I am glad to share any information about the memorials that I manage. I have personal knowledge about many of them and welcome questions and correspondence.

My intent is to share family history (not just mine) so that it's not forgotten. Often I will ask for a transfer, add information and links and then transfer it back. I love it when bio's and obit's are included and families are linked!

I LOVE my old photos of relatives. I share them freely to help keep their memory alive for future generations. If you use any of my family photos, acknowledging the source isn't necessary, but it would be appreciated and keeps us all in touch.

I love the Find-A-Grave community! Thank you to the folks out there who are responsible managers and take good care of their memorials with pleasure. A big thank you to the folks who accidentally make a duplicate and correct it when brought to their attention.

Here's an email excerpt from fellow graver, Alicia Roundy Houston. I love this! She nailed a trait that so many of us share:

...after a couple of attempts (and subsequent diversions that kept me sidetracked for hours and hours)

RE: contact
As far as I know, Sophie was married 3 times. Jake Darna, Frank Toledo, and Jose Rodriguez.

You may be able to link to my tree on - Diana Harrison Martinez Family Tree.

You are correct that Aunt Dolly's name was Elfreida.

Hi Jen,

Anna Jean Padilla May was my mother's first cousin through the Gomes side. So I'd be second cousin to your husband. :)

My information about the Padilla cemetery comes from my mother Ruby Coleman Harrison who grew up on Cayo Costa. She lives with me now and is a great resource for family information. The Padilla family graves weren't moved, just the markers.

Mom says there are other cemeteries on the island but most of them are probably unmarked as well.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Jen

Thank you for the information. I added it to Juanita's bio but omitted any living family members names for privacy reasons. Take care - Cindy

Hi Jen,
This is an unmarked grave. I will post a pic to his memorial showing where he is buried. He is buried to the right of Edwin A. Drews.

RE: Thanks!
You're welcome. I went to photograph some of my families graves and ended up taking 235 pictures. I enjoy doing this.

RE: Thanks

You are so kind! It's a privilege for me to locate and photograph memorials in my local vicinity as a way of contributing to one of the greatest online communities that I know. I love Find A Grave! Such an easy and enjoyable way to help others who are researching their family history.
