Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was thrilled to find this site to further my interest in genealogy . I really enjoy looking through a cemetery looking at the past, wondering who people were. I have had the pleasure to get some sites left in bad shape adopted by classes to clean up. I will walk OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS to find a grave if need be!!
I am attempting to find and photograph every grave of my direct lineage and post them with a tribute. I do this to honor my late mother, Helen, who loved her genealogy and pay homage to my Palatine/English/Dutch/Swiss roots.
I was able to travel to Concord, MA and find the grave of an 8th great grandparent!!
My lines go back to the Crusades with John de Peckham and his
several great grandson John Peckham, an Archbishop of Canterbury. In the 1630's and even before my several back great grandparents were arriving in America, New Haven Newport, Hull, Long Island,Salem- Burdick, Peckham, Skelton, Marsh, Westervelt, all me!!
I think all our DNA helps us form our courage, valor, compassion, willfulness and inner strength[or lack thereof].
Ancestry is a view to who you are, really deep down to "the bone".
All my information is to the best of my knowledge and what records I have had. Any relatives please feel free to contact me.

Bernard Burdick
I'm living in France, not far from Epinal american cemetery and my son wants to adopt the grave of 2 lt Bernard Burdick . I took a picture of him in front a the grave , at the memorial Day when he flowered it at the age of 8. It was in 1999. Now he has finished his studies at the university and will be back home, so he wanted to join the association created in our area ( and like in many places ) to adopt graves from the different cemeteries . He thinks it is a great idea to adopt this one he flowered the first time 15 years ago. I'm a member of this association. to adopt a grave we need to have informations and at least one picture to get the official certificate of adoption and what is interesting is to know more about this soldier who went, like all his brothers in arms, so far from his country and give his life to free France and Europe. so, if you have some informations , I would be so happy to get them. Thank you so much!
