Bio and Links
Bio Photo There is nothing more important than family. I believe we should love and appreciate our family while they are still around.

I am married to a wonderful guy from whom I have inherited the most fascinating family history. I spend a lot of time documenting it for the children. My goal is to connect them in Find A Grave for as far back as I can. Hopefully, it will help others find their loved one's resting places.

We became grandparents in July 2011. Our little boy has brought so much joy into our lives, I have to pinch myself in disbelief each time I thank the Almighty for this brand new blessing. As my husband and I must cross the Atlantic Ocean in order to visit with him, and it's not always possible, we have become cyber-grandparents. Skype has become the next best thing to catching a plane.

We are both retired, and a lot of our time is spent pursuing our many interests.

Arturo Marquez Rodriguez

My name is Cherre. Your Arturo Marquez Morales was my mother's third cousin. :-) I've been working on the family history for about 40 years ~ right now I'm trying to connect up a Suarez line that seems to tie in with the Marquez line which is also connected to my Morales line thru Isabel and Manuel Morales Clara (siblings). In any case I just wanted to say thank you for the information you've posted. With any luck I just may find my missing family folks thanks to the many descendants who have taken the time to research their family histories. Again, thank you so much! Take care, Cherre

PS I have memorials on line too. If you'd care to you can find them under the name Morales-Suarez. I think I have everybody linked. :-)

Hi Mildred...
Two things re: Margaret Ahrens

First, you need to date her date of birth (the year)...

Secondly, Bethania Cemetery has no record of her...could she be buried under a different name, is the cemetery correct ?? They have a wonderful staff at Bethania, please call them to confirm she is not there...

Thanks, Georgia S.

RE: Memorial# 5764

You wrote: I just read the Bio on Christopher Columbus. Are you aware that
the people of the Republic of Santo Domingo maintain they have the remains of Cristobal Colón (Spanish for Christopher Columbus)? It is known that Spain, checked the DNA and they matched his brother's (buried in Spain). Since the body was moved several times, is it possible both have part of him?

My response: I believe the biography addresses this question with the following sentences: Following his death, he was initially buried at the cathedral in Valladolid, but his grandson supposedly took his remains for burial in Santo Domingo. The cathedral of Seville also claims to hold his remains. All three locations are in dispute.

No change to the biography is needed, as the locations are still disputed. And yes, it is possible that all three locations have parts of his body.

Best wishes,

Mildred, I wanted to thank you for putting my brothers name in. He is in PR and we are from Massachusetts. Johnny's middle name is spelled "WEBSTER".
I do have a question, how do I get a death certificate for him and the newspaper article or any info on his death. I am on oxygen and I went by one of my biggest fears to see him for his birthday, Nov.1, I went on a cruise ship, scared to death but well worth it to see him before he died.
I again thank you, please if you know what to do I would appreciate it.
