I love Genealogy! I love it so much, I actually spend time doing family research for other people in my spare? time. I've been doing it for many years and this internet stuff really blows me away. My husband is somewhat engaged but he mostly lets me indulge in my hobby alone.|
Every day I learn something new. Not just about my family, but also about our country, and what pioneering spirits our ancestors had to settle and tame this beautiful and once very wild place. I try to research the history of each place I come to so that I can get a feel of what my ancestors were faced with and their daily life. It has really made me appreciate them more and has renewed my pride in the wonderful country they built.
I discovered Find-A-Grave while trying to work with the Tombstone Project on USGenWeb, but it didn't seem to take off too well. Some states, like Iowa & Illinois for a couple, have actually published their burial lists on line. What a find!! While Find A Grave can be a great Genealogy resource, let's not forget the main purpose is to document the burial sites of our people, i.e. record the location and photograph the headstones when possible. So many cemeteries have already disappeared and every day we lose a little more.
Our family names are: Ammeling, Barron, Beabout/Bebout/Beebout, Becker, Beekman, Befort, Benner/Bender/Binder, Berens, Blatter, Blum, Bohannon, Bohm, Bohmer, Boughton, Brodbeck, Brungardt, Cheetham, Chriswell, Cilplinger, Clark, Cobb, Cook, Cox, De Snick, Dechant, Deibler, Dicks, Doerfler, Doland, Doll, Donven, Doppler, Dreiling/Dreilingk, Duck, Eschelbacher, Eschenbrenner, Fedley, Fink, Finley, Fischer, Fisher, Fissner, Forsyth/Forsythe, Frank, Gehrig, Goetz, Gowensbach, Griffin, Haffner/Heffner, Harlan/Harland, Hauer, Haus, Heil, Henneigh/Hennigh, Hill, Hoffman, Hoope, Jamison, Jans, Jesel, Jones, Jund, Kaiser, Kauffman, Kendall, Kirke, Klipphan, Knoden, Knox, Kohl, Konig, Kramer/Cramer, Krebs, Labattie, Lambert, Lang/Lange, Lash/Loesch/Losch, Latheimer, Laubenheimer, Lichtenstern, Lightburn, Linenberger, Ludlum, Maddock, Mahr, Mamer, Markle/Mercklen/Merkel/Merkle/Merklin, Marshall, Maser, Mattingly, Mays, McElroy, McGrew, Mellinger, Miller, Moer, Moll, Molter, Montgomery, Moore, Mortlett, Mueller/Muller, Nebergall, Newberry, Nichols, O'Hara, Otter, Peace/Pease/Piess, Pfister, Pooley, Poppleman, Ray/Reah, Reger, Reuzel, Rhem, Riedel, Ruder, Schad, Schmidt, Schumacher, Schump, Seiler/Snyder, Shupp, Smith, Snook, Soars, Sprenger, Stacher/Stecher, Switzer, Taylor, Thaner, Thompson, Thurman, Trabaugh/Trarbach, Tweedell, Van Kinderen/Verkinderen, Waddington, Wagner, Wanger/Wenger, Wartmann, Weaver, Wilson, Wolffskehl/ Wolfkiel/ Wolfkill/ Wolfskiehl…. and many more.
Find-A-Grave is a great site. I'm not a cemetery walker, however, if I can be of service research wise, please let me know.

|Jack Franke||RE: jakob Piller|
A few days ago I did find jakob Piller and if you would e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can send you this information so you can update his memorial.
OK, I got the photo. The headstone must have been placed since I took all photos in that section....or.....I missed it. But you have it now.

I am trying to find the location for Jakob in Oakwood cemetery, Traverse City. The cemetery office does not have records for him in Oakwood or Oakwood Catholic. Do you have anything that may help me. He did die at the Traverse City State Hosp. which had a special section in Oakwood. Sometimes people were removed to Ann Arbor Mich. for special purposes if the body was not claimed. I find his death record in the Michigan records but it does not show his death cert. which would show his burial record site.
Traverse City, Mich.
Turns out your were right and the cemetery was wrong. I checked with the office again and they determined that Mrs. Harris is in Section 16, Lot 602. I will check there tomorrow. I noticed that her parents are in section 16 and have photos attached to their memorials. I previously photographed all markers in that section, but I did not list Mrs. Harris. It is possible I missed it the fist time. I will check it again tomorrow.

|Nancy Philipps Waits||RE: Pending edit|
Yeah my sister and I will take care of both my parents' memorials, since we actually knew them.

Ok, I see you do not know my father, did not read what I put on his memorial, and can't resist trampling on our grief. I did not create his memorial because some creepy person jumped on it before he was even in his grave. Rather than do the decent thing and delete it, she transferred it to keep her "name" on it for credit. When we have gotten through our tears I will create a fitting memorial as I stated quite clearly. It is not a lonely memorial waiting for strangers to write it. I already know all 4000 of his relationships and don't need a strangers help. Please focus your time on your own family and leave mine alone. All the crap about caring volunteers is belied by the aggressiveness with which you are insisting on interfering with how we honor our own parents.
|Carol Philipps||Do we know you?|
I am curious about the note you posted on my fathers memorial. How did you know my father? I don't recognize your name.
|Nancy Philipps Waits||Pending edit|
Why do you have a pending edit for relationships on my Dad's memorial? Did you know my Dad? I'm not sure that I have ever met you. This whole thing is creepy.
|TRICIA||RE: Hennigh Photos|
You are very welcome. I sent correction for spellings. Thanks, I try my best to get good photos. Sometimes that is hard. Proper Lighting,bugs and weeds are all my enemies lol
