Bio and Links
Bio Photo Howdy neighbors, my name is "J.R." Richardson. In my younger years I was always too busy having fun and working to pay attention to, or ask questions about my ancestors. Now in my older years, after it's too late to ask those questions, I find myself desperately wanting to know more about my past ancestry. And also to pass on this information to my Kids,GrandKids and Great GrandKids,so they will not have to wonder who their ancestors were,how they lived and where they came from .

I live in the "Entertainment Capitol" : LAS VEGAS,Nevada. I enjoy Genealogy which is what led me to this site. Actually,one day while doing some research on my Uncle Marvin (My Father's Oldest Brother)on an ancestry site,there was his name,as a link,at the bottom of the page,so I clicked on it,it went to Google and his name was there as one of the listings that said,"Find A Grave.com" with it,so I clicked on it and the rest is history. I think this is a great place to honor and remember our loved ones. And to share geneaology information.

***********************

Genealogy is my Past time
I shall not stray
It maketh me to lie down
And examine half-buried tombstones
It leadeth me into still courthouses
It restoreth my Ancestral Knowledge
It leadeth me into the Paths of Census Records
And ships Passenger lists for my names sake
Yes, though I wade through the Shadows of Research Libraries
and Microfilm Readers
I shall fear no Discouragement
For a Strong urge is with me
The curiosity and Motivation
They comfort me
It demandeth preparation of Storage Space
For the Acquisition of Countless Documents
It annointeth my Head with burning Midnight Oil
My family Group sheet runneth over
Surely birth, marriage and death dates
Shall follow me all the Days of my Life
And I shall dwell in the House of a
Family History Seeker Forever.

I wish to express my gratitude to all those very kind and genealogy conscious people who add the links and make the changes I have suggested.

Maiden names for the women is especially important and will aid all future researchers. Family names for the women often get lost when they marry. Listing 1st and 2nd husbands also is very important.

My goal is to link all family members together: parents, spouses and children. This will enable any and all researchers to find family members and complete their research for all generations. Future generations will then be able to connect with their past.

Due to many conflicts of interest from family members, we will no longer accept information from a F.A.G. VISITOR.

If I do not have a photo posted yet or a correction needs to be made, please go to the Memorial page and Click on the Edit Button at the top of the page and then click on the Suggest A Correction leave me a message. Thanks,J R

A funny thing happened on the way to the Forum. I stopped at a cemetery and my life has never been the same. Someone, long ago, predicted my fascination about burial plots. It seems on the day I was born, my parents looked gravely at me. The doctor picked me up by the heels and slapped my mother and made her cry. Life started out not quite right! Thus I went to cemeteries and became a grave whisperer.

Kay Marshall
Garden of Devotion, Palm Desert Memorial Cemetery
Hello, J.R.
My name is Kay Marshall. I see we are both actively working in the Garden of Devotion section of the Palm Desert Memorial Cemetery in North Las Vegas.
I have 1000+ photos ready to post for this section but hope to avoid duplicating your fine efforts there. Thanks for getting so many of these forgotten people onto Findagrave! If you have photos for the memorials you have created, I can refrain from posting mine for your memorials. There will still be some overlap but this would help some. I have already posted a few but only if they pertain to edits I have sent to you. Thanks for responding to those so promptly.
My visit to this cemetery is a one shot deal-one day to kill in Las Vegas. There won't be more after this batch as far as I know. FYI, I did not photograph anything on the mausoleum part that runs east and west and faces south, the part without an interior courtyard. The light conditions were too bright for my point-and-shoot camera to cope with that time of day.
Otherwise, I think I covered Garden of Devotion fairly well.
Thanks for your work in this cemetery and let me know if you don't want me to post my photos for your memorials.
Best regards, Kay Marshall
