Bio and Links
I really enjoy helping out others find their families as some other volunteers helped me. Also I can't see making a trip to a cemetery to find one or two relatives and not documenting as many graves as I can.

But PLEASE don't ask for transfers if they are NOT your direct relatives. Uncles, aunts, cousins are NOT direct relatives.

Any corrections are welcome. My eyes are not what they use to be!

And hopefully all the many, many additional information requests are for your relatives only. I'm the one doing the leg work, sometimes in dangerous neighborhoods. I'm in my mid-60's I can't run too fast anymore so the thought of someone sitting in front of the computer researching other people's relatives without being asked kind of irks me. If you want to document others relatives, by all means get out there with a camera and start walking the cemeteries and submit them to Find A Grave!

And I definitely will not change dates or spellings of what is on a gravestone. If there is a mistake I will, however, put it in the notes section.

Mary Churilla
You have attached to Mary Churilla, Memorial #108418058, parents I have never heard of. It appears to fit looking at the 1930 USFC, but then I could not find reference to Mrs. Ann Coffta in any link to her the sisters listed in that census. The Coffta name appears in her obituary as a sister living in Fontana, California. Also the names of her parents Appear in the obituary: Paul Churilla and Susanna Legath. Pursuing these names from her obituary was a lost cause, and completely consfusing. Seeing Charles (Charles Bela Churilla) and Anna (Anna Kolesar) attached to her memorial gave me some hope of resolving the puzzle of who her parents are. Can you tell me how you came to link these parents and how you know that they are the correct parents for Mary? Im still not convinced this conundrum is solved.

Hello, we were wondering if you would allow us to use your pictures in our family tree. Please know that we always cite both Find A Grave and the photographer (unless asked not to) for any pictures we use. We want others to know who really deserves the THANK YOU. Thank you so much for considering our request.

Parents for this Otto Dettloff
Hello,

This Otto's parents are Charles and Caroline nee Krause Dettloff. Wife Marie Shultz. The correct Otto Dettloff you want here is Married to Margaret Distler. And his parents are Charles and Amelia nee Dodt Dettloff . He was b.29 May 1871 and died 28 May 1930. Both death certs can be found on the seeking Mi site. If you need further proof see they're mrg. certs.

Sincerely Yours, Mark
