Bio and Links
Bio Photo I really enjoy this website. I wish more people would find it, especially those in Europe who are searching for records of those who crossed the ocean in hopes of a better life, and also to help those of us, on this side of the pond, who would love to see pictures of the gravestones of our ancestors whom we can't go visit.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make this a great meeting ground for exchange.

If I have created a memorial for someone who is a member of your family, and you would like to have its' management transfered to you, just let me know.


"Dear Ancestor,

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out,
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care...
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist,
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago,
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you."

(This poem was written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer).

RE: Corp Charles Ely #15589396
Thank you so much. I moved your ELY photo to the graves of Edward Ely & Elizabeth Barker Ely and made the assumption they are Corp Ely's parents. I forgot to thank you for the commentary you provided with that photo that lead me to their graves. I am also looking for Corp Ely's wife Caroline Moltzner Ely and wondered if she might be in that family monument group but not yet recorded. Volunteers, like you, who provide additional information are to be commended!!!

Corp Charles Ely #15589396
Could you please remove one grave photo from the Corp Charles Ely #15589396 memorial so I could add a family photo, preferably the 3rd photo of the ELY monument since it is also in the 2nd photo. Unfortunately the manager Bev (#47588577) is deceased. I am requesting a transfer from Thank you for all your volunteer efforts as it is so good to see the burial sites of an ancestor.

Polish translation
Thank you very much for spotting my translation error and taking the time/effort to email me. My mother was Polish-American from a small village in northern Minnesota. Since I vacation in that area, I have been visiting local cemeteries up there for a number of years and encountering markers in Polish. And thank you for your offer of translating. I may very well take you up on your kind offer.

Always happy to fulfil a request. I didn't get the others you requested but did get some not on your list. Should upload them soon. Will try and fulfil your other requests in the spring.
