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 an amateur photographer, not a genealogist, so please don't lecture me about my lack of commitment to your hobby. You do your thing and I will do mine and it will be a happy happy sunshine world!

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!

RE: DeLaney photo
I don't know. You helped me eliminate the possibility that this was RR DeLane. Thanks

Hey I thought for sure you would claim my request in Beth Olam Maus. The photo I posted is horrible.

RE: Re: Minnie Benedict
Thanks Jim! That's great that you've been able to make progress on your genealogy - it definitely gets challenging when they move around a lot :) I greatly appreciate again you taking the gravestone photo at Hollywood Forever!
