Am so glad I came across this site. It has lead me to relatives I never see or knew about, new friends and many I will never see.
I recommend everyone to get involved in genealogy as you will be amazed at what you can find about your roots and where it will lead you. It is a history lesson in itself..
To my cousin's Maurice and Kay, I am very thankful to have found you. You have been a tremendous help with our family history and I am very grateful.
I am also very interested in my Mother's side of the family. The Mennonite's and our distant Amish families. I am very intrigued in their ways and lifestyles.
Would love to find more about our Polish root's. I have very little information regarding my paternal grandmother's family: Rose Theresa Lechowicz. All the searches I have made become road blocks. Possibly due to the uprisings, wars etc., I am thinking maybe many of the documents were destroyed?
Same with our "Dutch" roots, the Alder's. Henry being my 2nd great grandfather and his brother John my great grand uncle. From Netherlands/Holland and lived in Kent County, Michigan.
Surnames I am interested in are:
My Father's side:
De La Chaumette, DeLashmutt, DeLashmut, DeLashmitt, DeLashmit, DeLashmett, DeLashmet, Lashmit, Lashmitt, Lashmett, Lashmet, Lashmutt, Lechowicz, Wiklanski, Gibes, Kozinksi, Alders, Rominger, Stuart (Stewart), Padgett, Nelson, Palazy, Zulkiewski (Zulski)...
Last of all, if you don't see certain information on a memorial or an obit that doesn't show certain living relatives, it is because of privacy laws. Unless I have your permission I cannot add your name.

P.S.: if any relative is interested in more Meister information, let a message at Anton Meister http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSmcid=46925356&GRid=48383832& I will pass by from time to time.
Jennie Sytsma Please do not include biographical information in the flowers section. It is against Find a Grave rules and will be deleted when found. I will be happy to add any information you might wish to add to the bio section. Just use the edit/other tab to send it to me. Thanks!
Ronald L. Andrews in Cross Village Jana, Hope you are well and miss your wonderful company ! Here is what is giving me fits. Ronald Lynn Andrews is in the Greenwood datebase but they have very little information on him. His DOD is supposed to be 19 Aug 1950 according to Emmett County Vital Records.
In a printout from Greenwood, he is supposed to be buried in Bayshore/Carpenter/Old Indian. However, LDS shows in in Cross Village.
Bottom line, is that I cant find an obit and see that you added some great information about him back in 2014.
Johanna Bathke Graul Hi Jana, could I lend a bit of family info. to your comment about Johanna? Her father and mother were Julius and Mathilda Bathke, not Carl and Bertha. They were my great-grands and she came with them from Germany to marry Mr. Graul. They did that back then, could have been like a mail-order bride situation. But I know this from an older cousin of my dad who knew much about the old family. Please don't think I'm being critical, just wanting you to know who these folks are. Thanks for all you do and others who help us all check our family trees and discover new things. Sincerely, Carol
jadowniki Hi, I have been researching my own ancestors in this area and one of the few pages that came up in a web search was yours.
