to the Chalmette National Cemetery but refused to move the confederate ones so they just paved over them! and removed all evidence of the cemetery. Even though it is defunct, it has a memorial page and I have added some of the names. New Orleans has a long and colorful history, no doubt but nothing dull! Liz

Hi Rosalie from Idaho! So glad to hear you will be visiting our city. We have some of the most beautiful, most photographed and oldest cemeteries in this country. Having finished mapping St. Patrick #I, I'm still trying to get St. Patrick II and III all posted. The reason the St. Louis Cemeteries have so many requests is an unfortunate one. When our city was young all these cemeteries were on the outskirts of town and as the city grew, of course, no one wanted to live near our "Cities of the Dead". So, naturally where the land was the cheapest became the poorest areas. Now, these areas are also the most dangerous. I would NOT recommend going to St. Louis cemeteries I or II unless you are with a tour group. Because the tombs are above ground and stand quite high, ten feet in you cannot be seen from the street. Some also have very high brick walls around them making them very attractive to criminals. If you would like to visit a couple of cemeteries (One of which is one of the oldest in the city) you can catch the street car on Canal Street and ride it to the foot of Canal Street going away from the river. There are five cemeteries there. Cyprus Grove and St. Patrick #I on one side and St. Patrick #II, Judah Dispersed and Odd Fellows (which is closed to the public, but you can see thru the gate) on the other. You can go online and find information about one of the many cemetery tours which would be great because they will take you to several cemeteries and tell you all about their history and give you time to take photographs. Just type in "Cities of the Dead Tour New Orleans". I DO NOT suggest going to any of these old cemeteries alone, however, especially in the evening. If you are staying in a hotel, the concierge can book a tour for you. I hope this has been helpful. Bonne Chasse!

|Jack Cady||RE: Allen/Allan correction|
I finished posting all of the photos of tombstones in lawn 13 A.
I still have a half dozen of those concrete markers that are not readable except for the plot number. In a few days I will go to the office to see if they can tell me who is there.
I'm glad I got this done, but I wouldn't want to do it again.
|Twila||Alelia May Mason Holder|
Thank you for taking and posting the headstone picture for Alelia. I truly appreciate your willingness to do this.
Have a wonderful week.
