Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of Northern Virginia, having lived in Fairfax County and Loudoun County my whole life. I became interested in researching my family history after my mom passed in 1995 and my dad in 2004, both from cancer.

If I have created a memorial for someone close to you, please let me know and I'd be happy to transfer them to you as long as they are no relation to me. Please don't hesitate to ask.

If I have added a photo to a memorial and you would like additional photos, neighboring stones, better quality or close up, just let me know and I will try to help. Feel free to use any photos of headstones that I have taken for your own use in family trees, etc.; no need to give me credit.

I add as much information to a memorial as I can find; not just what is inscribed on the headstone. I will use various genealogical sources to research family links, middle name, maiden name, nickname & full dates and places of birth and death. This information can prove to be invaluable to someone who is searching for a loved one.

Surnames on my dad's side: CLOBUS/KLOBUS and NOLL from Germany and Pennsylvania, CROUP/CROOP of Allegheny Co. and Butler Co., PA and in FL and on my mom's side: ENTZIAN and MAIER/MAYR of MD and WI and MAYERLEN/MAIERLEN. Other family surnames: MARBURGER, GLOCK, SISTEK, GRUNTZ....all of Allegheny Co. or Butler Co., PA.

Hi Diane,

I sent a couple of edits for Anna, and would you also move her to Beth Hamedrash Hagodal Cemetery with her husband Isaac.

Thank you!
I haven't visited this site in quite some time and am honored that you added a picture for my son. His death anniversary is Friday, 02 December.

God bless you and thank you.

RE: Dr. Nathan Ashinsky
Hi Diane,

I am now knee deep in Beth Jacob Cemetery West Mifflin, I think this part of my project will keep me busy for a good part of the winter, still hoping to get access to the cemetery in the spring for photo's.

I would like you to transfer Nathan to me at this time, I'll also be making many connections on the Ashinsly family.

RE: Dr. Nathan Ashinsky
Hello Diane,

I have the Aaron and Pearl Ashinsky memorials entered and am now checking on having the grave marker photos added, I'll send an edit to you to add the parents to Nathan.

I do not need a transfer, but will transfer the parents if you if you want. Rabbi Ashinsky was the founder of the Jewish Home for the Aged in Pittsburgh and my dad worked there mid to late 50's just before his death.

Sending you an edit now and will request a photo for Nathan.

RE: Sistek/Sistik and Kundman photos
Thanks for letting me know about the mix up.

I did delete the photo off of Anna Joan Sistek and added the correct tombstone picture.

Sandra M. Sistik has the tombstone of Joseph and Catherine Kundman because Sandra is on the bottom of the stone, by the grass. I also put up a zoomed shot .

Also I did add Joseph & Catherine Kundman memorials and tombstone picture

Thanks again

RE: James Fontaine Horton
No, Thanks - He isn't close family: 5th cousin 3x removed :)
My interest in him is that 'He is the 8th Great Grandson of Rev. Jacque 'James' Fontaine (1658-1723'.
Happy Hunting!

RE: Louis Y S Mehringer
Thank you so much, Diane, for transferring management of Louis Mehringer's memorial, and for all the work you do for this site!

Louis Y S Mehringer
Hello, Diane,
Do you know of any further information regarding Louis Y S Mehringer, buried at the Birmingham (Zimmerman) Cemetery in Pittsburgh? I have requested to link him to both Simon Mehringer and Sophia Glock Mehringer, his parents, and my great-grandparents. I was aware of his brother William, who died at the age of 3, but was not aware of Louis until today. Would you happen to know if there is a grave marker at the cemetery? There is not, to my knowledge, one for either William, his brother, or Sophia Glock Mehringer, his mother. Thank you for all your hard work!
