Bio and Links
Recently I have started tracing my family tree, and in searching for the burial locations for my ancestors my family and I have found a fun and enjoyable hobby. My nine year old daughter views it as a treasure hunt. She even wants her own camera so she can take pictures by herself instead of using/sharing mine. Now as we go through towns she asks if there are any cemeteries that we need to stop at.

My favorite "treasure" that we have found was by accident. While searching through a rather large cemetery for a distant relative we found my grandfather. He had been killed in a car accident two weeks before my mother was born. I never knew when, how or where he died until I started tracing my family, and no-one was left who could remember where he was buried. At first when I saw the headstone I thought it was my uncle, as he was a junior, but I just kept looking at the date and knew that it wasn't right. Finally it dawned on me who he was.

I hope everyone out there is having just as much fun as we are. Good luck in your treasure hunting.

Stefania Reut Pietrasiewicz
Your post on Find a Grave indicates Stefania Reut Pietrasiewicz, was the sister of Mrs. Valeria Zagorski of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and she also had a brother, William Ruet of Chicago. I found the same info on a site created and maintained by the Clark County History Buffs & the THORP COURIER (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) 07/07/1949. WHAT A NICE SUPRISE! William Ruet was my grandpa & I remember him well. He was Stefania's baby brother. Their parents were Justin Reut & Monica Perchorowicz. She also had a brother, Joseph Anthony Reut and sisters Aniela & Anna. I have pictures of some of them. you can email me at joe.ruet@gmail.com for more info. I have many questions.

Karolina Millinger Kappelin
Hi Bob,
I'm researching the Millinger family and would like to know if there are any relatives of Karolina in your database. My husband's 2x great grandfather, George, is the brother you mention in the memorial information. I've researched the family extensively in Steinach, Germany and would like to correspond with other family members in Wisconsin. Becky Millinger
