Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family tree since 1999. The primary branches are PODBOY/PODBOJ, ROK, PECARO/PECORARO, BORRIS, and SCHULTZ/SCHUBELTOWSKI. I love locating family members and reconnecting with the past.

Amazing similarities exist between humans of different races, colors and beliefs. The similarities that join us far outweigh the differences that separate us. There is unity within our diversity.

My objectives on Findagrave are to link family members, add obits or biographies, provide grave or crypt locations and -- with the assistance of countless volunteers (my angels!) -- include photos of final resting places. I strive for quality, not quantity.

Up until the summer of 2014, I tried to visit each memorial I created (plus others that related to them in some way) on birth and death dates to commemorate the event. It was my honor and privilege to do so. Unfortunately, life stepped into the mix and I could no longer devote the time it took to keep up with the task. Perhaps one day I can resume the practice.

If you find any errors or have additional information (dates or places, etc.), please let me know. And if you have photos of any of the people remembered on these pages, feel free to upload them.

Re: Mary Virginia Cushing 1915-1915
Patti, I transferred your three requests for the Cushing/McPartlin family. I double-checked the memorials to update w/ additional info (via and discovered John L & Mary Adelaide (McPartlin) Cushing had another daughter, Mary Virginia Cushing who was b on Jan 25 1915 and passed away Jan 26 1915. She is buried at Mt Olivet. If you'd like to create a memorial, go to familysearch to get more info/source.

RE: Mary J. Stuewe
Your welcome :) glad I can help!! Did you create the memorial of Maria Milne and possibly her daughter Angela Hardy... I still have the picture.

Thats great! I actually joined ancestry since last we spoke and have been able to come by most of that information from their records. Also, I think someone from a genealogy group on facebook uncovered my great great grandparents as well if you're interested.

Essa's father was possibly Bousada Saad and his mother was Houlah Battah (1855-1941). Houlah was listed on a census report having lived with Essa, and they were both also listed on a cook county death record on FamilySearch.

Hi Patti,
Sorry for the confusion, I misread that you posted the grave stone image.

How do you known Shirley? She was my grandmother. Thank you for posting and keeping up with their grave stones and information, it means a lot.

Theodore N Saad
Hi, I'm just curious, do you only post people you have a relation to or have you just uploaded images and data for anyone? I ask because you uploaded the grave stone for my grandfather and I'm trying to find more info on his family. Theodore N Saad (1918-1969), dundee township cemetary east.

Either way, if you happen to have further info on Ted and his family Id really appreciate hearing back.

Re: 127557930
Florence Zielinski (127557930) is my aunt, would you transfer maintenance of her site to me? I've added most of her family and am doing genealogy research for my family and have more to add. Thank you.
