Bio and Links
Bio Photo I give permission to use any picture I have taken for Find a Grave for use for other programs, websites or genealogical purposes. After all..that's why we take the pictures, so people can use them for their families.

I have been working on discovering my dead relatives for over 30 years. Now that I have retired I even have time to spend on new discoveries. I also enjoy going out to local cemeteries to fill photo requests. If I create a page which you would like to manage, just let me know and I'll be happy to transfer it to you.

Sgt. Eugene A Long
Thank you posting this. I just found this site. I am Eugene's niece. I just found this site and I am very thankful to all who volunteer on this site. I am glad to now have a picture of his head stone and see names of relatives I wasn't aware of. Once again thank you. Question who first decided to find Eugene and put his information out there and all his relatives?

Antonio Gumma (137665222)
Hello Mary - in addition to his VA stone, Antonio Gumma's name is also etched on the Gumma monument in section LL of St. Joseph Cemetery. I've added a couple of photos of this monument to his page.

RE: John Taylor 1744-1811
Hi - Did I make a mistake - I have John Taylor as the father of George Washington Taylor. I can go back to the drawing board if this is incorrect. I got most of my information from North American, Family Histories

Let me know what you would like me to do

Vincent Prochniak
I have created a memorial for Vincent Prochniak buried in St. Adalbert's Cemetery. I appreciate you taking the time to search out Vincent and his wife Stella tombstones. Thank-you for posting the picture of Stella tombstone, and when you have time you can now post the picture of Vincent's tombstone. Thank-you for everything you do for Find A Grave.

RE: St Adalbert Cemetery-Harry Guzy
I created the memorial for Virginia, but am over the limit for requests for photos. Will make the request on Mon or Tues when I am able to add more. Thanks!

RE: St Adalbert-Frank Lempa gravesite
I have created the memorials for Katarzyna and Leokada. I will add bios to them this week sometime. Thank you again for the foresight and effort in taking all the headstone pictures.

Guzy and Bejrowski at St Adalbert's
Ahhh Mary ARE a Godsend! And it made me laugh when you said "Then the nice weather went away and it started to rain" Same thing happened to me the last time I was in Chicago, (it's been a few years) but I was at the Italian cemetery in Hillside, not the Polish
Thanks so saved me some research, as I pretty much just got started on this name (Bejrowski) a couple of days ago.....a granddaughter of Mike Bejrowski was married to a Guzy, and that's what got me started. I will add these, and then make the proper requests so you get credit. Thank you sooo much for all you do!
