Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been actively researching my family tree since 1999. The primary branches are PODBOY/PODBOJ, ROK, PECARO/PECORARO, BORRIS, and SCHULTZ/SCHUBELTOWSKI. I love locating family members and reconnecting with the past.

Amazing similarities exist between humans of different races, colors and beliefs. The similarities that join us far outweigh the differences that separate us. There is unity within our diversity.

My objectives on Findagrave are to link family members, add obits or biographies, provide grave or crypt locations and -- with the assistance of countless volunteers (my angels!) -- include photos of final resting places. I strive for quality, not quantity.

I also strive to visit each memorial I create (plus others that relate to them in some way) on birth and death dates to commemorate the event. It is my honor and privilege to do so.

If you find any errors or have additional information (dates or places, etc.), please let me know. And if you have photos of any of the people remembered on these pages, feel free to upload them.

Gary Hitchen - St. Joseph's Cemetery
In your request for photos for the Capras at St. Joseph's, you had asked to look for certain surnames adjacent to them. I wanted to let you know that next to the Capras was a Gary R. Hitchen. I created a memorial for him and uploaded the photo.

st. adalbert cemetery
Hi, you're interested in few different last names at St. Adalbert cemetery. I got pictures of the lists for each last name, so you can look through them and see if anyone else from family if buried there. Easiest would be to email pictures, let me know where I should email them. Best JMac

Did Charles have a twin brother named Leo? There is a Leo J Murphy buried next to Charles.

RE: Hiegels in Alta Mesa Memorial Park
Glad I could help! I'm always happy when I can assist in converting an "unknown" memorial to a final resting place.

All my best,

Mildred Harpst (Knight)
Hi Patti,

I have been doing some research on Mildred Harpst. She was born to Minnie and William Harpst in 1903 in Chicago and married my husbands grandfather (Richard Knight) in 1924. They had three boys, Richard, William and John (Jack). She is not on the 1930 census but Richard Knight is with his three boys and his aunt. The story is that she disappeared somewhere between 1928-1929, shortly after her third son was born.

I noticed that you posted on her mother's obituary. Do you know anything about this family?

Thanks so much for ANY help.

St Adalbert Cemetery-Kogut gravesites
Hi Patti-I filled your request for Katherine (Katarzyna) Kogut. She is buried next to Franciszek Kogut (1892-1965). I did take a picture of his headstone so if you create a memorial page let me know and I'll post the picture...Mary

Hi Patti,

I got the photos of the Paglia's which you requested. I'm sorry, but I didn't read your note attached to the requests until I returned from the cemetery.

Directly adjacent to the Paglia's were markers for Vespers. I'll be happy to return to get those photos and any others you wish. If you want, I can search for those names in the cemeteries database. Do you have specific names for me to search (given name and surname)? You can email me at

Best wishes,
Jim Bellert

Hi Patti, They now belong to you. Thrilled that you asked for the transfers. They should all be with family. Take care. Kind regards. Julie
