|I am from western Pa. and for the past 15 years have been researching the 1961 crash which killed the usa skating team . I also research genealogy and I know how useful a database like find a grave can be. If anyone has any info on the 1961 team I would appreciate any info you can provide-Thanks!|

Hi Stephanie- Someone had requested images of the Scholdans to be included in their memorials, which I uploaded today. You may want to rearrange the images so their portraits are at the top of the memorial. Best, Matt

I received a public message from Noel in AZ about how I got Rhode Lee's picture of her grave marker. Remember, her grave was left unmarked for over 40 years....He told me that you have done research on the crash and to contact you..
Former competive skater in New York....allowed to train with 84 & 88 Olympic and world teams. My coach skated with an knew all of the world team skaters....everyone wanted her not to retire from skating and would have been on the plane. She was to have won the 1958 Natioals Senior title...competition was stopped since she was about to beat Carol Heiss in figures...then she got all second placements...at the paris world's (she was the reigning US junior champion) she placed 9th after skating with pnemonia and high fever...was the first woman to do a double lutz at worlds. she had a triple salchow under her belt too. At the farewell dinner, the french judge gave a toast to the 1959 (next year's) world champion...was Carol Wanek....Carol Heiss and Peirre Brunet (Wanek's coach too) faces turned red...
If she didn't retire, would have been killed.

Find A Grave had already put up a memorial for him. Thought I'd let you know so you could remove yours.

Yes I did see them. What's funny is I am pretty sure that film was shot very near where we live. I could be wrong, but they appear to be on old Rt 40 long before that section became part of I70.
I wish I had seen that home movie when I was a teenager. It would have allowed me to see my parents as someone just like myself instead of authority figures.
I also would like you to know that your grandfather's drive and determination set an example for me that I followed all of my adult life. If it weren't for him, I doubt I'd be where I am now.
