I'm a retired electrical engineer. I now spend a significant amount of time doing genealogical research. Additional information on entries I have made or those entries to which I have added photos is available on request.

RE: Gerwig headstone photos Thanks very much, Don. They're my 3rd great grandparents as well! I am descended from Christina E. Gerwig Wise who is one of Jacob & Christina's children. So, we are cousins to some degree. Small world! I will seek some of that info from you after the Holidays. Ciao for now, Merry Christmas, John Ellicott City
Gerwig headstone photos Hi Don, I am writing to ask permission to use the headstone photos for Jacob F. Gerwig (75153668) and Christina Lehmann Gerwig (75153733). They are distant ancestors and I would like to add the photos to these two individuals' records in my Family Tree Maker. Thanking you in advance, Happy Holidays, John Latchford Beck
Charles F. Aumen Thank you very much for the photo of Charles F. Aumen. I transcribed the inscription as best as I could, but do you have any idea what the last two lines read? Thank you again for your work, time, and effort, they are greatly appreciated.
I went on the Maryland, Births and Christenings Index, 1662-1911, and found out it is 1856.
Thanks for pointing that out. Sometimes you need another person to look at something and say, "Wait a minute, that can't be." Then you take the time to look at the big picture and see where you have gone wrong.
It's getting colddddd up here in New York. Winter is on its way. Perfect time to sit inside with hot chocolate and work on genealogy.
