Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family tree since 1999. The primary branches are PODBOY/PODBOJ, ROK, PECARO/PECORARO, BORRIS, and SCHULTZ/SCHUBELTOWSKI. I love locating family members and reconnecting with the past.

Amazing similarities exist between humans of different races, colors and beliefs. The similarities that join us far outweigh the differences that separate us. There is unity within our diversity.

My objectives on Findagrave are to link family members, add obits or biographies, provide grave or crypt locations and -- with the assistance of countless volunteers (my angels!) -- include photos of final resting places. I strive for quality, not quantity.

Up until the summer of 2014, I tried to visit each memorial I created (plus others that related to them in some way) on birth and death dates to commemorate the event. It was my honor and privilege to do so. Unfortunately, life stepped into the mix and I could no longer devote the time it took to keep up with the task. Perhaps one day I can resume the practice.

If you find any errors or have additional information (dates or places, etc.), please let me know. And if you have photos of any of the people remembered on these pages, feel free to upload them.

RE: Joseph Novak memorial
Hi, Patti I took care of it for you. Sometimes I let my research get the best of me. I find things and think,that might be really important to someone. I usually post them, go back as time permits and type them out to add to the bio. The obit came from The Daily Notes (Canonsburg, Pennsylvania)21 Aug 1970, Fri•Page 2 if you need that. Also are you related to him, I ask because if you would like to maintain his father's memorial too I can transfer to kind of keep the family together. I was, when I get back to that area going to photograph his father's headstone.I have a large part of my family from Canonsburg, Pa and buried at both St Patrick and Oak Spring. Also if related I took photos of a Frank Novak at St Patrick's died 1918 really neat headstone with photo on it. Find A Grave Memorial# 176507521. If you have any information on him to add to his bio it would be appreciated. Thank you very much for time, Jennifer

Appreciation of your hard work
I want to thank you for all the work you did by finding the graves of my family members and many other families.
I apologize if you feel I am not grateful for all you've done for me. I'll do my best to be more patient.

Other brothers and sisters were John Liszewski, Michael Liszewski, Joseph Liszewski (Lippe) Marchana Liszewski Yettkie and Mary Liszewski Kroll. Look forward to your reply.

Mt Carmel Cemetery-Vincent Duff gravesite
Hi Patti-Vincent Duff is buried in an unmarked grave. I have posted a picture of the grave location and I am sure about the location as there are grave numbers in the concrete. I also included the GPS location on the memorial page in case anyone wanted to visit the gravesite in person...Mary
