Please note that my memorials are my relatives, with the exception of one or two. If you are a closer relative to anyone I have on here, such as great granddaughter, etc, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you as long as it isn't my direct ancestor.

I don't mean to sound hateful, but I have traveled extensively in the U.S. and Europe to research my lines. I've also DNA tested my family and some cousins in the pursuit of finding remote connections.
I've been interested in my genealogy since I was a child. My father was the family historian, and I have taken over where he left off. Only this time DNA is part of my research.
Although my father's grandparents came over from Bohemia in 1881, his mother's maternal line, and all my mother's lines were here in colonial times. So, one part of me is in only a 3rd generation American, and the other part is an 11th generation.
My grandfather Frank Kruta was adopted by his stepfather James Kruta. His biological father remains unknown until a Y-DNA match is found.
My father's lines are the Braums, and Zemans who originated in Bohemia and immigrated through Ellis Island around 1876. They went to Chicago, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
His maternal lines are the Yagers and Velmans (Veulemans) from Missouri via Germany and East Flanders, the Barlows from the Germanna Colony in Virginia, and the Singletons and Siberts from Kentucky, Indiana, and Missouri, and Yoakums and Keeneys from West VA. Dwight Yoakam is a 7th cousin
My mother's maternal lines are the Greenes, Bruners, Tarrants, McCurrys, Russells, G'Fellers, Hubers/Hoovers (Amish/Mennonite), Mercers, Taylors, Browns, Painters from Greene County, TN. There's a 250 year history back there since that's where my grandmother was born. Also, the Watkins from Sullivan County, TN, the Tarrants and Manloves from Dover, Delaware. We share a common Manlove ancestor with the branch who married into the du Pont (chemical company) line, and the Allisons from Maryland.
Her paternal lines are the Burns from Scotland to Pennsylvania, the Smiths from Tennessee, and the Cloyds and O'Banions from Kentucky.
Blakey vs Mt. Pleasant I am guessing that at one time it had the name Blakey but was changed to Mount Pleasant. I think the two Hale records should be transferred to Mt Pleasant and then Find A Grave should merge the two records for them. That will keep you as owner of memorial but will have the links from her records.
I'm an novice at genealogy; but I was trying to trace my Snodgrass family name and I came to your listing for Joseph Snodgrass. The one referenced in the subject. What I'm curious about is if you have a citing for his birth year. You have it listed as 1710; but I've seen 1712 and 1718 listings on Ancestry.com. It seems plausible that if his birth year is actually 1718. He could be the Joseph Snodograss mentioned in Find A Grave Memorial# 25493312 and actually a son of William and Catherine Snodgrass.
RE: Just a note She's in the 1870 census in Saline County Arkansas with Martin & Rachel and that's why she is connected to them. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org & let's problem solve. If she is not their daughter, I want to connect ther correctly. In the meantime, I research a bit more. Sheila
Ancestors from Bohemia Hello there: I have noticed your marvelous endeavors concerning your research concerning the Bruner, Tarrant, etc., and then noticed ob Find A Grave you mentioning having ancestors from Bohemia. So I was wondering if you could give me give me counseling or any information as to how to go about research for Bohemia. As my maternal grandparents came from Bohemia and I have come to a blank after locating their passenger list as they arrived in United States in 1904 in New York, then went to Lebanon, PA., then to Chicago, where my mother was born in 1910 (Josephine Kulisek, dau. of Joseph & Kristina); from there to relocated to Spring Lake, Itasca, Minnesota. Well any advice or help you may provide would be greatly appreciated. With forever love and eternal gratitude, Alvina email@example.com
