|Bio and Links|
I have always been interested in family history, asking questions since I was a little girl. I took a genealogy class at church, and that was when my life changed forever. I was introduced to the computer, and the internet.|
I have found people I didn't know. I found out their life stories, some of which really surprised and at times shocked me. I have also found living cousins who share my passion or a better word now is addiction.
I have also met some wonderful friends.
But, with the good comes the bad. I have also met some really mean people too. And, in this wonderful business of searching out and preserving our family history,this makes me sad.
I do want to point out, that I appreciate all of the volunteers who have created these memorials, and the volunteers who take and post photos on this site. As in anything worthwhile, it really does take a village. We cannot do all of this alone.
With that said, I am not interested in having memorials of people I am not in some way related to, or do not know. I only want to manage family, which includes extensions of my family, and a few friends.
If I have a duplicate, it was NOT created on purpose. If I am aware of one, I try to rectify that, and ask for cooperation, not a power struggle over "ownership". To me, that is either silly, or selfish. I also don't need anyone to lecture me. I am an adult. I have reasonable thinking abilities, and I am willing to work with anyone if approached in a respectful, and courteous manner.
I understand the "guidelines" of Find-A-Grave, for direct family lines, and transfers.
I personally feel that family memorials should be willingly and lovingly transferred to family members. We are the ones who truly care about them.
I do not need to manage all of them, but I do want them to be as correct as possible, therefore,I have done a lot of edit requests.
I always leave a flower on their memorials, out of love, respect, and as a reminder that I was there to provide correct information and family links.
My core family names are:
Maternal: Deicken, Hellweg, Walkenhorst, Kemner.
If I can be of help to anyone, please ask.

It has been added
|Kathy Jones||RE: Louis Deicken|
I'm sorry. The explanation is on your edits page. I have added his location and the reason for the flowers. The edits page is located to the right of your messages and profile. Louis is in the community niches, which is like a Potters Field. if you don't like the flowers, I will remove them. I see Jim has shot his type of pix with the actual door to the niches.
|Kathy Townsend||RE: Jessie Richardson|
Glad to share the informtion. My friend was visiting Washelli Cemetery in Seattle, WA looking for some of my family members. She spotted markers near by by family members that had not been uploaded to Find A Grave. I checked Washington State's digital online archives to look up the dates & confirm that it was a match. It is like solving a puzzle, sometimes easy, sometimes hard! : ) I'm just getting started but enjoying the process! Quite a bit to learn.
|Nancy Swanwick||RE: Maude White Hemenway|
I was so thrilled to figure out who "Uncle John and Cousin Maude" are.
|Nancy Swanwick||Maude White Hemenway|
I just added a picture of Maude and her uncle John White which I have had for about a decade and have just now figured out. This was in a packet of "Illinois Austins" that I inherited. Maude's mother Mary Catherine Austin was my greatgrandfather Thomas Jefferson Austin's sister. The back of the picture said "cousin Maude and uncle John" in my grandfather's hand. This picture appears to have been taken around the turn of the last century, and John's death date of 1910 tells me it couldn't be after that.
I would like to use the family picture you have of Mary Catherine, Thomas, Maude and Nellie on my Ancestry.com page if it's okay with you.
