Bio Photo In fourth grade, many,many years ago, I became involved with this wonderful hobby. Thank you for having this website!
Cemetery: euphemism coined by the early Christian writers. It is a Greek word for dormitory, a place to sleep.
"...passing down memories is the strongest link in the gossamer bridge that binds us as people."
David Baldacci.
"The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living." Marcus Tullius Cicero.
In eternal honor of our ancestors
Who left behind so much,
Who started here with so little,
That we might have everything.
Pax Christi.
Genealogy is the warp on which the fabric of history is woven. It is the most immediate, personal kind of history, and for many the most satisfying kind,rooted in the pervasive values of family and heritage. It is an essential part of the one great task each of us is called upon to undertake----the exploration of who we are.
From the Vesterheim Genealogical Center and Naeseth Library literature. Madison, Wisconsin.
A woman was trying to impress her friends at a party one afternoon. "My family's ancestry is very old." she said. "It dates back to the days of King John of England." Then turning to a woman sitting nearby, she said condescendingly, "How old is your family, my dear?"
"Well," replied the woman with a smile. "I can't really say. all of our family records were lost in the Flood."
They, who blazed the trail and broke the Virgin soil,
Ne'er garnered half the harvest of their toil;
To-day, wher'er they sowed, others reap
To them is sleep."
their brave deeds and, alas, too often their very names are forgotten.
""High fortune may be tossed away,
Nor health nor skill my long endure,
Only the name I bear is sure,
And since from it I cannot hide,
Lord, let me hold my name in pride."
It's hard to understand how a cemetery can raise its burial costs and blame it on the high cost of living.

RE: Additions...
Ok. Good to know. I have submitted edits and then had management transferred to me without the edits done, so I like to ask. Thanks for all the good work you do.

I have moved John's memorial but all of the others, in their obituaries, say that they are buried in the cemeteries where they are at.

RE: Family Jindra.
I have searched for a Holy Cross Cemetery II in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin and there doesn't seem to be one. So my memorials will stay where they are and I will not be transferring them. Thanks anyway.

RE: Greenwood obits.
Thank you, Yes I have been in contact with Shari Milks over the years and sent a few things to her. I can look through and see if there is anything else that might be of interest. I have met a few of the relatives in the Manitowoc county area. Many of the Greenwood's have done DNA testing with Ancestry as well as myself and that has been very interesting.
