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: Schmidt
My Woodford County Schmidts were originally from Ostfriesland and moved on farther west after initially being in Illinois. If your Schmidts were of Ostfries origin, we could well find some common ground. If not, Schmidt is not a very unusual surname so there may be no connection at all.

It looks like you made the changes, already. I don't even remember requesting anything else. Thanks!

Hi Lois,
The tombstone, as many old tombstones, has been worn down, but I was wondering if it is possible if the death year could be 1882 instead of 1852. This would fit better with the family.

Can you help me check this out.

Thank you,

Karen Rafferty

RE: Lukas tombstones
By all means, Lois, feel free to use any of the photos I have posted. If you need better resolution on any of them, just ask. (Hopefully I would be able to locate my original files. Ha!) Blessings, Barb
