Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family lines for over 20 years and the thrill hasn't diminished.
I enjoy taking pics at the cemeterys and submitting them in the hopes that someone will gain more family history and also because so many of the tombstones are fading or have broken thru the years. If any descendant objects to their ancestor being memorialized, please let me know and I'll remove the memorial.

I would like to give away every non-related memorial to people who have more information to add, so don't hesitate to ask; in your request, please include the memorial number (or a link to it) and your own Find-a-Grave member number.

I'm a photo rescuer - I often find old photos at flea markets and antique shops for a dollar or two with information written on the back of them. I try to find a family researcher to give the photo to or I will look for their findagrave site to add the picture to. If you see a photo and do not beleive that it belongs with the site or person please let me know to remove it. I add the photos to be shared.I can't guarantee who they are but can only go by what someone has taken the time to write on them, so if its not correct information I hope someone will let me know. I like to rescue them from being lost or destroyed, in the hopes that someday someone will find one my of lost photos.

FAMILY NAMES that my husband and I are researching: Livingston,Menke, Wiebler,Rempe,Groene, Rutledge,Bryant, Shawgo, McNew, Portlock, Tischbein, Rankin, Herd, Bailey.

RE: Nieland - updates
OK, that is good to know.
Yes, it is a challenge to remember to check the edit box once in a while. I heard they are working on trying to figure a way to add that option to Find A Grave so when someone sends an edit that you get a notice email so then you know for sure you have one and don't have to keep checking your profile page all the time to see. As it is now it is like a secret that you have an edit.
Anyway, thanks for letting me know. Now we know the answer to my question.

John J Nieland
Hi again,
I would imagine you know about the new auto edit system on Find A Grave now?
I sent you a bunch of edits yesterday, one being for John J Nieland. This was before you transferred him to me. I wonder if you could push your "magic button" to process those edits or if it is too late now and now that you transferred him to me maybe the edits will not go through now??
It would be interesting to find out an answer to that question and this will be an opportunity to check it out and see.
Let me know, ok?

RE: Haefs vs Hoefs
Thank you very much. That was nice of you.
Yes, I agree, pictures are wonderful. I don't stop my researching enough to do that. I have a bunch of old pics I could add. Just need to take the time to do it.

RE: Herman Haefs vs Hoefs
Oh, it would be nice to have the transfer. It would make them easier to keep on top of adding details to them as I am studying them. If you want them back sometime or someone else wants them I will do that.
It would be nice to have John and Anna Nieland too. Anna was a Hoefs/Haefs.
I will send transfer requests on each of them to make it easier for you.

Herman Haefs
I have not pestered you for quite a while. Good thing right? :-]
I am hacking away on another limb off of my little brother's wife's tree with Nieland's and Vinyard's and others grafted into it. Why stay close to the trunk when you can go wayyyy out on a limb and live dangerously, right?!
One of them married a Hoefs, BUT, you have them listed on Find A Grave as Haefs. It is Haefs on the gravestone but why is it Hoefs everywhere else you look? Do you think maybe the gravestone is wrong? That is what I think.
They are in every single last one of the censuses as Hoefs, not Haefs.
Herman and his wife are both in the State of Oregon death index as Hoefs, not Haefs.
I have been looking for the kids. Most of them got left in WI and lived out their lives there.
I found a Wisconsin death index and Herman's son August is in it and he died with the name of Hoefs, not Haefs. Hmmmmm. Are you starting to get the picture here? :-]
At the very least, I think a note should be added to Herman and his wife's page that the one and only place you can find their name spelled Haefs is on their gravestone.
What 'ya think?

sophia matson and children
thank you for the pictures of Sophia and her children. I am a descendent of the Matson. When her husband died she moved westward and we lost track of her family. We don't have any pictures so were glad for you input. Many thanks.Alice
