Bio Photo Director of Historical Interpretation at Stuhr Museum LOVES to work on genealogy in "spare" time.Family connections include: Wilderman, O'Dell, Craft, Anderson, Aymond, Couvillion and on my husband's side: Cynova, Rohatsch, Duraczynski, Greenwalt, and more! If I have made mistakes in any of the memorials please let me know and I am more than happy to correct them.If there is a memorial you want transferred to your care, just let me know - I am happy to transfer, as per Findagrave guidelines. PLEASE use the "Edit" tab in the upper right hand corner area of the memorial to make your request as this includes all the information I need to make this happen. Working to enter all of the recorded Hall County burials. Most of the small non Grand Island graves have been entered, and as time allows, will work on photo verification. Working on the GI cemeteries as time allows. If the names and locations are posted, it will be easier for everyone to take pictures!

Frank Kilkenny
Hi Kay,

Thank you for processing the recent edits for Frank Kilkenny in St. Mary's (Wood River). He was struck and killed by lightening. I have uploaded the article about this event onto Frank's memorial if you are interested in reading it. I will have to come to the Stuhr Museum sometime. I have so much family history there in Wood River.
Thank you again for ALL you do! ~Mitch Noll

Hi Kay,
Would you be so kind to look at your photos for Lincoln Valley Cemetery and see if you have one that shows if Robert and John Harper are buried next to or near one another. I am tying up a loose end for John Harper Boyce.
Thank you, marilyn

RE: Westlawn-Hillcrest Vets
Thank you for the answer to our request. If you think of someone, please let us know so we can add the name.
Please let others know of this project sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326. The more people that know about it, the more complete our list will be. We know many that served in the military have no indication of their service on their grave.
Thanks again,
Carl and Carolyn Diamond

RE: Jacob Fluri photo
Thanks so much, Kay. There really isn't a "Ravenna" cemetery, Jacob's was the last one that I couldn't identify the exact cemetery for. This does it! Yay! We can make his memorial accurate now.

Jacob Fluri photo
Hi Kay, You posted a gravestone photo for Jacob Fluri, whose memorial is listed in "Ravenna Cemetery." Find A Grave Memorial# 39147811

Can you confirm that you took that photo at Highland Cemetery in Ravenna? That was the "municipal cemetery" at the time of Jacob's death.

Thank you!
