Bio and Links
Bio Photo My goal is to help others and photograph cemeteries that I visit. Due to Mother Nature and the elements of time, even stone can erode. Why not preserve what we can for others to share in the future? If I am fulfilling a request, I will try to add memorials for all people I find with the same last name or all that are interred in the same general area - this little detail can be a jackpot to someone's family tree.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to manage your relative's memorial. I am not related to most and would like to see memorials in the hands of family - please use the edit tab on the top of the memorial. I am human so if you find an error on a memorial, please let me know so I can get it corrected. Most of my work is done later in the evening and my eyes can overlook things.

RE: Marcus Traxler edit request

I thought I sent through just the parental links only - the wife was already linked so I didn't need to add her into the edit. She is still linked to Marcus but the parents aren't present. She wasn't removed - I just sent parent's memorial numbers.

RE: Boyer
I am working the northwest section right now - I don't have the map nearby so can't name the section - north gate, straight back and to the left. I have also done about 100 feet (all rows) on the left right inside the north gate - south of the metal building when you first come in. Everything else is free game!

Bonnie Carroll has been also taking some photos in there recently - all the help is greatly appreciated. I am still making original entries from the burial records - am working on the "S's" right now - about 30 pages of entries left and then everyone will have an entry. Feel free to make new entries on those who have names beyond the S's (T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z) - just that much less work for me! If I find more complete dates rather than just year dates, I can always send edits.

Thanks for your offer of taking photos in this cemetery. It has been neglected for too long and there are a lot of people buried there but without their entries on Find A Grave, their families cannot find them.

RE: Boyer

This information IS at the Whitewater Public Library. You have to ask them for the Burial information for Hillside Cemetery. There are maps in the front of the ring binder so that you can figure out which section the photo requests might be in.

I would love for you to take as many photos as you can of Hillside. It is huge and I have started photographing section by section but it is a daunting task. Once I get everyone entered that is buried in that cemetery, it is my intent to get back out there to take photos. It is just easier to add photos to an existing memorial than start from scratch, make the entry and then enter the photo thus my continued entering until I finish all the entries. I am currently in the "R's" so not much further to go.

Take lots of extra photos as you honor the photo requests for this cemetery and plop them onto as many of my memorials as possible!

RE: Hillside Cemetery in Whitewater

Your Boyer family is in Section J-35 R which is in the southwest corner of Hillside Cemetery. The gates are on the east so this would be in the far west, left corner of this cemetery.

RE: Hillside Cemetery in Whitewater - Boyer family

I am going to Whitewater on Tuesday. The public library has a map of where everyone is buried. I can look for you for this family's location. And, I would GLADLY transfer anyone who is your family to you to manage. My only goal is to get everyone a proper burial location into our local cemeteries so that their families can find them. I have no desire to manage thousands of memorials.

If you send me an edit via the edit tab on any memorial you would like to manage, I will make the transfers.

I will get back to you on what section this family is buried in after Tuesday afternoon.

Photo of John Gerencir
I was able to find and photo John's grave, however you list his spouse as Nancy and he is buried with Carol L. Gerencir b.1913 d.1970. I can add the photo but wanted to check with you first. I also found a Richard A. Gerencir 1947-1969, and another couple Marion b.5/30/1918 d.9/10/2010 and her husband Charles P. 8/25/1912-5/6/1987

RE: RE:LaVern James Opelt d. 13 Aug 1978 Grayslake, Lake Co., IL
Lynnie, Yes thank you, It appears no one has added him to Find A Grave yet. I tried for an obit for him via the Grayslake, IL public library and he looked. Did you get what I thought I'd forwarded to you of his findings. ? No obit though. :( . Without knowing where he is buried or if cremated, we cannot link him to his children nor them to Ella. Susie

Hi Lynn: I have been trying to write to you via your email but it keeps coming back saying the email does not exist. Please advise.
