Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired almost four years from the govt and have been doing my family research about two years. I'm stuck on finding family that is still living and finding photos of those that have passed. My families have immigrated from Germany, Poland and Yugoslavia. Not fluent in any of those languages so my research is stalled for now. Happy to help anyone that needs a photo taken, please do your best to find the grave location.

Would love some help researching a few names for birth and death info from Germany, Poland and Yugoslavia websites on

Ancestry name is georgiashirley_1. Looking for descendants of Herman and Augusta Groth in Germany/Chicago; Louis and Minnie Timm/Chicago; Guntzberger/Germany/Chicago, Jerbic - Yugoslavia, Poland, Chicago; George and Catherine Miller, Germany/Chicago.
Also looking for family of Anna Ritlop, Chicago and Germany.

I've seen that you have done some photo requests in Resurrection Cemetery, in Justice, Illinois. I was wondering if you could take some photos for me. Please tell me if this is too much. Their names are:

Anthony Ciezopka 1884-1945
Caroline Ciezopka Golden (golndyn) 1894-1945
Wladyslaw Ciezopka 1922-1923
Anthony Kuska 1879-1942
Victoria Zamas (Kuntel, Knutel, nee Wronczek, Kuska) Zamas was her last married name. 1884-1968

If it is not too much can you take pictures of the surrounding graves of Victoria Zamas, and Anthony Kuska. Also if you want, may you go to the plot where Stanislaw Kania (1878-1950), and his wife Maryanna Koperna (1882-1918) were buried and take pictures of the surrounding graves around them. All of these people have photo requests on them, except for the one's that are around these people's graves. Please tell me if this request is too much. I appreciate the work you volunteers do.

Please email me the pictures of the surrounding graves to my email:

RE: Antonio Passarelli # 153275378
I posted both, single and double photos on his site. They are good resolution and expandable for enlargement. Perhaps, you might still want to copy those and post yourself for the credit; otherwise I already gave you credit in their descriptions. So, you might want to save yourself the time by searching.

I don't see where you deleted a photo, as the first one you posted(a double and small, low rez) still needs to be deleted by you.

RE: Antonio Passarelli # 153275378
I went ahead and copied, cropped and posted the photos on his memorial. I gave you credit for the photos.
If you still want your name under the photos, then copy them; and let me know when you are ready. I then will delete mine and you can repost them; but you will still need to delete the first small one you posted. Okay? Thanks for your dedication. Randy

RE: Antonio Passarelli # 153275378
Thanks for trying. I looked at the photo and it is small and can't enlarge it. I went to Agnes memorial and enlarged the photo there, then copied it to retain it's size. If you want I can crop it to get the single stone for Antonio; post it; then you can copy it and repost it. Then I'll delete the one I posted after you do that. Please let me know either way. Randy

Antonio Passarelli # 153275378
Hello Georgia,
I'm related. You recently posted a tombstone photo for Antonio's wife(and him also), Agnes M Bruemmer Passarelli(memorial #142086248).
Antonio's memorial was just created and needs the same photo. Would you please post the photo you took of their graves, and maybe his individual stone if you have it? Otherwise, with your permission, I can copy and post it. Please let me know. Thankyou for your dedication and attention.
