I have been doing genealogy for the past 14 years. Tracing the: Kreiser, Steinebach, Mueller/Miller, Bendele families (German Catholics to come to Grand Rapids and Traverse City, MI), Youker family of upstate, NY and Traverse City, MI, Harkins, Bonnell, Collins families of Michigan and Jay Co., Indiana, Pearson family of Peterborough, Ontario, Cornett family of Fremont, MI, Densmore/White family of Los Angeles, CA, etc.
Very interested in any of these families and those that have married into them. Also any other local families of Allegan, Newayo, and Grand Traverse Counties, Michigan.
VanDyke transfers I have transferred the memorials to your care. In the future, it is most helpful if requests are made through the edit button. That way, I am less likely to make errors and it is just much easier.
Only the person who manages the memorial of your great-uncle Carl A. Kreiser can make those attachments. Her name is Kathleen (McCollom) Farley (#46481227). If you're a 'Find A Grave' member, contact Kathleen thru the edit tab of Carl's memorial and ask that she make those links. Otherwise, contact Kathleen thru her email address: Kfarley40@charter.net . I'm sorry, Adam, that I am unable to make the link myself.
RE: Belile History Hi Youker83 I have it all. Back to France and a bit of New England. We had a ancestor Sarah Allen that was captured in an Indian rad on Deerfield Mass. She was taken to Quebec ransomed and then choose to stay. Belile is a corruption of Belisle. How can I help? Willing to share it all. I have descent as well. Would love to update you branches.

I just let a whole lot of time get away from me without answering your latest email. Sorry!
Thanks for adding the family photos and gravestone pictures. Nice job!
Lately I've been trying to sort out all the kinks in the Dutmer/Dutmers family. Anna Vogt married Martin C. Dutmers. I'm going to the G.R. Library on Friday to look up Dutmer/Dutmers obituaries which I hope will help resolve some of the mysteries of who is related to whom.
