Finished the Grace Cemetery in McDonald, Kansas just in time for their 125th birthday. Still missing a few obituaries but someone recently found some old newspapers so I'm hoping they get them on microfilm so I can look at them.

I am now working on the St Francis Cemetery and the Bird City Cemetery. As soon as we get some warmer weather, I am going there to take more pictures.

Anyone can use my photos for the geneology research. Please credit me for the picture, but you do not need special permission.

If anyone wants any of the memorial that I have posted, just send me a message. I will be happy to transfer memorials if they are not my immediate family.

Working on my family trees since 1976.

When my brother passed away in March of 2010, I wanted to do some kind of volunteer work in his honor. Since he is buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery, I became a volunteer for that cemetery. However, I also wanted to do the photos of my family that have passed on. Since my husband and I are retired, we began stopping at many little cemeteries and taking pictures of tombstones and listing them on the web site.

Thanks to everyone for their nice responses for the pictures I take.

Marilyn, #47393995

RE: William Burk 77638022
I found Grace with her first husband, Joseph Schilz. Memorial #130762874. I'm not a direct line descendant of Grace, but she is a sister of my direct line. Are you related?

William Burk 77638022
Hi Marilyn - I am wondering if the William Burk 77638022 is the correct picture. He married Grace Hazel Wilkinson. The picture does not have Grace on the stone with William. It is Lillie K. Could you please check into this for me. I sure would appreciate it.

Thanks Marilyn for linking her to her parents and all the work you're doing with obituaries and EVERYTHING! I'm not related, but trying to do my part also to help others, working on the Table Rock, Nebraska cemetery. I was hoping I'd find an obituary for her too, but no luck yet. It took me awhile to find her, because she is Mae Heer in the family obituaries! Everything else matches. :) Luella

I wasn't expecting a transfer, but thank you very much. My Uncle Carl Schreiner's the son of Johannes Schreiner and Eva Elisabeth Christel, who is the sister of Anna Elisabeth Christel married to George Frick. I have been researching the Christel family from Kolb, Russia, for many years, and 3 siblings live in Tacoma, and actually lived across the street from the Miller grandparents.

You appear to have a number of the Frick family as your memorials, and I would appreciate it very much if you could transfer them to me - one big, happy get-together. I would lovingly care them as I do their family in Tacoma. Thank you for considering my request, and if not, I do understand and appreciate your help. Judi
