Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family has been in the central Texas area since the 1840s, so my efforts have been concentrated in that area, mainly in Bandera, Medina and Kendall counties. I am the county coordinator for the Atascosa County, Bandera County, Comal County, Gillespie County, Guadalupe County and Medina County TXGenWeb sites, which have (and still are) turning up a lot of interesting history. I have also been working on my husband's Gillespie County family tree (I swear he's related to nearly everyone in the county!), and on my son-in-law's family tree, which has me researching in Guadalupe and Comal counties. Between all these, the list of names I'm researching is substantial.

I strongly believe in free genealogical information. That's why I volunteer for as many local genealogy websites as I can find, and I post my results to free genealogy sites. I encourage everyone to add their burial records to this wonderful database, so that these memorials, some fast disappearing, will truly never be lost. If you find your family here, and would like me to transfer ownership of the page to you, please let me know! I'm not into racking up big number counts on my stats. I AM into having family members monitor their own kinfolk's memorial pages! Please request transfers through the memorial page itself. Due to the overwhelming number of correction/addition requests I have been receiving, I may occasionally transfer memorial pages automatically to the requester. PLEASE if you are requesting a transfer, make sure you are logged in to Find A Grave when you make the request so I will have your member number! Also, please be aware that a large number of the memorial pages I have created are my relations, so if you send a request for transfer and I don't immediately comply, it is probably because I am related to that person as well. Usually a flower on the page with the signature "Family Historian" is a tip-off that the person memorialized is a relative.

I happily give permission for my Find A Grave photos to be used by anyone for their family research.

I'd like to acknowledge the invaluable assistance of the intrepid Jane Jahns Rice (thanks, Jane!) for assisting me with photographing the large San Geronimo Cemetery in Seguin, Texas.

Thank you
Thank you for the obituary you posted for Salvador Gutierrez, Find a Grave #113444506. I just noticed it and my Mother, his sister, broke down in tears (happy tears). Thanks again. It meant a lot to us. Emily

RE: Alvin & Lillie Mueller
Not a problem, I was in the middle of typing that I didn't know which was which when I clicked on the pic to check a spelling question. I had to back up and start the message over!

On the headstone photo on your memorial it says "Buried in Santa Fe", so the San Geronimo one is the cenotaph. I will make a note in their bios of the cenotaph in Texas, and link to your memorials.

Thanks, Sidney

RE: Charles R. Aldridge #76553561
Donna -- my apologies! Your request for photo was listed within the Bethlehem Cemetery in Marshall County TN. The information on the request matched the headstone that I photographed. Clearly it did not match your "real" request! Wish it was what you needed! Very best, TJNVACHA

Melody Kindla Moore
Hi Donna, I am transferring the memorial I created for Melody Jo McCord Moore. Thomas Kindla was her step-dad. I thought that you might be able to share it on Bandera All Class Reunion & Remember Bandera When facebook pages as I am not a member of either one. Her obit only ran in the Kerrville Daily Times and not in the Bandera papers and I think that there are some of her classmates that would like to see it.

I am also transferring the memorial I created for her brother, Butch Kindla, to your care. I know both will be well taken of by you.

Thanks so much, In memory

I understand the rules on find a grave. I was just giving some back history on the cemetery not many people know how that little cemetery got started. I take care of 15 graves in that cemetery with alot of pride. I am related to the heimann's through my beloved oma if you ever need any dates or info on the family I probley have it.
