Bio and Links
My mother and Aunt Aileen started working on family history about 30 years ago. I dabbled with my tree and uploaded a file my brother made for my mom about 10 years ago and messed around a little. When my Aunt Aileen passed at 70 my then 85 year old mother didn't really have the mental capabilities to get things on her program or online. I promised mom and my uncle that I would "finish." I know now that there is no finishing. I have almost 4,600 in my tree and find more about my family all of the time. I have met family members not too far removed and have discovered that I am a distant cousin of my husband on both sides of his family.

Since there is no finishing I will push forward as long as I am able. My tree is public on Ancestry in hopes that the research I have done will help those who come after. If anyone finds any mistakes please let me know.

A distant cousin told me about this site. It makes my family history so much more real.

I hope I can help others by snapping photos nearby.

RE: Thank you very much
Hello Allene,

So sorry for the late reply. I've been wanting to do this for some time now. ;-(
Wow! That sounds like fascinating information! So glad to have found you. I have added you as a friend as well, so hopefully we can keep in touch with any new revelations. My family tree in progress on ancestry is at
Have a great week!

Kind regards,

re: RE: Thank you very much
My mother found a map of the Village that my grandfather's family lived. There were quite a few Dilger homes there along with Boehm homes. My cousin I found through Ancestry and then confirmed by DNA has Boehm in her family also. She is a Schimpf. I will work on this when I have time.

RE: Thanks yet another time.
You've got a lot of them there. I missed one, so I will get it on one of my next trips.

What is SSP?
Hi, Allene - SSP is a "local" abbreviation for the city of South Saint Paul. Sorry for the confusion! -Heather

RE: Thank you very much
You're most welcome, Allene! I have relations to Boehms, but I could not locate any Dilger or Schimpfs in my family of yet anyway! ;-) I couldn't find any Brewer or Rauhs either. Sorry I couldn't help you. Let me know if you are looking to share any info on Boehms.

Happy New Year to you!

Kind regards,

re: Thank you very much
Thank you for transferring Rose Dilger's grave to me. Just a question. My DNA results on Ancestry show some very close Boehm matches to me.

Do you happen to know how I am related to them? My two major family names are Dilger and Schimpf.

RE: Thanks again Brian
You're welcome Allene. I'm sure I will be getting more for you next year. Still no snow here but I'm sure it will be coming soon.

Schimpf Family Graves in SSP
Hi, Allene - Happy to help with pictures of your family members. Unfortunately, only 4 graves are marked, but I added pics to Fred & Christine; and created a couple of new records, too. I will attempt to contact someone for more information about the "missing" graves. Also, If you want records transferred to you, let me know.

P.S. Your bio says: "[Find A Grave] makes my family history so much more real." That's exactly how I felt when I discovered this Web site! I've started (photo) documenting entire cemeteries in hopes of helping others gain the same excitement and appreciation.

Thanks for the work you do here!

RE: Transfer please
Allene, I have added hundreds of photo's within the last week or so and I am very glad that one of them was of your cousin and I would be pleased to transfer it to you (if it is mine to transfer) but you must tell me who to transfer and to whom!

I suspect that the memorial does not belong to me and you must ask the memorial manager. To ask for a transfer go to your cousins memorial page, click on the edit tab, click on "select any other correction or addition" and request a transfer there.

Find A Grave is a truly great companion to the other genealogy sites available for those of us interested in family history.

Best wishes,
