Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been in genealogy a short time, and find it very interesting. I am trying to find more details and more names, and the searching is half the fun! (Kinda like putting together a Jigsaw Puzzle.) Some of the surnames I am interested in are Williams, Moran, Grove, Schmedel, Otto, Bender, Strzyzewski, Cesarz, Christensen, Langendorf, Dorfmeister,(and countless others).

I have my tree started at Please feel free to stop over and say hello, and if you would like to share any tips, and family branches, that would be great! I would love to hear from you.

I wanted to thank everyone for adding virtual flowers to all my friends, family, and interments, (even the family and friends that I did not add, but are here). I have been trying to return the good gesture, but if I haven't gotten to some or all of your interments, please be patient. I think it's a wonderful thing to give flowers to someone, even if it's virtually!

Here is the link to my Best Friend, and Grandmother:

RE RE Danish Kin
Hi Dawn.
Yuland is most likely Jutland, the peninsula bounded by Germany to the south and the North Sea to the west. There were well over a hundred Christensens born every year. The ending "son" is not the usual Danish spelling. "Son" is more Swedish or Norwegen. Christensen is a patronimic name, not a proper surname. It means son of Christen. His Father's first name would be Christen, but the last name could be something else. The key to Danish genealogy is finding one person's name and where (the parish) they lived. The Danes kept very complete records, not the caos we have in USA. Goog luck, Jim

Danish Kin
Hi Dawn, I see you have an Andrew Christensen of Denmark listed. He does not seem to be related to me. Do you know where in Denmark he immigrated from? Do you know when? I lived 2 years in DK and did a lot of research at their archives. I returned to USA in 1998 and do on-line research into the Danish archives. The Danes are super organized, so research is fairly easy. But you need to know from which parish your Dane came from. If I can be any help, just ask. Jim Sindberg

Oak Hill Cemetery

I am trying to clear up some Memorial at OHC and found (2) for Wilhelmine Wendt, #15578978 (Sep 01, 2006) and #15570128 (Aug 31, 2006). Same dates.

I am referring to memorial # 15578687, I believe it should be deleted.
Added by tango13 on Jul 02, 2015 7:51 AM
Dawn, I believe this is a duplicate of memorial # 32418143 due to the misspelling of the last name.

Did you ever get the information about my grandmother Roxie Virginia Owens Brown that you were asking about? I am happy to share anything I have with you.

John Mattise / Miller Cem
Hi Dawn,

I saw your request for a photo of John's marker in Miller Cemetery. I believe the record is incorrect. John's wife Florence is there, but he isn't. There's another memorial for John (105808657) that has him in St Cyril Cemetery in Peckville. Perhaps you could work with the owner of that memorial to consolidate and delete one of the entries?
