Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been looking for my family history for about 20+ years now. A few family members are still M.I.A. No burial site to speak of. Most of my family are Ovechka's, Houser's, Zeller's, and Schwank's and lots of people in between. It's a long work in process.

I have to say this. My recent and what seems to be an often occurrence of huge egos prompts me to say this. We're all here to help one another, so if that is not your intention then you should not be here. People who take photos of gravestones should be doing it as a hobby or to help others. This copyright stuff is ridiculous. This is not a business and you're not selling your photos. This is ALL voluntary. Voluntary means you do it because you want to, not because you expect something out of it.

Also, if you have a memorial and deny transferring it to a family member who requests it is also ridiculous and just plain mean. Your not helping anyone. Why would you want to do that to someone? Because YOU want that pat on the back? Come on. Are you that insecure? We are all here to help one another, so if you are that full of yourself and expect a bouquet of flowers and a million dollar prize, it's not going to happen.

If you have different information than I do for the same person, that doesn't mean you're right because you disagree. This is MY research, not YOURS. You have NO credibility with me. If I'm wrong I'll figure it out. Till then, you will have to live with that. Insisting that I'm wrong and sending me nasty emails is not going to get you anywhere. AND, leaving messages on my family's memorial saying I'm incorrect because I didn't "fix" it is ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE!!!! AND WILL NOT BE TOLERATE!!!! YOU WILL NOT disrespect me or my relatives in that way EVER!!! Being disrespectful is not a way to approach anyone. If you can't help me correct the error, but you want to criticize it, then I don't want to hear it.

RE: Lamb / Ovechka
Hi again
Having thought again as to how we can ensure a search of Find A Grave will find him I have created a memorial for Constantine A Ovechka and Lamb and notorised the Ovechka one to see the Lamb entry I have linked both Constantine's to Elizabeth therefore she will have two husbands. I think this will help in the future I also have made notification on the 1920 Pueblo census on of the name change. I also amended 1930 census which had both his names listed so they will now be Lamb with ref to Ovechka the 1940 Census I have refereed to his name change from Ovechka I have a Robert on Find A Grave in Roselawn who was born 1918 his obit is on but it does not mention his parents however I think this will be the Robert from the Census if you have any further info that could link him to Elizabeth and Contantine it would be appreciated.
Thanks again

RE: Lamb / Ovechka
Hi Debbie,
I have link Debbie & Constantine its difficult under Find A Grave to enter a name change as his so that someone searching can find him in view of this I have entered his original name and put a note that he changed it to Lamb if someone searches under Lamb they will find his wife who is now linked to him hope that helps let me know if you have any better ideas.
I volunteer in the Special Collections area of the Pueblo Library one of our online databases has both of them listed as published in the Pueblo Chieftain with their dates of death if you would like a copy of the obituary or notification from the Pueblo Chieftain then go to the Library Website under the search tab select Pueblo obituary Index (bottom of the list)
Then enter in the surname and you will get back several pages of the name Lamb (some of the others may also be of interest to you) Constantine is on page 1 Elizabeth page 2 click on the Blue Request Obituary under Request and enter your E Mail details (Don't worry about the part asking for your library card you don't need it).
In a couple of days you should receive an E mail from Tabatha Davis Pueblo Library confirming your request then within usually 2 weeks you will get the information E Mailed to you and its free of charge.
At the moment we have over 150,000 names listed on the obituary index back to the 1870's.
Hope this helps.
Also if you wish to take over management of any of the memorials I have created just let me know.
I also have available to me the Roselawn Index as it was prior to it going down on their website should you have any queries regarding Roselawn.
Thanks for the input

Ellison, James Thomas

Thank you for posting the photo of James Ellison to findagrave.

He is a cousin of my son.

Would it be okay if I posted this photo on my Family tree?

Thanks, Carol Ellison

Dear Debbie,

Thank you very much for the burial site photo for Belen Valdenegro. I hope you did not have too much trouble finding it. Would it be okay if I posted this photo on my Ancestry tree?

RE: Gilbert Niesse
Thank you Debbie. I just wanted to check first. I agree with you. I have been helped by so many people in the past and I try to pay it forward. One lady recently jumped all over me for a headstone photo she took. I had saved it to my info and honestly didn't think about it when I sync'd my info with Ancestry. The next time I go back home, I'll just stop on the way and take my own photo. Problem solved!

Thanks for all you do!

Thank you for making a photo of Gilbert available. I'd like to add it to my Family Tree Maker info but it would also be seen on Ancestry. Would this be a problem?

RE: Charles Zeller
Sorry about that. Too many Reillys, Williams and Normans;) I look at this screen so long sometimes my eyes spin.

Anyway, Norman Reilly Zeller's (121635260) DOB is 18 Mar 1933. He was born in PA, but I don't know what town. Actually he was the oldest of siblings.

Hi Debbie,
I linked William and Annie. I also added a picture on Calvin's memorial.
Check out memorial# 21039998. Yours is a duplicate.
