I began researching my own genealogy at the age of 15 in 2000 when my Mother got me interested in it. She had started genealogy in the 1970s, but it had come to a halt when she needed the 1910 census to be released. Since then I have become addicted to researching my family, my husband's and a few of my friend's as well. If I neglect to leave a thank you note for anyone who fulfills any photo requests, I'm sorry. I get bombarded with genealogy contacts every day and sometimes I lose track. I know that genealogy would be much more difficult than it already is without the help of volunteers. So thank you all, for everything you do.
Names I research: Killian, Solomon, Catlege, Eckhardt, Olesinski, O'Beck (originally Hoebeke), DeGlopper, Fochtman, Alexander, Eastwood, Couts, Meredith, Vigil, Burris, Casey, and many others.
CEMETERY PHOTOS OUT OF MY AREA: Anywhere I travel, I usually stop and visit cemeteries that are old or interesting. If I have posted photos from other states or areas outside of Southern California, I took those photos on a trip, and unfortunately cannot take volunteer photos for those locations.
Harry Quinn I claimed and fulfilled your request for Harry Quinn but when I went to post my pic, I see there is ALREADY a photo on there?? There is a "Little D.T. Gallager" buried between Frank and Harry Quinn. No idea what to do with my photos.
Frank Quinn I claimed and fulfilled your request for Frank Quinn but when I went to post my pic, I see there is ALREADY a photo on there?? There is a "Little D.T. Gallager" buried between Frank and Harry Quinn. No idea what to do with my photos.
RE: Oakwood Cemetery-Muskegon, MI that's alright. I made my youngest daughter mad with me and the world...her name is Mari-Collene and goes by Mari. At 16 she came back for the DMV at 16 getting her license all in a huff!
"I tired of being a Catholic sister" - she proclaimed. "what," I asked. Then she explained that she keeps having to say "Mari-Collene, none, Cowles". LOL NUN get it?
And it really sent her into tears in the second grade when her teacher asked her to spell her name out loud..." Captial M A R I hyphen capital C O L L E N E" then the teacher wanted to spell "hyphen" of all things!!
