I am a 30-year veteran of the family history hunt! I am currently working to become a certified professional genealogist. I am willing to take photos of graves and search for records in the Kansas City metro area! I speak and read fluent Spanish, and can do look-ups in records from Spanish-speaking countries, too.I recently qualified for membership into the D.A.R. and want to share with cousins on the Wells/Hall line, please leave me your contact info and I will send you my membership number! I am trying to connect with descendants of John Burgess Wells and Josephine HALL's children as you can tag onto my membership to gain membership to DAR or SAR. I proved my lineage from John Samuel Wells to his mother Dialthia Balerma Josephine HALL to her father Thomas Douglas HALL to his father Thomas HALL (the Revolutionary patriot from Knox County, TN)!

Photo Thank you for adding the gravestone photo for the Edward B Lane memorial, # 76736198. It's a terrific photo but it's sideways. I've had a request from someone who viewed the memorial asking if the photo could be turned so it can be more easily read. Could you please do that? Thank you! And here's to teamwork! J F-B
RE: appreciate the lineage so I can update my data Sara, thanks for connecting with Helen. If and When you send her copies of pictures, she always shares with me as I still do work on Ancestry, she works both Ancestry and FTM. I asked her to add you to our Ancestry so it would be easier to keep our family info updated easier, so I am sure she will do that when she has time.. A Very busy gal, just like you, but as the saying goes, if you want something done, ask a busy person"!
I do still enjoy your contacts so feel free. I sure do hope your Mother is able to retrieve any detail or pics from the family Some members just do not feel or see the importance of this history being kept.
It always makes me want to cry when I see pics in an antique shop, knowing someone may have appreciated them.
Merry Christmas to you and your husband and Happy and safe New Year in 2016.
Sheri Lakeman Grabast photo request Hi, I saw your photo request. Can you please tell me the location in the cemetery? The cemetery office will not disclose location except to a family member, and the size of the cemetery makes locating a grave site very difficult without at least knowing the section. If it ever stops raining, I'll be glad to get the photo for you. Dave
RE: responding to your message Sara, Thanks for your response. I pray you were not offended by my referring you to our daughter, Helen. She is 51, I will be 70 soon and very soon! I also sent her your e-mail and forwarded to her the "find a grave" request, so hopefully the two of you can enjoy the family searching for many more years to come.
I know you sent some pictures years ago, but are you saying you found more recently? Would you be willing to e-mail those that are connected to our Hufnagle/Shering/Vanderslice families?
My husband is the son of John Edward Hufnagle John E is the son of John Shering Hufnagle John S is the son of John Augusta Hufagle John A is the so of Daniel and Elizabeth
RE: re: Vanderslice family research Sara, it is Wonderful to hear from you. Yes it has been a long time. I am still dabbling in our research of Hufnagle/Vanderslice names but am transitioning my research to our daughter, Helen. she has set up the following on Ancestry. Hufnagle-Osterkamp Deep Roots Feb_2014
I did forward your Find A Grave message to her in hopes she will contact you in the future I so appreciate all the work you have done on the family search. The record we have for Augustus M Vandeslice shows him buried in Nebraska.
Her e-mail, however is firstname.lastname@example.org..I know she will be excited to work with you. She ad her husband are in the process of moving so I am not sure how soon she may contact you or respond to you. She is very detailed and consciencous.
