Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired almost four years from the govt and have been doing my family research about two years. I'm stuck on finding family that is still living and finding photos of those that have passed. My families have immigrated from Germany, Poland and Yugoslavia. Not fluent in any of those languages so my research is stalled for now. Happy to help anyone that needs a photo taken, please do your best to find the grave location.

Would love some help researching a few names for birth and death info from Germany, Poland and Yugoslavia websites on

Ancestry name is georgiashirley_1. Looking for descendants of Herman and Augusta Groth in Germany/Chicago; Louis and Minnie Timm/Chicago; Guntzberger/Germany/Chicago, Jerbic - Yugoslavia, Poland, Chicago; George and Catherine Miller, Germany/Chicago.
Also looking for family of Anna Ritlop, Chicago and Germany.

In fact, I just read your bio. Let me know if you'd like help with searching for people on Ancestry, I have an account on there. I've also worked extensively with cousins still living in Poland and professional genealogists there. Cheers.

I have done nothing wrong, Georgia. I think you're taking edits and suggestions personally. This isn't about you or me, it's about the accuracy of the memorials. Have a nice weekend.

RE: Tactful message....
Hello. I wasn't trying to come off as rude. Section LL is where my grandparents are buried and I usually snap a couple hundred photos in and around the cemetery. I just happened to notice that the photo already on the memorial was practically unreadable. No offense to you.

Just wanted to let you know that I've uploaded a much clearer photo than the one you took.

Julia Bartlaga photo
Hi there - You added a headstone photo for my relative, Julia Bartlaga and it is currently on the memorial for her husband, Walter Bartlaga. Would you be able to copy and move that photo to her memorial for me? Her memorial is 41925313. Thank you so much for taking the time to add the photos!

I've seen that you have done some photo requests in Resurrection Cemetery, in Justice, Illinois. I was wondering if you could take some photos for me. Please tell me if this is too much. Their names are:

Anthony Ciezopka 1884-1945
Caroline Ciezopka Golden (golndyn) 1894-1945
Wladyslaw Ciezopka 1922-1923
Anthony Kuska 1879-1942
Victoria Zamas (Kuntel, Knutel, nee Wronczek, Kuska) Zamas was her last married name. 1884-1968

If it is not too much can you take pictures of the surrounding graves of Victoria Zamas, and Anthony Kuska. Also if you want, may you go to the plot where Stanislaw Kania (1878-1950), and his wife Maryanna Koperna (1882-1918) were buried and take pictures of the surrounding graves around them. All of these people have photo requests on them, except for the one's that are around these people's graves. Please tell me if this request is too much. I appreciate the work you volunteers do.

Please email me the pictures of the surrounding graves to my email:
