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.

Lehnen Family
Thank you so much for entering some of my family's graves on this site; I'm on the quest now to enter more and make some connections.

Would you transfer the Lehnen family to my management?

Emma Amanda Melius 1879-1950. I believe she might have been married to David Almarion Irvine and was mother to two children: Walter and Quenton. The information on your memorial record is conflicting suggesting that Emma was married to Quenton. Do you have information to support the family links? Thank you

Thank you Bob for your efforts and your wonderful story. I came across this memorial of my great granduncle, Albert Mascheck. The obituary in it confirms that he is my relative based on the information regarding his siblings. If I could contact the person who added this information it may help me gather some more information regarding his family. Can you put me in contact with this person?

Hi,
Thank you for accepting those edits for the Bunker and Whitney families. I noticed that you have entered almost all of the names listed in this cemetery. I was up there yesterday and took a few photos randomly and added them to your memorials. When possible, I like to make the connections, but I felt bad about sending you so many at once. I plan to make a trip up there later this season and photograph that whole cemetery (it is not very big) and was wondering if you would mind some more edits if I find them. I still have one more family to go with the pictures I have (the Coles).

Thanks,
Gail

question about #121782415
Bob -

I am trying to locate the source of your addition #121782415.

A member recently visited the cemetery and could not find this gravestone and I have no Mrs. John Nichol in my family tree who died on the listed date.

Thank you.
