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! Lois
P.S. Please use the "Edit" button to add obituaries, biographies, etc. I will gladly add them!
Fanning Leonard Hi Lois, Help Please! Somehow, Fanning Leonard has been linked as a spouse to a man I maintain named Amos Prindle. I sent some links and it may have been my fault. I would appreciate it if you would remove that link off Fanning Leonard's page. Thank you for your assistance/help. Nancy Brewer
RE: Claro Claussen Hi Lois- It is memorial 12776014. His name was spelled Klaus Ludwig Clausen on his tombstone. In the churchbook where he was born, his name is written Claas Ludwig Claassen. The name you found in the Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths Index was badly transcribed.
