Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi all. I've had an interest in family history since I was very young. Following my grandfather's death in 1994, my aunt gave me some of his old records, including a baptismal certificate that was written in Polish. It was then that I began doing some serious research into my Borowski, Schorer, De Lille, and Day family lines. I feel very strongly about remembering and paying tribute to those who have gone before.

Please take a moment to visit my unforgettable mother:

Marie Constance De Lille Burke

My beloved brother:

Richard Michael "Rick" Burke

My grandparents:

Henry De Lille
Elise "Elsie" Day De Lille
John Anthony Borowski
Mildred Mary Schorer Borowski Bowen,

A sincere thank you goes out to all the kind souls who leave flowers and messages on the memorials I've posted here, and also to the many wonderful people who are so willing to voluntarily post photos of my loved ones' headstones. It truly means more than I could ever say.

Jack & Lenora Murton Memorial# 74197583 & 74197545
Hello James,
I'm doing a photo project in the Lincoln Memorial Park mausoleum in Portland, Oregon. I took a photo of the crypts for Jack & Lenora Murton, and the Carnation Corridor where their remains were placed. I've uploaded those photos to the memorial pages for them. If you have photos you want to upload, or don't like those I've uploaded, please contact me and I will remove mine.

William Eugene Landers (#142866127

I was just notified by Kathleen B (#46845386) that your William Eugene Landers (59707535) and my Gene Landers (142866127) are duplicates. Since your Landers was entered before mine, I believe mine should be merged with yours.
If you do not wish this, would you please transfer him to me so I may merge their info into one memorial. I believe not matter which way we accomplish this your memorial# should be retained since it was entered first with you as the original contributor and me as the current caretaker.
The main thing they should be merged so there will be only one record.

Thank you!
I appreciate you taking the photo's of James & Agnes Walsh for me, would've loved more info on the tombstones though, but that's okay.
