Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the history, the architecture, the beauty, and mostly the serenity of a cemetery, especially Hollywood Forever where I've been visiting for 32 years. I enjoy fulfilling photo requests at this cemetery the most. Currently Hollywood Forever has over 89,000 graves; their email address is

I'm retired due to a disability and spend much of my time at Hollywood Forever. I've had a lot of enjoyment photographing graves and folks seem to like my photos. It makes me feel useful! I claim many photo requests as I check the site several times a day. If you'd like to fulfill a particular request that I've claimed, just send me a public message and I'd be happy to unclaim it.

I am a photographer, not a genealogist.

I've been seeing more and more requests for photos without any grave location information. Trust me, cemetery offices are much more likely to cheerfully provide family members with grave locations than photo volunteers, especially those of us they see often. Some cemeteries won't provide grave locations to photo volunteers.

Please allow any cemetery enough time to respond to a location request. Realistically, finding grave locations is not a priority in the day to day operation of an active cemetery. And remember, it always helps to be nice!

I apologize Jim for the request, I did not see that until you pointed it out.

Mr. Davis,
Thank you so very much for taking the time and effort to take pictures of Richard and Marie's final rest place. Marie is my husband's great grandmother, who was unknown to us until a few years ago.

RE: Sprenkles at HF
Thank you for the heads up and the welcome. I haven't been able to get there with all of the rain that we have been having. I will check if they are still available once every thing clears up.

RE Louis Manchel
HI Jim! I noticed that back on Jan 12th you had fulfilled one of my photo requests for my great grandfather Louis Manchel at Hollywood Forever Cemetery but I don't see the photo on his page. I was just wondering if maybe there was a glitch and it's just not showing up or if you just hadn't yet gotten out to the cemetery yet (in which case don't worry! I just appreciate it very much!) Just thought I would shoot you a quick message just to ask. Thank you again for your effort!!
