RE: Zabloudil transfers
I don't your email address so I sent them to Linda Currie with an admission that I no longer have the source citations (probably from a public domain source). Cheers.

Thank you for the reply--I actually had seen the shortened forms of the obits for Helen
I appreciate your follow-up--with the Greater Omaha Genealogical Society, I did see the Catholic Voice and the OWH reference (though I couldn't see the actual obits). Many times obits will indeed say the birth/death places, and that is why I am willing to source and use obits in the bios. But I have also seen obits that mention that so and so died while visiting relatives in another state, and the body was shipped back to Omaha or Blair for burial. The Genealogical Society has abbreviated obits: maybe age, certainly date of publication, maybe spouse, and does not ever have place of birth or place of death. I do not have direct access to complete obits for Omaha, unless they happen to have some connection to Washington County, and unless somebody in Washington County has actually transcribed them. As a volunteer, I don't have $ for death certificates or birth certificates. If you ever do have obits, I am happy to use them in the bio. I did accept parts of the Edits, and credited you--thank you again!

Helen Richards Edits
I really appreciate the Edits for Helen, and see from the obituaries for her parents that she is their daughter. However, how do you know where she was born and where she died? I look forward to hearing from you!

One Foot In The Grave
Elizabeth "Lizzie" Littlefield Haller

I wish I could still go cemetery crawling but I'm not physically able any more. Yes, requesting a photo (or just a "reading" alternately if it doesn't show anything on a photo) would be worth a try.

This may have been a project that John Melton never got back to before he died. I and several other people who worked with him inherited some 25,000 memorials when he passed away a few years ago.

In the meantime, I have the philosophy that I'd rather do something in good faith and be wrong than do nothing and have a essentially worthless memorial. I propose that we fill in the information that we have for her and if someone can prove it's wrong we can always change it.

I have submitted pictures for Louie and Ernestine. The last name is different, but their previous surname is in brackets on their grave marker. I have added a memorial page for Ernestine (#146658537).

RE: Joesph MCarville
I will look for all the McCarvilles while I am there. I did these 7 years ago and was new at what I was doing so there is a possibility I missed some. Again, I will try to get there in the very near future, it is only about 15 miles away.

I changed the dates on the headstone. Please check and make sure they are correct. Not sure why those other dates were put on. I will try to get to the cemetery in the near future and look at those names and dates again I may be able to take better pictures if I spray them with a light mist of water to make them show up better.

Added by Shirley (Bruhn) Martys on May 18, 2015 9:28 AM

I added the info including the 2 children dying in 1949. But that would make her about 79 years old or so having children.

RE: Klimper request
The cemetery is well laid-out and it appears that people have worked diligently to catalog all interments. This is my first time to Aurora, so I was glad to see that with a little orienting myself I was able to find the families in question. It appears that the cemetery organizers tried to encourage family to bury family in the same area. Since there appears to be no Lucy Klimper, I don't think she is buried there. The other option is, like her husband, she is in an unmarked grave that was not recorded. I would have enjoyed helping you document the dates of her birth and death with a gravestone, but it does not appear that it will be.

I noticed that there are 2 memorials Elma sickels jensen's first husband, and also 2 duplicate memorials for her second husband, so I didn't add either spouse to Elma's memorial. I would like your input on what to do in this situation.

Dale Lloyd Sickels
Hi Kathy, I finally got some info from my wife's parents about Dale's internment. They said he is buried in East Lawn Cemetery in Pima Co. Arizona. I found there are 13 cemeteries in Pima Co., and an "East Lawn Palms Cemetery" is one of them. I created a memorial for Dale and requested a photo.

RE: Leo Matthew Kisicki
No that is ok. I am just trying to verify all the information I find and also to locate living relatives. I am planning a trip back to Wyoming and Nebraska to visit the cemeteries and do some hands on research in the next year or so. Thank you so much for all you do.

RE: Leo Matthew Kisicki
Hi Kathy, Thank you for your reply. I may take you up on your offer at some point. I am planning to make a trip back to Wyoming and Nebraska in the next couple of years so I can do some more hands on research. The reason I contacted you was that you are listed on Leo's memorial page as contributing some info regarding his 2 marriages . Just trying to figure out where this info come from.

Thank you!!!

Leo Matthew Kisicki
Good Morning Kathy, I am researching the Kisicki Family. You are noted as a contributor of some information on the memorial for Leo Matthew Kisicki. I am wondering if you are a relative and I am interested in any information you may have regarding the Kisicki. I see what appears to be two different Kisicki families in Saint John's Cemetery. I am not sure if they are related at this point in my research. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated. I am also interested in locating another Find A Grave member. This member is noted for contributing information for Anastazia Wesierski Kisicki, also buried in Saint John's. That member number is 46830236. If you might by chance know who this person is I would greatly appreciate it if you could get me in touch with them. I can also be reached by email at
Thank you so much for your time!!!
