Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,
I'm a wife, mother of two, Mother in Law and new Grandma, keeper of the fur babies, and enjoy not only genealogy, but scrapbooking, amateur radio and traveling.

Areas of research include Southern Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, Michigan, Canada, Germany, Wales, and Cherokee Indian Nation in Oklahoma. I have been working on our family history since Jan 2008.

I will post my photos to families and their memorials first. Family belongs to Family.... they are not just "numbers" to us. Any requests for transfers of relatives will be gladly honored - no matter what the connection.

Keeping the memories of our ancestors alive is something we should all strive for - our history is something to embrace!

Remember Them Always
RE: Your Graafschap photo request
I was not aware of the getting 'dinged' part of claiming photos. Thanks for the info! Personally, I wait to claim a photo request until the day I am going out to fulfill them.

My main concern was that my request was removed, so that's why I re-requested it; another volunteer may be able to take it sooner than you are able to.

Also, I've come across numerous cemeteries where it is believed that the whole cemetery has been photographed and indeed they have not; many headstones are missed. So I don't go by that when requesting photos. Just best to have someone check it out firsthand. Then if the headstone isn't found, I put in a request for that info to be posted on the memorial. Just thought you'd like to know. ;)

Thanks again for your willingness to take the photo. I greatly appreciate it! =)

Remember Them Always
RE: Your Graafschap photo request
I appreciate your willingness to take the photo(s) for me. I completely understand about the snow. However, I re-requested the photo since the way you marked it removed it from my requests. In the future you may want to just 'claim' it and send the requester a message. Otherwise, just leave it as is so someone else can claim it. Just my opinion. ;) Here is the memorial name(s) if you want to claim it:

RE: Herman Bonzelaar obit
You may already have the answer yourself but I spent a few minutes tonight researching Mr. Bonzelaar's obituary date.
1) The obit was published on Monday, April 30. He died on Sunday the 29th and the visitation was Tuesday, the next day.
2) Previous to entering the rest home, he lived at 245 East 11th Street. I checked Google Maps and found that this address exists in Benton Harbor (Michigan) but not in St. Joseph. Therefore, the obit must have been published in the News-Palladium.

RE: Herman Bonzelaar obit
I'm in Tennessee on R&R at the moment. I will check my files when I get home. However, I can advise you that the obit came from either the St. Joseph Herald-Press or the Benton Harbor News-Palladium. Q: Did you notice my caption on the obit that lists Mr. Bonzelaar's DOD as April 29, 1956?

Evert Van Kampen is my direct ancestor, came over from Holland. Your names on the memorial and I wondered if we are related? I love meeting new cousins.

RE: Lively Prairie Cemetery

Sorry I'm just getting this.
The Lively Prairie Cemetery is right next to Lively Prairie Church off of the road from Sparta to Houston & Red Bud.

Let me know if you make contact with the cemetery administrator because we would like to replace damaged or missing head stones for the Meyerott Family.
