Bio and Links
Bio Photo Common sense and courtesy 'tips the scale' that a person should ask permission to reuse another person's work and you should include a credit by-line if that work is not YOUR original creation! Thank you Robertt John Chudek for letting me use this from your Bio.

I am happy to transfer people not related but please do not ask me to transfer everyone in a cemetery because you want control or everyone who is related to you. Please state relationship.

I only add information when you send it through the edit in the upper right hand corner of the memorial.
Please include your # if you want a transfer!
Thank you.

A love for family history started when my 6th grade teacher asked us to make a family tree.
I talked to my grandparents and wrote letters.
Then one of my Great Aunt's decided to do a book on her side of the family. This ended up in 4 books.
An Aunt and I decided to go visit cemetery's and look into old records. It has been fun to get more pieces of the puzzle.

Pictures are so much more fun than just names. Thank you to those of you who have added pictures and stories.

Several years ago when my younger sister than about age 10 went with me to the old Tinkham cemetery in Indiana and she said,"Doesn't anyone love these people anymore." No one they knew was living, we were their closest relatives.

Thank you to all of you who have worked so hard and gathered so much information. Thank you for the many corrections and additions.

Thank you to the many wonderful volunteers. There will always be the few where everything is "all about me" .

Pictures are all copyrighted and are from the family collection. You may use them but please list source.

RE: Mary Elizabeth Drake Deal
I have William S drake as Father and Maria as mother..I cannot be 100 percent positive but i found a brother of hers living in the household with her and my great grampa in the 1930 census. Tracing back is how i found her parents with both her and her brothers name combined..

RE: Thank you
Hi, Thank you for your nice note. You have the two Strassburgs listed in the wrong cemetery. Their memorials should be moved to EAST LAWN MEMORIAL PARK 4300 Folsom Blvd. Sacramento CA, Sacramento County
They are in the El Dorado Mausoleum

Dennis was cremated and placed in EAST LAWN ELK GROVE MEMORIAL PARK. I did locate his grave and placed the photo on his memorial. I was able to obtain the obituary for both Harvey and Myra and I will be glad to send them to you. Please send me a mailing address to DSPPGP@AOL.COM. Please do this for security purposes.

I could not find Edward Strassburg.

Photo request for Marjorie Violet Foth Krisher
There is a Highland Memorial Park in Appleton and that appears to be where Marjorie is buried.

Please delete the last memorial as that is in the wrong cemetery (cemeteries have the same name but are located in different cities).

Thank you!

RE: Oops
Trust me I didn't do this, intentially. Some one pointed out a simular glitch a couple of weeks ago and I haven't been able change it. I think the program hicupped. I hoped I can easily correct this one.

Please transfer the Gilstad family members from WI to me as this is my direct family line. My mother was Lilyan Gilstad Elliott. I have been working on my family genealogy since 1999. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at Thank you.
