Bio Photo Posting mostly my own direct lineage, And love the hunt for all relatives of mine. I've been researching for many years and have found it like a great history book that I can't put down. Hope anything that you find that I post or respond to helps you find your Loved Ones.

Any photos that I post to findagrave are free to use in any genealogy program etc. that you may wish to use them in. Please be respectful enough to credit my efforts, as I would be to yours.

I have linked John with his second wife. It is an interesting story and one that substantiates that we genealogists are not bothered when we find relatives with characteristics that some might like to reveal. For my part I want to know all about them "warts and all."

Ben, I would love to have a copy of my grandmother's death & birth certificates. Please let me know how to find them or if possible to send me a copy.
Thank you, Becky

Thanks Ben for documenting our family. Wanted to correct my Dad's name - should be Charles Harry Retkofsky (not Henry). Thanks again. Also was wondering if you knew where Arthur's first wife was buried.

Green Rest Cemetery.
Someone has made a photo request for Memorial# 85802488, Clara York (Dow?) The only stone we have found is Dwight and Kathleen York in Green Lawn Rest Cemetery - Clinton, Me. Would you happen to know the lot/plot location? Please leave us a message as we removed our email address. Thank you. :)

RE: Carl Retcofsky
Hi Ben, Thanks for your quick response. I'm not related to Carl but to his second wife Wilhelmina (Minnie). Minnie would have been my 4X Great Aunt. Carl's obit may have some useful info so if you have it I'd like to see it. Just let me know what I need to do. Thanks, Michael.

Hi, Are you related to Carl Retkofsky? If so, was he married twice, once to Ella Nora and then Minnie?
Thanks, Mike.
