Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Milwaukee, WI and have my German and Czech lines there and my Norwegian lines in Vernon County, WI. I have other lines in Jamestown, VA and in both Pennsylvania and Ohio.

I grew up and married in Melbourne, Florida and we moved to western Washington state in 1972.

I've been involved (obsessed) with genealogy since 1984. I was a long time Girl Scout volunteer and love spending time with my (of course!) fabulous granddaughters and grandson.

update: The Sunset memorial cemetery burial list is now online on the Hoquiam, WA website. I don't know how complete it is but it looks extensive. It should be noted, however, that the city does NOT have all of the graves in their records at all. I myself have found some from the 1930's that are not listed at city hall.

I am willing to photograph graves (as my health, time and weather permit!) in Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Cosmopolis, Elma, Montesano, Sharon/Porter and several other cemeteries in Grays Harbor County.

Please understand that records of some of the smaller cemeteries are either incomplete or impossible for me to verify beyond a few online cemetery surveys. Sunset Memorial in Hoquiam is difficult at times as noted above.

RE: Thank you
She is not but that headstone is like none I've seen - a little chair with baby shoes!

RE: 139916272 Antonia Ruzicka
Antonia most likely has a headstone. I was doing a marker survey of that section last fall and have not gotten around to taking pictures yet. The weather forecast for this weekend is good, so I should be out at Union at least once.

When asking for a transfer it is easier to do it from the edit option on each memorial under the sac option for corrections/edits. Thanks..just makes it easier.

Am very interested in John Thielen, He is my son's 4th great grandfather. Am working on his family and don't know much about his father's line. Would like to get as much info on him and his wife Lucia Theis. My son's connected thru their daughter Lucia who married John Frey. Please contact me.

RE: Jennie Wittingslow Dean
Hi Dianne,

Jennie was my grandfather's first wife. My grandfather was old enough to be my mother's grandfather, but that is another story. Jennie's brother Joseph also happened to be the husband of my grandmother's aunt.

I am in touch with my cousin and friend who created Jennie's marker, and we would both be interested in anything you are able to share, as neither of us live near Aberdeen.

Thank you!

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Things got a little crazy the last few days causing me to go off on a side track.

Thanks for transferring David's record to me.I have updated his record and linked him to his parents.
