Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been looking for more family members.
My Mom started finding family years ago.
Now it's my turn. :^)
Most of the memorials I put on here, are of people I don't know. It's away of honoring the people who have passed on.

Hi Richard,

I think you have a connection to Oswald Swanson.

So I want to let you know that I added a photo on his memorial:

The caption contains a link to his naturalization documents, in case you haven't seen them.

I have no connection to Oswald. I just find things online and pass them on :)

RE: June Bens and Keith Kerber
Thanks Richard,
I was born June 1964 at Roseland Hospital on the south side.
My parents are both buried at Mt. Greenwood Cemetery on 111th street. (My uncles funeral home is at 95th and Kedzie) I hope to move back some day to Chicago, after almost 20 years in Dallas I am really over the hot summers and humidity.

RE: June Bens and Keith Kerber
I just looked at the memorial you created for Charles and I am now wondering if that is his dad, he never really talked about him.
I am going to have to do some on line searching to see, if he turns out to be his dad, I will link them.
Have a great holiday weekend
and Thank you so much for the picture of his head stone (is his and Junes graves in the same section as you listed for Charles? If so I will add that section name.)

RE: June Bens and Keith Kerber
Thank you so much, yes that is Keith.
Charles maybe his biological dad (June remarried (Hank, last I heard Hank was still alive but that has been several years ago).
I am also trying to remember Keith's brother name, his health wasn't good in the late 1980's when I last saw him when he came to visit in St. Louis.
