Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in my family tree when I was a teenager which I am so glad about as I was able to ask my Grandmothers questions. One Grandma from Virginia and one from New York.
I have also asked several members of my family about our tree and then started genealogy research.
Which I have now been doing for many years for our family.
Also, I have for some years now been doing genealogy research for other people. So if you need Virginia genealogy records or obits just let me know via my email address.
I also have several genealogy websites.
I like to visit cemeteries of course to visit my family who have passed but also when I can to post photographs of tombstones and memorials on this great site to help other people.

Lawrence Joseph Albert in Holy Cross, Richmond, VA
Hi! I was looking up some Albert family members and the death certificates say they are buried in Holy Cross but there do not seem to be any records of them here. I did notice this one you had for a Lawrence Joseph Albert who was indeed a son of William Charles Albert and Elnora Browning, but there is a problem with the dates. Their son was born on 9 Mar 1919 and died on 7 Jan 1942 of acute leukemia at the age of 22, and was married to Evelyn Cottrell. The 1941-2016 dates might be his son since they share the very same name.

The headstone for John B. Albert may be William's father although his records indicate his mother's name to be Margaret A. Mengle rather than the unusual first name listed on the stone. William and Elnora's sons John Bernard Albert (never married, died in Eastern State Hospital in Williamsburg, VA)and Frank Ignatius Albert(divorced, died in a house fire at his home in Goochland Co. VA)are also supposed to be buried in Holy Cross along with their parents. The only daughter, Elnora Albert married a Raymond Henley and is buried out in Goochland with her husband.

I am not sure if they are related to you personally, and they are only very distant relations on my family tree. It was more to have a complete record than anything else that put me on this trail! Hopefully, this information might be of use to someone else too!

As a largely Catholic cemetery, I was slightly surprised to see that Frank Albert was buried there as he had been divorced. William evidently owned a grocery store in Richmond--William C. Albert Groceries--in Richmond sometime in the 1930s-1940s as John's WWII registration indicated that was where he was working. When Lawrence died he had been working down in the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock as a welder, but passed away here in Richmond--I am not sure if his wife and children had been with him in Norfolk or had remained here while he worked there.

I hope this helps someone! Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions!

Hi Beth, exactly, we didn't have much time. I had to go in and out quickly because that dogs at home, and my buddy had to get back home also. Also, we were waiting on Weather to see if it would end up being nice or not.
