Bio and Links
Bio Photo I signed up to take photo requests in Whiteside County, ILLINOIS but caught the bug to dig further into my own family. Spending more time in Winnebago County to revisit my childhood but finding my roots are more in German Valley in Ogle County on my dad's side with the Brauer/Pollard line and Granby, Quebec, Canada & Durand, IL on my mom's side for the Parker/Hanford line. Check out my virtual cemeteries and if you have any info, shoot me a line. Happy Linking!

Remembering F.A.G. colleague, Ellen Kennedy. I did not know Ellen personally but have seen her presence on many memorials in our local area. May God hold her and her family in the palm of his hand.

Remembering my cousin and fallen graver, Gary Boomgaarden, who passed away on January 3, 2013 at the age of 61. We had just found each other the previous year when I messaged him one late night after repeatedly seeing STEAMERFAN on all of my relatives memorials. As it turns out, we share the same great-great-grandparents. I am so sorry I was not ever able to meet him in person but so glad we did meet up through F.A.G. Since being a member, he added 16,951 memorials. Thank you Gary for all of your contributions here!!!! We will all miss you ~ I will miss you! ღ

Thanks to Loren Carlson, who is not only from my home town, but has created many of the memorials for my relatives and has graciously transferred them to me when requested, starting with my brother's memorial. Thank you Loren for answering all of my questions. Second is Gary Boomgaarden aka Steamerfan. He was a great resource for learning more of our family history on my dad's side, and obtaining the Boomgaarden (with two AA's) book. And thank you D. Frederick Birely for teaching me to make my memorials more in depth than just slapping up names and dates. Thank you Dale!

Happy Fall 2014 everyone!!!!

Chris Collman
Thx for all your work and transfer
Hi Connie,
Thanks for the Collman transfers, unasked for but appreciated. While I live far away, for the last 20 I have been doing research on Collmans and relations that lived in and spread out from Stephenson County IL. I greatly appreciate what you and others have done to share information. I try to do the same. Best, Chris

RE: Richard Stoddard Stiles in Greenwood
Connie, The photo of R. S. Stiles comes from a frame that holds the photos of Early Winnebago County Settlers. It is in the local History room of the Rockford Public Library. I photographed the photos and posted them on Find A Grave. I have two out ninety some that are not posted. One was buried in California and the other has a a mix up locally. Feel free to use the photo and if you do not get a good copy, email me and I will see if I can send you a better copy attached to an email.

RE: Henry Lambert
We are related through Arthur K. Lambert. I have added a picture of Henry and Harriet to your memorial and I believe I have linked A.K. Lambert to his parents so you can see a picture of him too.

I will send you more information via email.

Again I am so glad you have that memorial for Henry and Harriet, because I always wondered why they were not buried in South Dakota where they lived and raised their family. But your information tells the story.

RE: Token for Pye
You are so very welcome---I am glad you liked it. I have had many sweet Siamese cats in the past, just like your beloved Pyewacket. They are special.

Hugs,
