Bio and Links
Edmund Burke said "People will not look forward to posterity, who never look back to their ancestors." I do believe that is true and have been dabbling in genealogy research on my husband's and my families for about 40 years plus I have a library science background. Between the two and the love of solving puzzles, I love research of any kind. When I found this site I was excited because it is easy to use, has a wealth of information on ancestral burials, plus it's free! I love this site and am on it every day searching or adding information. I will keep working and seeking more information to help our family trees along, plus help others as I can.
Thanks for this wonderful website!

P.S. Please use the "Edit" button to add obituaries, biographies, etc. I will gladly add them!

Nicholas Smith
Hi Lois -
We went to Hillside Cemetery to look for Nicholas Smith and did not find him as of yet. Are you certain he is buried at Hillside? We checked with the Palatine Historical Society cemetery records and they did not have him listed. Would you be able to provide more information on Nicholas or where you obtained the information he had buried in Hillside. Thank you. Jennifer

I saw you added information to this memorial. Would you like me to transfer the memorial to you? I am always working to get the memorials back to family. Just let me know.

RE: .....
In answer to your query. This is quoted from the FAQ:

"If you have official documentation for the update but have been declined, please send the update again under "suggest any other correction or addition," adding source and documentation that proves the update. Please make every effort to contact the manager of the memorial page and keep in mind that the manager may have differing information."

SAC is the standard abbreviation for this section of the edit tab.

I was asking for a source for the other edits you sent.

I asked them to be sent via SAC, not a brusque message posted to me on my public message board.

I approved the suggestion which came with a source, and credited you for it, on her memorial page.

Unsure what is meant by 'her home page' since that is a personally run blog or website and she died in 1947. She has no home page.

Please send the information via SAC, a copy and paste would be nice. Thanks.

Hello - Is there a source for the edits on Mrs. Anna (Schmitt) Prante? If so could you mention it via her SAC? I did process her maiden name as I found a marriage announcement.
