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

RE: Lloyd Thiel
How wonderful of you. Thank you. I do have the index and there are 11 Thiels listed in Seneca. Are you interested? I will check as I add these and thank you again for the good work.

Lloyd Thiel
Loren, I just looked at my Seneca list and see you are looking for Thiel. I have none of the pics named yet, but I do have the Cemetery Index. Any others while I am in there?

Hey Loren ....
At times, of course, I run across soldier's who "Gave Their All" from Nebraska.

Typically, since I'm not working on Nebraska as a State, I transfer them back to CWGC/ABMC instead of keeping them.

Would you like me to transfer them to you instead since you have an interest in Nebraska??

Let me know my friend,

I will try to get a better photo sometime for this memorial. The plaque was covered with snow and dirt so it needs to rain!! I did the best I could cleaning it.
