Hi, I love going to cemeteries I enjoy the monuments,their beauty and creativity , the peacefulness and the strange experiences I have enjoyed in cemetaries. After I found this website I am going more often and take pictures of random graves too. I started taking pictures of the neighbors of my grave requests , I realized some are related to each other and they were someones family so hopefully I am creating someones geneology and someone is creating mine, I have already found some peoples relatives when photographing their graves randomly and I appreciate it when they let me know. I always photograph veterns graves, because they should never be forgotten for the service they gave to our country and for our freedom. If you have a grave request for the Chicago area I will try to fulfill just let me know. thanks

I have been looking for several year for a friend of mine name Ron Novak. His brother was Frank Novak. When I knew them, they lived on Eddy Street in Chicago near Kedzie and Elston. Both brothers attended Lane High School and the University of Illinois Chicago, like myself. I remember that Ron, but more Frank, were rather interested war board games. I also remember that both of them were involved in Chicago politics, 33rd Ward 1st Precinct.
By the way, Ron and I created the first bylaws or constitution for the Graduate Student Council at UIC. Ron was also very active in the undergraduate student council at UIC acting as parliamentarian.
I found an obituary for Ron on the internet that contained a picture of him. The picture looks like the Ron Novak that I knew. I would like to know if my recollection is accurate and the Ron Novak in the obituary is the same Ron Novak that I knew.
Please respond to this email. I would really appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

RE: maggie miller oak ridge cemetery springfield,il No, I am no relation. I found the article in the newspaper, as listed on her memorial, when looking for some others. She is buried in a particularly large section of the cemetery, one with 90% single stones, and many graves are unmarked. I have photographed many of the stones there but did not have a photo of anything for her.
I just started researching a new line in the tree, which includes the Deutschers. I am wondering if you would allow me to use the headstone photograph you took of August and Martha Deutscher. I will give full credit to you and findagrave. Thank you for considering this. Eileen
Karl & Wilhelmina Kempf Linda, Many thanks for trying to obtain their headstone pics...sorry you went to all that trouble just to find out that they were unmarked. Your effort was very much appreciated. Laura
