Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will gladly transfer any listing to a relative who requests it (and actually encourage it, as I'm sure a relative would maintain it more lovingly that I can), provided you follow the proper Find A Grave procedures (as in, PLEASE USE THE FINDAGRAVE TOOLS, AND DON'T POST THE REQUESTS ON MY MESSAGES PAGE). Many of my listings are not related to me, but since I did take the time to record the listing and take the photo, I just ask for a COURTEOUS request. (Don't demand, please, that's just rude and unnecessary).

Much of my family history centers around the southern suburbs of Chicago.

Since I also live here, I have been cataloging local cemeteries that have not already been done.

For the entries I have added to the Bohemian National Cemetery in Chicago, I apologize if I have transcribed the months wrong, as I have no knowledge of the Czech language. I seem to mix up "June" and "July" very easily, so feel free to correct me!

RE: Melvin Deforest Duguid
Okay--I think I've transferred all the Duguid and related memorials that I'd created. If I've missed any, please let me know. I'm always happy to connect people with their ancestors.

Josef Dvorak
Thank you so much, Rachel, for the work that you do and for posting the information regarding Josef's gravesite. I hope I am right in believing Josef to be my grandfather's brother. I will look in my family tree book to find the plot at the Bohemian National Cemetery on Pulaski Road in Chicago, IL and type it in.

Again, thank you for transferring this to my...I pray more info will come to me so that I can give more information to Josef's memorial page.

Bless you for all that you do.

RE: Melvin Deforest Duguid
It's my pleasure. I have several generations of family buried at Fairview Cemetery and I've been filling in information for all the cemetery burials from time to time. Sometimes I get carried away and hunt down parents and siblings buried elsewhere. If there are any other Duguids and related family memorials you'd like (e.g., Jason and Achsah Duguid, Amos and Miranda Halbert), just let me know.

Hi Rachel,

Thanks for sponsoring Melvin Duguid's memorial page and for adding the great photograph. If you are related to the Duguids and would like to me to transfer management of the memorial, just let me know.
