Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a native of Longmont, CO. I'm been interested in genealogy for almost 50 years but I did take time off to raise a family. Research is much easier now then it was 30 years ago. The Denver Library and Federal Archives are not far away and that has been a help.

When I started taking photos my husband didn't come but after a visit to a cemetery that was on a one lane road on the side of a mountain he was hooked. The markers were very old and very interesting, so now he willing walks around a cemetery with me as we locate the markers that were requested. He trims the grass and pulls the weeds around the markers to be sure I get a good photo. We also stop and visit relatives and friends and look at interesting markers. The two remarks on markers I have really liked are "This is the only stone she left unturned." and "I told you I was sick."

You have my permission to use headstone photos that I have posted for your genealogy record.

RE: Karol Tursic
Thank you for looking. I have his death certificate and it sayes Mt Olivet, I believe it must be the one in Wheat Ridge. He was living it Denver at the time of his death. The Tursicks and Majors are also our family. Most of them were buried in Longmont. They were miners. I was wondering if you might know where I could reseach newspaper like the Farmer and Miner on the web? I am working on our famliy tree. I went to web sites for Firestone, Erie and surrounding areas. Found some intersting history there but wish I could find picture and news articles. Thank you again. Carrie Bockelman
