Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

RE: Nicholas Gillis
Hi Jim, that's what I thought, so no worries. I just thought it would be nice to keep his mother's older stone there as well. In case you aren't aware, if you click on the picture, once it opens, then click on the picture again, it will give you a bigger version so it's easier to read. Regards, Nadeen

Hi Jim, why are you asking me to remove the tombstone picture from the memorial? Nicholas and Ann are on the same stone. I left Ann's "old" stone in the picture to show that a new stone had been placed, but it includes both mother and son. Regards, Nadeen
