Bio Photo Richard Norton is 50% Irish; 25% German; 12.5% Swedish; and 12.5% Norwegian.

Richard was born in Paramus, New Jersey in 1958.

Richard went to Montclair University and later Rutgers University gaining a Masters Degree in Chemistry. He worked at most of the major pharmaceutical companies and spent seven years at Merck in Rahway, New Jersey.

He started work in genealogy in 1986 when he made a list of cousins and later wrote it up in Microsoft Word on his Macintosh computer. He found living relatives in Sweden and in Norway. He is still searching for living relatives in Alsace, Germany, and Ireland.

His Alsace origins are in Strasbourg. His Norway origins are in Farsund. His German origins are in Berlin. His Conboy Irish origins are in Hollygrove and Coalpits, Athleague, Killeroran, County Galway. His Finn and Creedon Irish origins are from Millstreet, County Cork. His Kershaws were from the Netherlands, but were in the US before 1850. His Burkes and Nortons have not been traced back to a county in Ireland.

Va Nest Family in Neshanic Cemetery
Dear Richard,
I see that you have been quite active in researching/posting information on the Neshanic (Reformed Church) Cemetery. Do you know if any of the original burial records still exist? And if so, where?
I am researching my family members buried there. Most of these relatives have the surname Van Nest/Van Neste and they seem to have been buried close together, possibly all in the same original lot.
'Would greatly appreciate hearing form you. Thanks & best regards, Randy R.

Milner Tree
Good Day Richard
You sent my cousin Chris Chiaponni a link on the Milner family tree on Family Search. Can you tell me how and when John Miler 1700-1763 from Helperthorpe Yorkshire England arrived Nova Scotia and continued the line with Johnathan Milner 1743?
Also I we were told that our Milner's had 2 "L"s but I see that is not the case.

Thank you for your time

Ensko Family
I'm researching the Ensko family that immigrated to the U.S. from County Clare, Ireland. Would you please contact me? Or tell me how I can email you directly?
Thank you,

Alvilde M. Tanberg
Richard I was wondering if you have any relationship to Alvilde M. Tanberg? You posted her picture on this webpage. She is my Great Grandmother. She gave birth to Ethel Tanberg who married Clifford Milner who are my grand parents. They in turn gave birth to Robert O. Milner who was my father.
Thank you for your time

Re: Eugenie Caulkins & Robert Gill
These are my grandparents. I am working on a family tree. I entered Eugenie's info before I realized you had already done it. so...

1) Can I (or you) merge the two entries? and

2) Do you have genealogy for this family?

Thanks in advance.

Nathanael Fedde
Hi Richard, Nathanael was a friend of my grandmother's, when she went to St. Olaf the year 1905-1906. Are you related? Would you like a transfer? My grandmother kept a diary that year and I could send it to you electronically. It's 28 pages if you print it out, so warning on that. She mentions Fedde, as she called him, so that is why I did his memorial. I was trying to find all of her friends and also the people she boarded with. Just let me know.

RE: William O'Meagher, M.D. (1829-1896)
Thank you. Regarding the birth year discrepancy, in the obituary I attached as a photo it reads 1821 and the bio reads 1829. Do you have anything more positive such as a record?

John Howard Voorhees (1901-1974)
I thought you might be interested to know that there is another memorial (#51529642) for John. He is buried in Pleasant Plains Cemetery in Franklin, New Jersey. He was the second husband of one of my VERY distant cousins, Nina L Keator Bossow (1st husband's last name). He is buried with his parents, John and Mary.

RE: Portfolios
Hi Richard,

Thank you very much for following up on my request. Actually, I managed to get into your info with the help of someone out at Family Search. The info was helpful but I was a little disappointed that it wasn't the actual death certificate. I was particularly interested in his cause of death.

In any event, thank you so much for your time and consideration. It was very thoughtful of you to go the extra mile.

Best wishes,
