Bio and Links
I enjoy Find A Grave, a place where I can pay a virtual visit to the graves of my loved ones, many graves I have never seen. I am pleased to be a contributor so I can create memorials for my family as well as for other families. I am always happy to make changes to existing memorials. The reason I have so many more memorials managed than has been added is a cemetery has been transferred to my care. If you are related to any person whose memorial I manage and wish a transfer, in most cases it will be honored, if not my family. Please use the edit for suggested changes and transfers.

Prefer not to make transfers to contributors who will not transfer or who strictly uphold the relative guidelines. Who better to love and care for a memorial than a family member?

Also, I will not transfer to those who create memorials with only a name (little or no other data at all, no married name for females, and burial unknown), just to be "1st" or just to "add numbers." This is not fair to those who spend hours and hours of time doing research in order to create a meaningful memorial. In addition, I will not transfer to anyone who knowingly creates duplicates.

PLEASE-You are welcome to use a part of or all of a bio I place on a memorial. If you do tho, PLEASE give me credit with reference to Find A Grave. THANK YOU. (lt)

Thank you.

Hajek family
Hi Louise,
I am hoping we can compare notes regarding the Henry John Nepomucky Hajek family that we are both part of. I know we both contacted Roger at his wonderful Liska family web site: what a great job he has done, opened so many doors to my own study of the Hajek and related families. Please do contact me and let's share some information: what's mine is yours! Barry Foster

Jacob Petree Memorial

I have posted a general picture of Richmond Cemetery in response to your request for a tombstone photo. Three surveys of the cemetery have been completed in the past and none found a tombstone for Jacob Petree. I also checked the Ray County tombstone records and he was not listed.

Thank you for the research you have done on this line. Jacob Baumgartner is my 7th great grandfather. His son Friedrich is my 6th great grandfather. The information you have entered on these families have given my a great amount of facts on my family.
