Am so glad I came across this site. It has lead me to relatives I never see or knew about, new friends and many I will never see.

I recommend everyone to get involved in genealogy as you will be amazed at what you can find about your roots and where it will lead you. It is a history lesson in itself..

To my cousin's Maurice and Kay, I am very thankful to have found you. You have been a tremendous help with our family history and I am very grateful.

I am also very interested in my Mother's side of the family. The Mennonite's and our distant Amish families. I am very intrigued in their ways and lifestyles.

Would love to find more about our Polish root's. I have very little information regarding my paternal grandmother's family: Rose Theresa Lechowicz. All the searches I have made become road blocks. Possibly due to the uprisings, wars etc., I am thinking maybe many of the documents were destroyed?

Same with our "Dutch" roots, the Alder's. Henry being my 2nd great grandfather and his brother John my great grand uncle. From Netherlands/Holland and lived in Kent County, Michigan.

Surnames I am interested in are:

My Father's side:

De La Chaumette, DeLashmutt, DeLashmut, DeLashmitt, DeLashmit, DeLashmett, DeLashmet, Lashmit, Lashmitt, Lashmett, Lashmet, Lashmutt, Lechowicz, Wiklanski, Gibes, Kozinksi, Alders, Rominger, Stuart (Stewart), Padgett, Nelson, Palazy, Zulkiewski (Zulski)...

My Mother's side:

Burkhart (Burckhart, Burkhard, Burckhard, Burkhardt) Snider (Snyder, Schneider) Brubacher (Brubaker, Brubacker, Bruppacher) Eby, Lehman, Gehman, Bontrager, Weber, Weaver, Detweiler, Gingrich & Gingerich, Wenger, Sherk, Gerber, Hostetter, Herr, Yoder, Bauman/Bowman, Martin, Good/Gut, Hershey (Yes I am distant cousin of "Milton Snavely Hershey")...

Would love to hear from more relatives!!

Last of all, if you don't see certain information on a memorial or an obit that doesn't show certain living relatives, it is because of privacy laws. Unless I have your permission I cannot add your name.

Great Grandfather
Hi Jana.

Thank you for adding my great grandfather to this site. He left behind many children when he passed, one of which was my grandmother Frances. He immigrated to the USA and worked as a lumberjack in the great woods of Northern Michican, where he had the fatal accident.

I have added some family history to this Memorial.
I am a cousin to him through his wife' family. I was surprised that no one seemed to know that the Sobleski family is descended from the Sobieski Family of Poland. But to be fair must of the family from Poland did not speak English the fist Generation here. Some spoke Russian others German and a few Polish. As you probably knew it was literally illegal to speak, read or write in the Polish language during the Russian occupation of Poland. It was also dangerous to be known as szlachta for many generations due to the Political reprisal factors when the peasants revolted after being paid to do so by the Germans and Russians. I guess I spend too much time doing this, but I saw it immediately. Please accept the edits that I have sent to you. They are all from church records in Poland. I have attached the citations but not the actual Parish documents. Have a excellent day.

Family from Poland
Hello Jane Marie,
My mother Elisabeth found your profile on this webside when she was looking for her Father's family roots. We know that Katherine Gibes and Kazimierz Anioł had three children: Sophia Wróbel, Jan Anioł and Aniela Sierleczko. Jan Anioł was my mother's great grandfather. If you want I would like to make contact with you and give you more informations about your family from Poland.

This is my e-mail:

Best regards,
Monika and Elisabeth

Sister Pollak
Please review her memorial. The obit is now under the bio and it would be good of you to delete it under photos. If you have a photo of her, it would add much to the memorial page. Thank you!

With respect I think Mary V Spencley Gwilt is the same person as Mary Violet Spencley Chase-Gwilt. Both buried in Lakeview Cemetery in Mackinaw City Michigan.

Are you a descendant of Cora V Fox. I saw that you added an obit to this memorial.

You mentioned Edwin and Lasena Slocum.

I am a descendant of Edwin Slocums and would like to connect.

Thank you,

Hartley George White & Ida Gaumer
I see you created Find A Grave records for Hartley & Ida. As a FYI you might want to add that they are buried in the Old Section of the cemetery in Lot 500.
