Bio and Links
Bio Photo Updated: 14 Apr 2014

GOALS: My goals are to update my family tree and to link as many family members together on Find A Grave as possible.

E-MAILS: Currently working on 25 Feb 2014 & newer. Please don't be offended if I haven't replied. I will get to you eventually. I prefer to work them in the order they were received, with some exceptions.

ABOUT ME: We lived in White Lake, Aurora, SD, USA when I was born. I currently live in Eastern Kansas. I have been doing genealogy since about 1995. My lineage is (as of this writing) 100% German per the information I have gathered in my family tree. I purchased a DNA Kit from but, have not taken it yet. I believe that some of my family were Palatines who emigrated to Ireland and eventually came to America and others were part of the large migration of Germans from Russia (Odessa region on the Black Sea). Much of my family came through the Great Lakes with some going to Canada and most others going to WI, USA (many in Dane County, WI, USA) and then on to SD, USA, most of them settled in or near the Parkston, Hutchinson, SD, USA area.

CURRENTLY WORKING ON: The cemeteries and families who settled in the Parkston, Hutchinson, SD, USA and surrounding areas.

BLOOD LINES IN MY TREE INCLUDE: Aeiler/Ayler/Eiler, Badré/Badri, Becker, Beilstein, Bourg, Buckholtz, Cremans, Daescher, Dorsfeidts, Endres, Esser, Fischer, Geraths, Gerten, Guelden, Hambloch, Hartmann, Hensel, Hohn, Jung, Kannengiesser, Klein, Koltes, Koth, Kurtenbach, Lachmund, Leder, Leischner, Leoln, Liesch, Linnartz, Lkirchen, Luy, Mick/Mück/Mük, Mueller, Nitska, Pauli, Riethmuller, Scheiffart, Schieder, Schieffers, Schumacher, Sidon, Stockhausen, Weiland, Welters, Wermers, Wiedenfeld, Wirtz & Villmow to name a few.

OTHER WEB SITES: I have a U.S. subscription to, and a public family tree on (15,400+ people so far) and also occasionally upload my tree to RootsWeb. By the way, RootsWeb gives you the ability to see your family in Ahnentafel format which is visually much easier to read and see how your family is connected!

TRANSFERS: If you would like a Find A Grave Memorial which I manage transferred to you, please let me know by clicking on the "Edit" button and then "Suggest any other correction or addition" for that Memorial and provide your relationship to that individual. If the person is in my tree and not a direct blood relative of yours, I prefer to retain management of the Memorial as it makes it easier for me to make updates and link family members.

EDITS/UPDATES: Please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial rather than post a public message on my Profile page. If you wish to correspond, please utilize my e-mail address on my Profile page.

PHOTOS: PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE THE PHOTOS I HAVE TAKEN AND UPLOADED! They are for the families of the departed. If you upload a photo to any of the Memorials I manage that contains any information missing from the Memorial, please let me know via the "Edit" button on that Memorial so that I may update the information.

A BIG "Thank You!" to all those willing Find A Grave volunteer members for working with me to accomplish our goals, and happy hunting!

I transferred the two Willman memorials you requested. Sorry it took me so long! We're finishing up a house build and I don't think I have looked at my email in weeks!

Leonard & Delores.Weber requests...
Hi Bill:
I claimed your requests for Leonard &
Delores (Weber) @ Black Hills National Cemetery
in Sturgis,S.D.

Leonard passed away on 15 Jan,2014 so therefore,the stone for Delores has been removed so his information can be added to it.I do however have pictures of the temporary marker that has been placed until the stone has been completed.
If you'd like,I will post the temporary marker for you & keep an eye out for the permanent stone for you & add it to both of their memorials as soon as it is available(no need to put in another request)

Please let me know what you'd feel is best to do in a situation such as this...

~ Beth ~

P.S. If you are interested,I'd be more then happy to transfer Leonard to you as he is not a relative of mine.I add memorials for Veterans & their families that are being laid to rest @
Black Hills National Cemetery as my way of saying
