Bio Photo Hello, my name's Zina. Thank you for stopping by.

If you have time, please visit the featured memorial for May 2017...

Sujeong Kim, age 16

I am always willing to transfer memorials to family and friends; please don't hesitate to ask if you see I've created a memorial of one of your loved ones.

Have a wonderful day.

Jan. 16, 2017 - I lost my sweet kitty Harold today. My heart is shattered.


On April 16, 2014, the ferry Sewol, en route from Incheon to Jeju Island in South Korea, capsized. Most of the passengers were high school sophomores on a field trip. As the ship sank, the children were ordered to stay in their cabins, and most of the kids obeyed that order. A small number of people on deck were rescued, but the people inside the ship were abandoned by most of the crew and coast guard. The ship took three hours to sink. During that time, the kids recorded videos, took pictures and called their families before they all eventually drowned or died of hypothermia. In the end, 250 kids were killed. All of the children, plus a few teachers, other passengers and crew, are highlighted here. I also have the kids and teachers listed by classroom number on the right. I ask that you please see the faces of these children. Read their stories. Maybe pick a child you feel compelled to pray for, keep their family in your thoughts. This was a horrible, devastating event that should never have happened, and entire communities are still reeling from this loss. Please, remember the victims of the Sewol Ferry Sinking. Remember April 16, 2014.


May Sewol birthdays:

- Jongyoung Hong (5th)
- Kyeongmin Lee (7th)
- Jaeneung Seo (8th)
- Hyeonjin Im (9th)
- Soonyoung Hong (12th)
- Haein Go, Seho Jae (14th)
- Woojae Go (16th)
- Juhee Kim, Yeongsu Jeon (23rd)
- Seokjoon Lee (24th)
- Hyewon Yu (26th)
- Hyeonju Choi (31st)


The Sewol Ferry was raised from the bottom of the ocean on March 22, 2017. The ship has been moved to a port, and search crews are currently working to recover the five missing victims. Please pray that they are successful, and the missing can go home to their families for burial.

The Five Missing Sewol Victims

Update - May 23, 2017: Remains found in the ship on May 22nd have been tentatively identified as Lee Yeongsuk through her clothing and ID card. She will be cremated and returned to her family following a DNA confirmation.


Please help me honor these cherished, beloved, beautiful lives.

♥︎ Grover Ramsey ♥︎ - a precious, handsome young man, forever cherished by his loving family

☀︎ Sangjun Ji ☀︎ - an intelligent, philosophical teenaged boy, lost in the Sewol Ferry sinking of Apr. 16, 2014

☆ Francis Moyemont ☆ - a beautiful little angel who passed away nearly 100 years ago - very much in need of flowers and love!

RE: Thank you!
I'm so glad they identified Go Changseok. I hope
his family doesn't have to wait long. I also hope that they can identify all the missing so that they can go home to their families.

The Brazil memorial is basically impossible to make because they don't have the city listed. You found the burial record of one and FG wouldn't let me add it because there is no city. And I've already done a lot of research for the project.
I have at least one photo for each of the 242 victims. I wish FG would add cities by request.

Thanks for the Sewol update and for all your help. It's very much appreciated.

RE: Thank you!
Thank you for the info on the people they've found. I'm glad at least Jo Eunhwa's finally come home to her family. Hopefully they find all of the missing.

I've never gotten to talk to anyone else really affected by the Sewol tragedy. My friend in Australia was affected too--we used to talk about it. It also happened at just the right point in my life to resonate, as well. So did MH17.

Not sure how to handle the guy who has the duplicate family members I've added. He's got the tombstone pictures, but only the dates that were on the stones. I wonder if he just photographed the cemetery and put it all on here, like someone did with St. Mary's down the street here.

I've kind of stalled on my Brazil nightclub fire victims. The city of Santa Maria is not listed, so the closest I can get is province. Which is bugging me b/c Santa Maria is a pretty big city. Also actually finding out birthdays and burial locations is really difficult. I do have pictures of them all that I can use. As far as I can see there's no way to get FG to add a city by request.

Thank you for the info and I hope you have a great day!

RE: Thank you!
The big problem with the Brazilian memorials is that FG doesn't list Santa Maria as a city. I hope I can use the info you found, but as close as I can get is Rio Grande del Sol. As for MH370, of course there are no burial records.

I saw an interview with Heo Dawoon's father a long time ago. It stuck with me, tho it was Huh. At one time I wanted to do a memorial for the Sewol victims but I couldn't find enough info. Now that I can see how their names are really spelled... that helps. And I've been researching it all this time. So finding your memorial was very poignant. The pronunciation guide you mentioned could be helpful. I looked up Korean pronunciation at one point.

I love the pictures of Seongho and Jihyun.

In all this time I haven't had anyone to talk to about it all, tho I had 2 hermit crabs back then named Ansan and Danwon.

I watch NHK (a national Hong Kong news show) and they mention the Sewol sometimes. It'a always strange to see it on tv because I've only read about it before.

I'm so glad they've found some remains for the remaining families. Maybe then they'll at least have closure. I've seen all the love that the families put into the grave memorials, as you've shown so many graves.

Thank you for the emails--especially the photos. Most of the family are on my mom's side and I've never met many of them. They were her aunts and uncles.


the MH370 people and the Brazil fire people is that I don't have the burial info. I think it's time the MH370 people get memorials... as you said, they're presumed dead--but there really is no burial info on them, obviously. Or death date, tho I figure it was March 8. (I'm just going to say 2014 for the date). Since they've called off the search for the plane I figure we'll just never know. I collected info and pictures back then, but I have to update my researcha.

RE: Thank you!
I love the new pictures of Seongho and Jihyun. You can see how much they were loved. It was Heo Dayoon who led me to your page. Originally in all the articles I read her last name was given as Huh, but one day I found the alternate spelling. I pray that the remains they found come home to her family so they may have closure. Such wonderful news that they found the almost complete set of remains. Please keep me up to date on the DNA tests because I don't have the resources you have.

Thank you for the gifts to my hermit crabs. I don't have any children so they kind of are my children. I was so happy to see they had flowers. They each had their own personalities. Most people don't believe crabs can have personalities but they do.

The MH 370 people can't still be alive somewhere. It's been too long, and as you say, debris has been found of the plane. I have to find birthdays for a lot of them, so my memorials are fragmentary as it is now. I'm also working on the 2013 Kiss nightclub fire--do you know any way to find the birthdays?It was in Brazil.

I loved the pictuers of Seongho and Jihyun. They are my adopted FG kids now. You've done such wonderful work with all your memorials.
I still haven't finished going thru all of them.

RE: Thank you!
The story of Jihyun and the dream is amazing. It must be so difficult to see the videos like the one Seongho was in. I'm happy to sponsor them because it's a way to help them, even just in a small way. Seongho reminds me of myself at that age.

Now that they've found remains maybe some of the families can find closure. One thing I've seen is how important the graves are, so decorated with love and memories. It would be awful to not have a burial site for the loved ones of the 9 families remaining.

I still need to do the bios for MH370. I don't know if it will ever be public. But I'm doing it anyway. A few pieces of the plane have been found but the passengers and crew are still considered missing, rather than deceased. So I'm not sure I could make the virtual cemetery public...

It would be so wonderful to have the records on my family members from Ancestry. So thanks so much for any info you can find. I used to have it but I can't afford it. I loved doing the research too.
