My cousin Kathy Surma McHugh had collected some Parker family ancestry information. In July of 2001 (I think it was) Kathy printed out many copies and passed those out to her two siblings and her 38 surviving cousins on her Parker side.
It took me year or so before I discovered I had an interest in finding out more information about my ancestors. I decided to put Kathy's information in the form of a chart on my computer, so I could understand the information and relationships better. Then I decided that I wanted to add more names and information to the chart, including, of course, my mother (maiden name Zeller) and her ancestors.
After I found a lot more information, then it became harder to find even more. So for something to do, I eventually created 12 more charts for various living and deceased relatives. They are posted for all to see for free on RootsWeb WorldConnect. A link to my chart is below.
In 2010, I started creating memorials here on FindAGrave. I also submit information to other people to add to memorials they created. I add photos to other's memorials, when I find a decent photo. I also digitally repair and adjust those photos.
Feel free to copy and use any photo I have posted. It makes my day when someone emails me or posts a message to my FindAGrave profile to tell me they like an old photo I have added to a memorial.
I very much want to thank a woman I have never met, Francine York, #47486450, who very generously transferred the management to me of 17 Parker memorials she had created, after taking a photo of 17 grave markers in Old Oak Cemetery in Norridgewock, Maine.

Hermann Baetz and Hedwig Baetz Graf-Galske Hello Larry, Thank you for posting the photo of my great-uncle, Hermann Baetz and for finding the immigration info for his sister, my great-aunt, Hedwig Baetz Graf-Galske. I did however send you a private request not to post Hedwig's immigration info as a 'note' on her memorial. I do appreciate your efforts, and I would rather include the immigration info you found, in her bio, so if you would like to send the immigration info to me as an edit/suggestion ?
