Bio and Links
Bio Photo Not long ago genealogical research was limited to retired intellectuals who wrote family histories that were little more than repositories of dates and places. More and more people today are wanting to record the lives and experiences of their parents, grandparents and other ancestors. Books are now being written filled with stories, humor and interesting events as well as family relationships. But these books are not always as widely available as they could be. People continue to put more and more writing on tombstones, but size and cost are the limitations. Personal and family websites are becoming more popular since they provide more room to write, but there are drawbacks, such as when they completely disappear from the net. That is why this website is so popular. It is easy to define family relationships and link between relatives as well as add some rather large biographies. This is why it is of interest to me. I must also give credit to those who untiringly record cemeteries that produce leads that I have followed when nothing else has been available.

I found a Baby Mary Gams, 1917, in the Bridger, Montana Cemetery, would that be Mary Gams that you are looking for?

Snodgrass families
Greetings Mr. Goms

It looks like we are related. I am a Snodgrass Cousin.

I have invited you to my private family tree website.

Perhaps you can update your families on the site.

I believe he is buried beside Mariah however that side of the stone was never carved maybe if he is close family you could have it engraved for him.

Hi Richard, I'm the guy that has been involved with the Chestnut Hill Cemetery research and we have emailed a few times regarding the Morris Family. Just read your article in Family Chronicle and wanted to extend my congratulations on a fantastic job. I just happened to buy the magazine today and was sure pleased when I saw, "Morris" and "Portville, NY". I had not known about it and just happened to run across it. Very nice job!! Mark Weitzel

Thanks so much for looking. I was hoping for a monument with her name. I've found multiple spellings and names: Janice, Jannie, Ragina, and Virganah (with several variations). The search continues. Thanks again.

Thanks so much for looking! I appreciate it so much! I was hoping to prove that he was the son of my James Graham Hood and link him up to the rest of the family. Hopefully I will still be able to do that. Thanks again!
