Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been enjoying walking the cemeteries in my area for a few years now. It's peaceful and it turns out to be quite a stress reliever!

The photos I take are for the benefit of others so please feel free to use them for your personal use or at any of the genealogy websites, including I figure the more places they go the more these loved ones will be remembered!

I have deep roots in the Dutch heritage which is very influential in my area. It's been a pleasure to take photos of the Dutch ancestors headstones knowing it has helped those in the "old country" reconnect with their US family branch.

Hi Dutch Girl:
I am working on John Bylsma Jr. died Dec. 6, 1946 son of John B. and "Reka" Henrietta Bronsink Bylsma family. Son John Bylsma Jr. married my mother's cousin Gladys Mildred Babcock. They are buried in Rest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Grand Rapids, Kent Co., MI. Parents place of burial unknown and will get obituaries out of Grand Rapids, Kent Co., MI., Public Library.
The parents had other children: Gerrit, Burnie and ? son, daughters: Mrs. Gertie Wilholt, Mrs. Josephine Schuitema of Grand Rapids, and Mrs. Elizabeth Landheer of Kent City, MI.
Do any of these names fit in you Bylsma genealogy?

I have some photo request from the Coatsville Cemetery where you took the picture of her grave. Do you live near this cemetery?
