The family prefers "Germany" to "Poland" as the family spoke German. Unfortunately Prussia is not an option - Find A Grave has only relatively current place names and the reference is to the city formerly known as Neustettin, not the Kreis.

You referenced Wikipedia to find the place names. I'd like to recommend to you for Pommern place name lookups. He doesn't do everything, but seems to have expanded somewhat beyond the old Pommern & we've found the site to be an excellent reference.

A Kreis Neustettin map is at Gunthard Stubbs has mapped out the church areas - I think after the Hinz brothers left, as some of the churches were not built until the time when Albert's daughters were emigrating but it's very helpful for determining which films might be helpful for research.

Heather Burkhart
RE: Larry James Burkhart
Hi Kathie! Thank you for replying to my message I was happy to hear about my 3x great grandfather I was so confused on who was related to who i back tracked on my grandfather Robert Marshall to see who his parents were and found Raymond! I also went down to Albany to the museum and they had alot of information,and newspaper clippings and a book I bought called Gem of the Willamette Valley its the history of Albany and it has some neat info on the Burkharts. I don't really know alot about the family either my parents Larry and Kelly were only married 9 months April to Dec 1978 it wasn't until after my dad died that my mom found out she was pregnant with me I was born the following year in August. My mom never knew a whole lot about the Burkharts but has been helpful in what she does know. Betty my grandmother died when I was 9 I never got to meet her there were some family issues that took place after my dad had passed and her and my mom lost contact after i was 6months old she had seen me twice and I dont remember her. I grew up in the Salem area been married and divorced I have 4 beautiful children 1 girl and 3 boys, Hannah is 18,Cody 17,Jordan 15 and Tyler just turned 1! Im so excited that I get to share my family history with them. Thanks again Kathie I hope we can stay in touch.

RE: Your aunt and uncle
Kathie, Thank you so much for your insightful and kind reply. After reading your thoughts, I realized that I should add my own military service to my biography, which I just did. I think serving our country is becoming more and more important as the years go by. I often take it for granted that most people are veterans or know one and, unfortunately, that is no longer the rule. Thanks for the reminder and the value you place on those who have served. - Best wishes! Christian

Dear Kathie.... thank you so much for sponsoring the memorials of Dale and Lucy Gagan. Both were very dear aunt and uncle and I miss them very much to this day. They always had a patriotic display in their home and were loved by so many. God bless you! You were very kind! Thanks again! - Christian

Hi Kathie,
Thanks for the help on Stutzman ancestors. I have accepted your edits and added the news clippings as requested. Good catches all. The unfortunate George was my great grandmother's first husband.

I have the census you mention as I have been working on the family history puzzle for 19 years. Yikes! All the late nights. :)

You might be interested in "" a free global family tree. I just finished a sourceathon where we (globally) sourced over 22,000 people in 72 hours. A fun group of genealogists and it was a great exercise in sourcing citations.

Happy Family History Month!

Hi Kathie--sorry for the delay, have been trying to help an elderly friend in the hospital, now in rehab...

I've looked but can't find the birth info for John Blue... is there a source you can point me to? My sources have him born in NJ. Also, what's the source of his middle initial "M"?

Many thanks, Bobbi

Error on Ole O Sworkmo
I see in your biography that you say you are a descendant of one of his daughters. He is my grandfather and I know he had only two daughters; Ida Agnes, my mother and Bertha Gladys who had no children. there was one other daughter that was Olina's when she married him. She was Johanna and had a serious illness when she was about 12. She was blind until her death about the age of 20. Otherwise the only other child he had ws Odine Christopher. He also had no natural children but did have 4 stepchildren. If you want to know more, contact me at

RE: Charles Millering Angel Day
Hello Kathy, Thank you for the lovely sentiment on Chucks memorial page. It has been almost 6 years since I quit those hollow tubes! And about 4 years since the doctor cut that little bit of cancer out of my chest. I'm doing great. I still have to work 4 nights a week, it can sure take it's toll on the physical well being. It's Chucks birthday today not his Angel day but I'm sure Chuck doesn't mind.I saw his son on the bus awhile back and his daughter sent me some photos. I hope you are doing okay do you still have shadow cat? I have 2 beautiful grandsons which I can visit and buy toys for. Trevor is 2 1/2 & Tegan is 1 1/2. Take care and stay strong. Love from Jeannie.

RE: Sunset View Cemetery
Hi Kathie, Thanks for your kind words. The headstones that were removed are now in SF Bay.

I came across the SF death index before 1905 and thought I'd add some names to the Sunset Cemetery. It hasn't been much, so far, but I will be doing a little at a time.

The dead do need to be remembered.

I'm of Russian descent and I have been following the various lines in Los Angeles and San Francisco. I found many death certs on Family Search and many are young children. Since they died between census years, their name is not mentioned anywhere. So that is one of my many quests is to link these children to family. Sadly, some of the certificates do not mention a parent; however, sometimes I can link the address to another child who died and the child is linked up. I can't find them all, but I've made a dent.

So sad that the dead are forgotten and covered over. Family members can't even pay their respects. I say shame on those companies who have no feelings or guilt.

That's my soapbox message.

Marysville, CA

RE: Elie Wiesel memorial

Dear Kathie,

Thank you for the kind words regarding our tribute for the incomparable Elie Wiesel; we were humbled in attempting to define his life within given parameters. As the descendants of immigrant Holocaust survivors, we believe this world mourns the loss of a profound voice whose legacy is our conscience.

Best regards and "shalom aleichem".
