Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired businessman who enjoys genealogy as a hobby. I find that genealogy and "Find a grave" go hand in hand and its easy to do both at the same time and both are very rewarding.In adding Memorials for those in my family I have added memorials for many non-relatives in hope that it will help others as others have helped me. If I've submitted a relative of yours and you would like it transferred to you, just ask. I live in the Omaha metro area and thats where most of my photos were taken.Researching Bender, Ausdemore,Hittner, German,Ternus, Bockholt, Hatzenbuehler, Kramer, Wickelman and many others. Most of My family came from Germany in the Mid 1800s and settled in the North Eastern Nebraska German farming comunities and spread from there.In my research if I run across a grave of someone in the Military that is Killed in Action they get special attention and i try to find out as much as i can about them and put it on the Memorial. We owe it to these Heros and they should not be forgotten.I authorize anyone to use my photos for any reason."Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you." ~~~Princess Diana

Roy Clarence Adler

Thank you so much for all of your wonderful volunteer work.

I see that you made a memorial for Roy Clarence Adler in 2012, but you did not know where the body was.
Then someone else made a duplicate memorial in 2014.

Unfortunately, when I was working on the Adlers, I found the second memorial rather than yours. I linked in Roy's parents and uploaded his obit on the second one.

I know the protocol is for the original memorial to stand, but because your original was not in a cemetery, is there any chance you would be willing to remove it? I would appreciate it so very much-- it would make things a lot less complicated than my having to redo the links and the photo.

Let me know what you decide, either way, please, so I know what to do about the obit and links.

Thanks so much for everything,
Molly H. 48718706
