Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please read before sending corrections:

I'd very much prefer to transfer a memorial to someone who is researching the person listed than make corrections. Even if you are only distantly related or not related at all. If you know more, you are a better person to manage it than I am. (I do keep management of memorials for my own relatives rather than transfer those to well-meaning non-family members.)

Per Find a Grave guidelines, I do not add obituaries to biographies.

Please use the Suggest any other correction or addition link on the Edit tab of a memorial to request transfer of that memorial.

That means you can use them without asking me so long as you credit me, you don't sell them, and if you make something based off my photos, you must also let people use *that* on these terms. If you do not include attribution when you use or repost my photos, I will send a take-down notice. I don't ask for much. Please just include it so I don't have to be a bad guy.

All my photos are also available on Flickr in higher resolution, as Find a Grave limits photo sizes.

Mary and Andrew Kryzsko
Hi Philip -

Edit for them being parents of Anton Andrew Kryzsko (1884-1947) you sent to me.

The dates as shown certainly don't add up as their being the parent of Albion - he was born before them according to the memorials. It looks as if Mary was born in 1886 (according to the photo of her marker) instead of 1899.

I did not request an edit for Mary but someone did for Albion.

I will approve the edit for them as being the parents of Anton Kryzsko but if Mary was really born in 1899 she was just 15 when Andrew was born. Not impossible but not probable.

Kind of a mess! :)

Best wishes,
High Plains :)

RE: Ray Thomas
I have not seen the actual book, but there is an online version of it available at There are five files for Union Cemetery listed under Hardin Township. I have downloaded and searched all five parts and did not find his name. The paragraph below is my only knowledge of the contents of the book. I have not tried to find out if the cemetery has additional records. The transcription does appear to be fairly complete through 1995 but I found a few minor errors. There also were several instances where I wondered if there were unmarked and unrecorded graves because of missing spouses, etc.

If you would like transfers of any of the others I posted, I am happy to do that.

Union Cemetery, Hardin Township, Section 13

Owned and operated by the Ladies Social Gathering, Inc. since 1859. Located in northwest Iowa Falls, 1310 Cedar St. In 1995, the board members walked the cemetery and recorded inscriptions. The board combined those records and the cemetery records and, in July 1998, published a book of the burials within Union Cemetery.

RE: Mount Calvary
Thank You! I sent her a message and then after investigating it I sent Find A Grave a message and neither responded. They didnt seem to be worried about the inaccurate picture or the inacurate listing. So since I know what is going on when I take pictures I guess I shouldnt worry too much about it. There is no Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Sacramento County or in Foothill Farms. It is all one big Cemetery named Calvary Catholic Cemetery and Mausoleum. Thats why when I take pics for a loved one that has one spouse in the false Cemetery I ask them to move it to the correct one then I post the picture so they will both be listed in the correct cemetery. Although the Calvary Catholic Cemetery is not listed in Foothill Farms, they are on Verner Ave which is in Foothill Farms and in Sacramento County. You will find if you look that there are duplicate names listed in both cemeteries and that is probably why there are only 117 listings when there are probably over 7000 in the Cemetery. So anyway when Find A Grave takes down the sign and puts the duplicates in the correct Cemetery it is fine with me. I let them know a year ago.

Hi Philip, Russell is a half-brother and I have added our father and his mother to Find A Grave. I would be happy to take over for you if you want to transfer his site to me.

Thank you for the transfers and the "quote" suggestion. I made the correction.
