We have been on a search to find out about our family since about 1990.Along with my Brother Bruce we are still doing research today. Names such as Martz,Baer,Bradley,Childs,Landon,Goodwin and so many more. This site has given me the chance to be able to remember those Dear Family members by creating Memorial pages for them. I only hope that more of my Family will check their pages to see how we are all connected together. Thank you to all of you who feel the same way as I do and think it's important to keep those memories alive. God Bless You All.
RE: Start Family I am not on Ancestry as far as sharing my research. Always willing to answer questions via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I have researched almost all the START family in the Kent, Ottawa, Muskegon county area going back to the mid 1860's and have made sure that most of the graves are on the Find A Grave site with family hyperlinks and photographs. Slagter family was limited to parents of Alice Slagter Start and Lucy Slagter Start (sisters), their parents, siblings and their families. I know there were a couple of Martin Slagters in this family with one that recently died this month. Feel free to share my email address with other researchers. I am also a volunteer photographer for Find A Grave and a member and volunteer researcher for Western Michigan Genealogy Society.
RE: Start Family Are you referring to Julia Start, daughter of Gerrit and Lucy (Slagter) Start, buried in the Grandville Cemetery. Gerrit was my father's uncle. I have done a lot of research on that branch of the Slagter family. Do you have any specific questions?
RE: Steve Beregi Hi, Cheryl, I did some more research into the local marriage, births and deaths records and found some interesting things. There are some inconsistencies, which is not uncommon with records from those days.
There is no record of Steven's marriage.
According to birth records, Steven and a woman named Sara Gaczi had a daughter named Mary Beregi on December 1, 1907. (Corrected in 1941 from January 16, 1908)
According to death records, a 4-year-old Mary Beregi died. No parents are listed. The cause of death was meningitis. Date of death was March 25, 1907.
The headstone for Mariska Beregi is inscribed with Mariska Beregi / 1902-1907.
Beregi family memorials Hi Cheryl, I have posted a picture for you on the Istvan Beregi memorial site. While searching cemetery records, I also found, as you can see from the photo, he had a wife Julia. Something I found that was interesting was the name Mariska Beregi, dates 1902-1907; a simple stone, probably hand made, and in an old section which contains a large number of child graves. I have not researched if this could have been Istvan and Julia's daughter, but it seems plausible. I will let you know what I find out.
In any case, and, if you would like, could you create Find a Grave memorials for Julia and Mariska?
Thank you, Brad p.s. These connections are why I am a photo volunteer. Thanks for he opportunity!
RE: John TRUEX Sorry for not contacting you sooner, but I have not looked at my messages for a long time. You may use the photo for John Truex. If you are a relative, I can transfer the memorial to you. Send any message to the following:email@example.com.
RE: Pohlman Family Cheryl, I had to go to the Walker city hall to get the list of persons buried in Brooklawn cemetery. I have many relatives buried there also and could not find the info I needed. But I work in Walker so I talked to the clerk. If I can help with your research I would be happy to do so. Larry
