Bio and Links
I started researching my family, as an amateur genealogist, of course that hasn't changed I still consider myself an amateur...although I have gained a lot of knowledge in the past 19 years of researching. What started as a hobby quickly became an obsession for me. After getting my first computer I soon found many internet family members with the common goal of finding our ancestors. Every time one solves a possible connection it is a real reward. I have had a lot of help from others, as well I have assisted many with their research and have made many new friends in so doing. Joining Find A Grave is my way of "paying it forward".

I added a note to Valentine Lowenberg born 1908 and it was for the wrong Lowenberg. Can you please delete.

Thanks, KVK

RE: edits for Grenfell, Wapella, St. John's cemetery
According to my records your information is correct re: the Gettel family. My source was another person who was researching the Baber Family tree. I do not know how accurate her sources were. I have some information on the Kindlein family (again from the same source) which I would be willing to share with you.

RE: edits for Grenfell, Wapella, St. John's cemetery
Hi memories
As I mentioned in my bio, I am researching several family trees. All the information entered are relatives of either my husband or me. I have 2 Elizabeth Gettels in my husband's family tree. One is her maiden name and the other is an Elizabeth (nee Lowenberg) Gettel. I'm assuming you are asking about the later. Checking my sources didn't help as I had 2 different locations - Broadview and Grenfell. So I will go with your original information.

OK, thanks for letting me know that! It's been really hard to track down this family, so hoping it works to talk to others. Keep me posted, and thanks tons for your help!

RE: Wapella cemetery Ekert
Thank you very much for pointing out the different years for Emelia and Godfild Ekert. The years that you stated in your message were correct as far as I know. Those were the years that I had for Emelia and Godfild in my database. I originally got the information from the headstones for my database. Emelia is my husband's great grandmother. The last name was spelled differently in the records that I have been able to find. Ikert or Ikiert are the most common ones. The only place i have seen Ekert is the cemetery. Sorry for posting the incorrect information. I am happy that you spotted it and told me about it. Thank you.
