Cuthbert Burials Kensington Burial Ground Are you descended from John and Lydia Cuthbert? I have information about Lydia Matthews Cuthbert's ancestors, had been trying to find what happened to her when I found records you contributed by accident.
Swiss Gravesites I am just wondering how you find out what grave sites your ancestor would have been buried in Switzerland? I have many death records but they don't state where the burial took place. Thought you could help me learn this. My email address is Scarr @ Westliberty.edu (no spaces). Thanks for your help!
Zimmerman continued... Did Christian and Christiana die in Philly and do you know where buried perhaps? Yes I too have encountered many brothers marrying sisters etc. and if one dies young they sometimes marry another sister too.
Zimmerman Hello, thanks for reply. Yes difficult when also spelled Zimmermann. I love 'reuniting' family members on here, even if I am not related. Wish I knew where some of their other children are buried, could have them linked. thanks
