Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in my family history since I was a teenager, but have only actively starting doing my own research in the last few years.

In my family, the names I am primarily researching include: Bailey, Beals, Brown, Doudican, Foley, Gerstenberger, Harmer, Hartman, and Joslin,

In my wife's family, the names I am primarily researching include: DeBoer, De Velder, Ligtenberg, Maas, Nydam, and Van Zee.

Please email me (include Find-a-Grave in the subject) with any corrections or additional information for entries I have made. I am happy to share any pictures or data I've gathered. My Yahoo email ID is "jgerstenberger" (just add "" to the ID).

Flaska family
I noticed that you have several memorials for the Flaska family in the Cleveland Township Cemetery in Leelanau County. My great-great-grandfather Michael Rice was a brother to Tillie (King) Flaska's mother Theresa (Rice) King. Did not know if you were a relation to the Flaska's or not as I am trying to find information on Delbert and Tillie's family. Thank you

Add a Link to a memorial
Can you add a spouse link to Pearl Menning Brink's memorial. The link is for her husband Raymond Brink. Thanks. Here is the link:

Amenzo Nestel #41451697
In May 1949, the "Historical Wyoming" published a reading of the graves in Doty Hill Cemetery. The inscription noted that he was the two year old son of Sylvenus and Harriett Nestel.

RE: Arjaantje Sandifort DeBoer
That would be great, and I would appreciate it (and the headstone picture). Do you have her husband's memorial as well, or does it belong to someone else?

Arjaantje Sandifort DeBoer
I just transferred Arjaantje to Harrison Cemetery because I learned she was in the wrong cemetery. Now I see that you already have a memorial for her. Please look at the information under #133038847 and see if you would include in yours, since I need to deleted the memorial I made.

Find A Grave Memorial# 15090440
I can fill in a blank for you related to Find A Grave Memorial# 15090440 for Jogchum Jans Maas and Grietje Jaspers Visser.

Comments state: Married first Grietje Jaspers Visser in 1870 and father of ? and Jinke Maas.
Jinke is my great grandmother, Jennie Maas.

My grandmother's handwritten notes about her mother's family showed she had half brothers: John, Harry, and William; half sisters: Katie (Trijntje), Maggie (Grietche), Winnie (Wyniah, Annie (Antje) and Lizzie (Loltje), and step siblings, John and Anna Veenstra/Feenstra.
Everything you have for the find-a-grave memorials related to this family matches what I have in my Family Tree.

Jennie is buried with her husband Cornelius J Van Geest at Valley View Cemetery, in Sioux County, IA. Is there a way to link my grandmother's information to her father - Jogchum Jans Maas?

Thanks, Lee Julian
