|Bio and Links|
I have always loved cemeteries, both for their aesthetic qualities and the infinite stories they contain about individuals, communities, and history as a whole.|
This site is a wonderful escape for me; I appreciate the way it combines art, history, and paying respects to the deceased.
I take photos here in Polk County, Florida, 99.99 percent of whom are not my relatives. If you find that I've added a memorial for your Floridian friend or family member, I'll be happy to transfer the memorial to you if you wish. I'm also able to add information and return to get photos of nearby graves, etc.
I depend on generous Find A Grave volunteers to take photos for my own relatives in cemeteries in Michigan, Ohio, New York, and throughout New England. Thank you, thank you to all those who have created memorials and added photos and information for my family members in faraway states.
Although it is not my sole reason for contributing to this site, genealogy is my passion. I love to help others; please contact me for more information about any of my primary families of research. I have volumes. Literally.
Packard, Beal, Ford, and Everett in Michigan, New York State, and Massachusetts.
Rudisill and Miller in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan.
Rushmore in New York State and Long Island, also in Michigan.
Allard, Ray, Tracy, and Bingham in Vermont and New Hampshire.
Cloyd, Woodmansee, Mutchner, and Swihart in Ohio. Also Mutchner in Maryland and Cloyd in Virginia.
Wolnowski, Kwiatkowsky, Wilkewitz, Kummer, Wobbrock, and Jaffke in Detroit, Michigan and Prussia/Germany.
Kruzynski and Lewandowski in Toledo and Detroit.
Foye, Leach, Casson, and McVey in Brooklyn, NYC.
Practically everyone in Massachusetts and Connecticut pre-1800.

I just left an edit for you. If you need help/reasoning with the edit for the maiden name, please let me know. I have Kujawas in my family tree.

Can you shed light on what looks like two distinct grave markers for Lydia? Trying to get an accurate death date - seem to be lots of differences not only on the headstones but in the literature as well! Thanks for any thoughts and insight...

Thank you so much for transferring these memorials to our care. It is much appreciated! Margie
I added a Photo for Bertha Remez that you asked for. I also added Robert William and Stephanie Remez. Maybe you could add the family links if there are any.

I didn't have a picture for the gravestone of Mary Edith Foster and her husband John Pfister (my great grandparents from my dad's dad's side) your picture is lovely :)
If you don't mind, may I copy your photo for my Ancestry entry for them?

Was Carolyn Buried in section 6? If so Yes I do have the large memorial stone they dedicated to all those that are buried there. I will try to post one of the pics onto her page. if it says there isn't enough room I'll let you know. If that does happen can you delete the cemetery picture from her page? that way you don't have to lose any of her pictures.
talk to you soon.

We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.
If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.
Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

I have another question for you on the Wobrock family. I was going through some of the trees on Ancestry.com and found one that lists my great great grandfather August Wobrock, as the son of Ferdinand and Augustine, which I knew, but it also gave some of his brothers and sisters such as Frances, Bertha, Anton, Anastasia, and Joseph. I was wondering if you might have any info. on any of these names. Also it says that Ferdinand born 1830 was the son of an Albert and Antonia Wobrock. I had seen in a marriage cert. that Ferdinand was the son of an Anton and Antonia, could it be that Anton and Albert are the same person? If so, it would make sense because I came across a Find A Grave memorial for a Caroline who was born 1834 and was the daughter of Anton, # 98140263
Thanks for any and all help,
