RE: Lanham photo
Thank you - I, too, vacationed in Virginia (for 1 1/2 days) - it's beautiful out there, isn't it?

RE: Wayne Lanham
When you look at the listing of the burials in the cemetery, it shows an icon after the persons name if there is a photo on the memorial. When that photo is of the gravestone the icon is a little tombstone, when it is a photo of the person the icon is a small picture frame. This also determines where the memorial shows up if you search by "Names with no grave photo" - in this case, because you placed a picture which is recognized as a gravestone photo, the memorial will not show up in that search. When you enter the photo for the memorial there is a drop-down box just above the box where you browse or enter the file name you are adding - your choices for type of photo are: Grave, Person, Family or Other. In this case you should choose "Person", not the default choice of grave. Unfortunately, I think the only way to correct this is to delete the photo and start over. If you have further questions please let me know!

RE: Hayhurst Family

The phone number would be terrific. I would just reach out, introduce myself and if he or anyone in his family are interested in the family history, would share information with them.

Thank you again and good luck.

RE: Heilig family corrections

Thank you for the information. Unfortunately, by the time I was able to locate the Fred Heilig family, Doris had already passed away. She was my father's 2nd cousin. I am now in touch with her sister Shirley and her family.

I will reach out to Russ Marti and see if he has any information about the possible connections between the Heilig families.

Good luck with your continued research and let me know if there is any way in which I may be of assistance.

Heilig family corrections

Thank you for the additional information on my cousins, Fred and Irene Heilig. it is appreciated. I noticed that you also have two other memorials for Heiligs, both in Bond County. To my knowledge they are not related to me or to Fred and Irene. If you have any additional information, I would appreciate it.

Thank you,
C Russell

RE: Donald Kubicek
You're Welcome Jim,

Again I am glad that I could fill your request. I don't know if I will get to LITOMYSL this season? I have some family issues at the moment that are taking up my spare time... Hope that you enjoy your trip to Owatonna in October.
