Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started doing this research on the cemeteries from the area where I was raised, but once addicted, I go on and on. The memories of those from home are wonderful. I've even been able to go back in my photo albums and find photos to add to many memorials. I have no specific family I'm looking for, I just want to keep those memories alive.

Most of the contributors on Find A Grave have been wonderful to work with. Only a few haven't been willing to make additions, links or add bio's. I try really hard to include a bio with as many memorials as possible. Many old obits, I pull out of my scrap books. I feel the obits/bio's gives life to the person that we've lost, as well as gives us names to search for links. Sometimes I make mistakes so please do let me know so I can correct them.

Remember, "No one is truly gone, until they are forgotten".

Lester F. Conrad
Hi Shirley,
Lester is buried in Cortez Cemetery. Your entry is unknown burial #65527133 created in 2011. There is now an entry # 98970205, with burial and photos created in 2012 by Doris Jaques Bair. The two of you might want to combine what you have and delete one of them. Doris will probably work with you on it, she is a nice lady.
Have a good week ahead...........

I do not add published obituaries to memorials due to copyright laws.

Hi Shirley, as I explained on April 29, I do not currently own a working laptop and am finding that copying and pasting on my phone is difficult. However, I did consider you and did that for Tommy Lopez.

If you can send obituaries to the Find A Grave directors, perhaps you could just send them to me in the Edit section.

RE: Bob Montgomery
I am kind of related to Gladys, she is the oldest daughter. She is my sisters mother in law and she has asked me to help her with her family. She has a pedigree chart with her grandparents on it and that is where I got the information. Thanks for adding it.

RE: Lopez #161283864
Shirley, I couldn't agree with you more. I have several memorials that need the obituary. It's just difficult to copy and paste it on with my phone. I need some time on one of my kids' laptops or some time on one at the library.

RE: Norma McCoy #156112407
In response to your Question Effie Layton Becker is my grandmother and Norma Jean McCoy is my Aunt. I have Effie's death certificate which shows Fred Becker as her husband. I have obituaries showing Fred Becker as husband and also Find a Grave Memorial 116405347 showing Fred Becker as her husband. Aunt Norma was 1 of 11 children. Charles Edward Becker was a brother to Norma and my mother was her sister. I can provide additional documents if needed.
Do you have info on Norma's children or other relative links?
