Bio and Links
Bio Photo I really enjoy this website. I wish more people would find it, especially those in Europe who are searching for records of those who crossed the ocean in hopes of a better life, and also to help those of us, on this side of the pond, who would love to see pictures of the gravestones of our ancestors whom we can't go visit.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make this a great meeting ground for exchange.

If I have created a memorial for someone who is a member of your family, and you would like to have its' management transfered to you, just let me know.


"Dear Ancestor,

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out,
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care...
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist,
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago,
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you."

(This poem was written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer).

RE: Drabot
You are welcome. I just added some Drabot names to Find A grave. A couple in Pennsylvania and a few in Syracuse. Glad to help. If you need help with any names let me know. I have a subscription to Ancestry and Genealogy Bank.

RE: Frank Lupinski
Sorry for the delay in responding. I see your heading says Lupinski rather than Lubinski. All the documentation I have states the Frank is buried in Badger Cemetery. Your note states they are buried in Saint Mary Cemetery. I do not see a photo of their headstone, however.
Would you please mind taking a look again in Badger to ensure this is incorrect? Thank you for your efforts.

RE: Esther Zinda
You're welcome. My guess is the person simply didn't try hard enough or incorrectly spelled Esther's name.

Esther Zinda
She is indeed buried at St. Mary's in Evergreen Park, IL. Her location is Section Q, Lot 17. I just put in an edit request. She does have a stone. Someone misinformed you that they couldn't find it.

RE: Thank you!
Very happy to do it! If you want any transfers, just let me know. I'm not connected very many people at that cemetery. Just adding burials when I stumbled upon them. So if you want any transfers, just ask! Happy Holidays
