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!

RE: Saint Mary's
Hi, I am only suggesting to change the memorial to be in the correct Saint Mary's cemetery. The valid Saint Mary Catholic Cemetery and Maulsoleum is the one with over 13,000 memorials. Sorry, my email seems to be confusing. Thank you. bhd

Hi has been added. If she is family and you would like a transfer don't hesitate to ask.

RE: Emma Schmidt Newman
Yes, I saw the source info, and that is what tipped me off that she was in the wrong cemetery.

There are only 2 towns and cemeteries in the entire U.S. named Fairbury, one in Jefferson County, NE and the other in Livingston County, IL. As she died in a county very near Livingston County, IL, and as she cannot be found in the Jefferson County, NE cemetery by the same name, it seems very likely that she is buried in Illinois, not Nebraska.

I got a little more from Ancestry but did not find their graves. I am tracing my own family that is how I got started in Find a Grave.
