I've been working on my family genealogy for over 40 years. I love learning about my ancestors, where they came from, how they came to America, etc. I love the mystery and challenge of finding the final resting place of some of them. I really like Findagrave.com, as it has helped me find them, and find distant cousins in the process. I am retired now and hope to be contributing more to this.
RE: Milewski headstones Hi Deanna-I checked the records at St Adalbert and for all of the Chicago Archdiocese and the only Joseph Wisniewski close to 1954 is a Joseph P. Wisniewski who was interred on 10/7/52 at 71 years of age in St Adalberts in Section 6, Block E, Lot North 1/2 of 29. Could that be him?...Mary
RE: Milewski headstones Hi Deanna-We've had a break in the weather and I hope I can back to St Adalbert's on Friday before we get snow again. I'll check for Joseph and let you know. The database that is available at the cemeteries can be tightened down to the cemetery you are at or for all Chicago Archdiocese cemeteries. The last name is going to make for a long list to check but if he's not at St Adalbert's I'll check the full database....Mary
RE: Barkmans in Erie I added the other three photos. I don't know the source for alternate parents for David Barkman. It is not on the tombstone itself. You will have to ask the manager of his memorial where she got it.
Did you know you can make edit suggestions and links for any memorial? No transfer required. Click the edit button at the top right of the memorial page and there is a list of possible edits for name, dates, relationships. The corrections will go to the manager who can accept (or reject) with just a click. For example, I sent you an edit to link Janette to her parents. There should be a notification at the edit button at the top of your home page.
Barkmans in Erie In addition to the ones I added, I also have photos for Frederick Barkman Jr (1848-1920), Howard Barkman (1907-1992) and Everett's wife Janette Pfundstein Barkman (1900-1986) and will be glad to post them if you would create the memorials. Just let me know.
RE: Roy Matthews Headstone If it was Martha and Christine than not nearby, they are in a completely different area from Roy I just always look at all the ones with same last name when I make the trip. I show no record for you Kingsley, but my records show an O. C. Mack d. 17-April-32 but is in an UMG so no stone, no record of wife Mildred. I also checked the other cemetery records and find nothing, sorry.
