Currently I am working in the Mt. View Cemetery (Oregon City) in the County Park #1 section (paupers). It has been neglected for many many years. I have unearthed and photographed some 62 headstones and marked their rows. These folks deserve to have their graves maintained as much as anyone else in the cemetery.

I am a 6 generation Oregonian and have been doing my family genealogy since the early 70's. Back then it took months to find out one fact, today with the computer that information can be found in the blink of an eye.
Only now it seems more confusing the first thing I learned back then was to document all my information and make sure the facts were correct. Now a day's people just put anything on the internet only guessing or by family stories, making things more confusing. I am now trying to set apart family fact from fiction to keep the information correct for future generations to come.
I love doing genealogy it's a real life a good book you can't put down the only thing is I will probably never know the ending or the beginning.

My memorials are family and a work in progress, adding to each one as I find family material and photos. I have traveled to Washington, California, Ohio and Pennsylvania doing my family research in cemeteries and historical societies. If you are family I would love to hear from you.

There is nothing worse than someone stealing someone's work, not giving credit to the original poster then pretending it is their work. Please don't be one of those people, and please don't use my photos or documents without asking first.

Family names:

I do photo requests and take photos while I am in the cemetery. I like to take more than one photo of the headstone, to give you the feeling of being there and seeing the surrounding area. If you would like me to remove any of my photos just ask.

One more thing.. if I find an error on any memorial I will ask for the mistake to be corrected. If it is a duplicate that needs to be removed or the addition of the plot location. I would like all memorials to be the best they can be, and if the original creator has a thousand or more and is to selfish to give them up and can't maintain them or the one memorial that needs to be corrected, I would like to help.

RE: Marjorie/George Marmie
You are very welcome. It is rewarding to be able to connect the memorials with family or friends.

Hi Penny! What I sent is quite correct. I actually remember my great-uncle Harold quite well :) Sadly great-grandfather Ross died 9 years before I was born, but I knew my great-grandmother May as well. I was lucky enough to know 3 great-grandmothers, as well as several great-aunts and uncles.

I truly appreciate the work you're doing :) I wish I could myself, but I now live in Australia with my Aussie husband!

Thanks again!

RE: Cemetery Photos
I have resaved the original photo in PhotoShop in the proper orientation, and have sent the new one to Find A Grave. The new photo, once accepted by the administration, should display correctly on Apple devices. Thanks for letting me know of the problem.

I received your request for a transfer for Bonnie. Do you have other info to post on the page? Because if you don't I can probably find an obit and get the cemetery info before transferring her to you. I live in Berryton, just south of Topeka, and I'm a volunteer at the Kansas State Historical Society's library and archives.
After I make additions to the pages in Mount Hope Cemetery, I copy the pages and take them to the cemetery office, where they are added to their files. I usually make a trip over there every Monday.

If you already have info to add, just let me know and I'll make the transfer.
