Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been enjoying walking the cemeteries in my area for a few years now. It's peaceful and it turns out to be quite a stress reliever!

The photos I take are for the benefit of others so please feel free to use them for your personal use or at any of the genealogy websites, including I figure the more places they go the more these loved ones will be remembered!

I have deep roots in the Dutch heritage which is very influential in my area. It's been a pleasure to take photos of the Dutch ancestors headstones knowing it has helped those in the "old country" reconnect with their US family branch.

Also, please use the edit feature to send a transfer request along with your member number. I will gladly transfer to you unless it is also my direct relative. Thank you!

Memorial #75436555
Hi friend...I see that her memorial is linked twice to Nick Andree. Somehow a double link?? Are you able to disengage one of the entries for her to Nick. They were each other's 2nd marriage.
I just returned from a trip and now I will work on my aunt's other relatives and look at what you have given me for Jacob Faber and his family. I plan to soon call the cemetery office where his wife is supposedly REALLY buried because I need to verify her sister's burial site for my aunt (granddaughter of that sister). Thanks for your help!

RE: Titia Ros
You are absolutely correct -- I am so sorry for the error! Thanks much.

You are the best. Thanks! I communicated with the volunteer who made Geertje's memorial page for Hillside Cemetery. He has cemetery records that show her interred there and her sister is buried next to her. I have found on rare occasions that families honored deceased by putting name and info on monuments even when body was somewhere else. I "get" why they would do that but makes our research get a bit tangled. I am going to call Hillside ofc at some point to ask whazzup. When i find out i will let you know. And...we should probably link both Geertje memorials to Jacob with notation. Stay tuned :). Thanks again.

My proposed addition
Hi Dutch Girl, my proposed addition is not correct. I followed a link that can not be correct. Hotze Annes Dykstra was not married to the person that I have been looking for. I am looking for Jennie Dykstra who was born 28 Aug 1856 Lemsterland, Netherlands and who married 3 times, first to Gerrit Schaafsma, then to Fokke (Frank) Dykstra (1856-1904) and finally to Albert K. Huisman.
