Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've always been interested in family history and genealogy, and doing a family history project where I was able to trace my grandmother's family back to 1600's Germany really fueled it.

Many of my memorials are for non-relative's graves that I photograph while walking through cemeteries. Please let me know if you would like any transferred to you.


The following text comes from "The Braidwood Story" which was published in 1957 and "is dedicated to the Pioneers of Braidwood, Illinois, to those who later promoted the city's welfare and to the interested generations that follow."

"HONZIK

Joseph Honzik and wife came from Bohemia to America and Braidwood in 1877. He was employed in the mines until his retirement. They were the parents of a
large family, including the following boys: Jacob, Joseph, Anthony and Frank.

The widow survives and still lives here (1956), as do Joseph and Anthony of Chicago, who have summer homes here.

Joseph L., the youngest son, is an artist, who prepared the several pen and ink drawings that appear in the book."

Although this information has a few errors (the boys were named Joseph, Anthony, William, Frank, and George,) the book provide a treasured account of daily life and history in my grandfather Frank Honzik's hometown of Braidwood, Illinois.

Please visit the memorials I created for my grandfather and my cat.

RE: Dahms
THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY. YES, ELISE DAHMS IS THE SAME PERSON AS ELIZABETH DAHMS. I JUST HAVE THE WRONG BIRTH YEAR. SHE HAD A SON NAMED ARTHUR AUGUST DAHMS
(15 JAN 1895)- (JANUARY 1971). HER HUSBAND WAS HERMAN PETER DAHMS (28 MARCH 1865)- (3 JANUARY 1948). YOUR HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATE. YOU DID A GREAT JOB. IN THE END, I WOULD LIKE TOMBSTONE PICTURES OF THESE DAHMS. THERE WAS ANOTHER SON OF ELISE: ELMER ERNEST DAHMS AND HIS WIFE HILDAGARDE.
THANKS
MIKE

RE: Janecek
Thanks for letting me know. I removed the photo from Rose's. Unfortunately I think I deleted her photo. If you do want a close up of her marker I can put it on my list to back and take it. Please let me know. Thanks. bhd

Thanks
Thanks for the photo. Unfortunately this Herman Cohen doesn't match with the age of my wife's great great grandfather. I'll have to keep looking. Appreciate the effort thought.

Re: Muriel Camras
Thanks for posting the grave photos for Sidney and Muriel. My source for Muriel's burial location was from her death certificate cemetery entry. The plot shown is a section in Oak Woods Cemetery. Can hardly wait for all the snow to melt, and be able to visit cemeteries again to verify details.
