Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi all. I've had an interest in family history since I was very young. Following my grandfather's death in 1994, my aunt gave me some of his old records, including a baptismal certificate that was written in Polish. It was then that I began doing some serious research into my Borowski, Schorer, De Lille, and Day family lines. I feel very strongly about remembering and paying tribute to those who have gone before.

Please take a moment to visit my unforgettable mother:

Marie Constance De Lille Burke

My beloved brother:

Richard Michael "Rick" Burke

My grandparents:

Henry De Lille
Elise "Elsie" Day De Lille
John Anthony Borowski
Mildred Mary Schorer Borowski Bowen,

A sincere thank you goes out to all the kind souls who leave flowers and messages on the memorials I've posted here, and also to the many wonderful people who are so willing to voluntarily post photos of my loved ones' headstones. It truly means more than I could ever say.

Hello, Mr. Burke,
Would it be OK for me to include your photo of Lt. Williams grave in a short article about him which will be a Memorial Day piece for the 142nd Fighter Wing of the Oregon Air National Guard? The wing would post it on their public website, at:

Of course we would be happy to credit it to you. No profit or money is involved in this memorial effort, to let you know.

Lt. John T. Quillin, Memorial# 77088145
Hello James,
I'm doing a photo project in the mausoleum at Lincoln Memorial Park, Portland, Oregon. I found and photographed the crypt for Lt. John T. Quillin, and have uploaded them to the memorial page you created. If you have photos you want to load, or if you don't like any or all those I've uploaded, please contact me and I'll remove them.

Its funny that my wife's maiden name is BURKE, she is Scottish.

And had a brother named James Burke.
