Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please send me any corrections or additions, and they will be added promptly. *** UPDATE June 2015: I am currently in East Africa for the next two years and will not be able to update as quickly as I normally would. I ask for patience, but corrections and additions will still take place as I am able.***

Any photos of graves that I have taken may be used by anybody as they see fit. As I see it, that is the purpose of this website. However, please do not upload them onto a Find-A-Grave memorial or take them from a similar website, like BillionGraves, as I also upload photos there and it violates this website's terms. If you would like a photo that I have taken placed onto a memorial, please let me know.

Rudeness will not be responded to. Please be civil in your tone and words.

In Messages, please include the MEMORIAL NUMBER when referencing a specific person. It makes it easier to find them.

If you would like a memorial transferred to you, please ask. I will happily transfer any memorial, unless the memorial is of a relative of mine or a member of the Maryknoll Missionary Community.

If you have higher quality photos than the ones I posted, please feel free to post them, then let me know, and I will remove mine.

HOW TO (on Find-A-Grave):

Create Bold Print:
When you are editing your profile, use < b and then > with no space, at the beginning of the word or phrase. When you want to end the bold print, use < / b > with no space between any of the characters. Also leave no space between the markers and the opening and closing word.


Create Italics: Same as with bold print, only include an "i" in the place of "b".


Create Bold and Italic Words: Simply put the two symbols listed above back to back in the front and at the end.


How To Link One Memorial To Another:
In the Biography, type < a href="">Name < / a >

Remove the space before the first "a" and all the spaces after "Name" in the example above, and where the "X"s are, replace with the memorial number. Where "Name" is, put the name or phrase you want to appear as the link. For example, This is me (The link goes nowhere).

I really appreciate the transfers. I had a computer problem during my request and I didn't finish it but you must have received it. How thoughtful of you. You really are a Time Traveler aren't you? Donna Jorgensen Lung (great granddaughter of the Jorgensens)

FAG memorial #138487142
Hello traveler, I love your photos - they are very good.

I believe that this memorial reflects a person we just identified as part of our family through looking at probate records. I think Barnett, Barney, Lewinsky was the eldest son of Shepsil ( #138544677) and Sarah Lewinsky who immigrated to New York in 1786 without their eldest sons who must have come a couple of years earlier. I have not generated a link because I want to be sure, first. Second son was my own g-grandfather, Marks Lewinsky also buried at Oak Woods. Unfortunately there may not be a death cert that early-on in Chicago.Or, an obit.too early probably. But will check soon.

Would it be possible to send me photos off-line of Find A Grave of both Barnett's grave (so I can find a language reader to interpret the inscription) and of Shepsil/Sarah's stone (your photos are better than mine despite two visits to Oak woods from Denver). Also photos sent through a gmail link will be sharper than on Find A Grave.
Thank you ever so much....

RE: Theo Vandervest # 101816315
I don't want to disconnect them. When I went to add Theo's parents it would not let me send the edit request without first taking out the memorial number for Olga as she is already added on his page.
Thank you for your changes. I am the great granddaughter to Walter Richard Vandervest, Theodore (Theo) was his brother.

RE: Otto Schilling request
nope this is not our Otto Schilling. Our relative died in Florida and his wife's name was Grace.

Otto Schilling request
My 1st cousin gave me the info on Otto Schilling. I am checking with the family to see if Benjamin Augusta and Joan are related to him. If so, I will connect them.
