Bio and Links
I love photography so please don't mind me if I add pictures for a "more scenic" or "more complete" picture of headstones / cemeteries.

I'm retired military and don't need some people's drama. I'm not about numbers - you can NOT take memorials with you when you too become a memorial. I'm about documenting history and documenting what I SEE, so I am NOT an obituary chaser as many people appear to be.

** Remember that a LOT of the online databases prior to 2000 are NOT always correct and until you've WALKED the cemetery and have the picture to prove it - don't trust what you read from someone that hasn't. I am not an "obituary chaser", if I have created a memorial it is because I have walked the cemetery and will eventually post a photo to go with them OR they are family/friends.

Feel free to borrow pictures, I only ask that you give credit where it's due.

Remember FAG sets GUIDELINES not LAWS, but to copy and post obituaries AND death certificates: falls under copyright laws.

RE: Fisanich
Thank you for writing back! I do know about the family. I visited a few years ago when they held the 100 year anniversary of the Church. I met with several grandson's of Helena/Elena/Olena. These relatives I found them they were the lost tribe of our family. Before WW1 4 brothers (could be even one more) and one sister Anna, they all went to Barnsboro. I have all of their passenger lists The original surname Feshanych, his is my mothers family. They came from a village called Chysthorb(Czystohorb) which is now in Poland. They were part of the immigration to make money working in the mines etc....caame from oppressed lands......Ukrainians Greek Catholic from this area referred to as Lemko land/Lemkivschyna...I have done much research and have traveled to the ancestral lands. Huge family tree. Later when Helena's husband Hryc (Gregory) died back in Chysthorb about 1911 she ended up going to her children. On the passenger list is shows she is travelling with a child...Helena her maiden name was Chomko but in the archive office in Poland they can not find the marriage records..........The grandsons that are still alive, I am in contact with George Fisanich and was also was in contact with =Basil and his wife Rita.who still live in the area as far as I know.....they spell he name Fisanick....I had gone to the church in Spangler but the records were difficult to read. I do read Cyrillic but did hot have enough time to decipher all. I would love to get photos of the pages for the early years I hope they are not destroyed....I hope the records will be put in a safe place..... Perhaps Helena is listed there,too. If there is a way to get anything from those records it is like gold...No one seems to know anything or how to read these records.....So it is only information about Helen that I need specific. Where did she live? Did she remarry in Barnsboro? how did she die? Basically what was she doing while she was in Barnsboro area?

RE: Sides Cemetery
Found Adam Sides on Ancestry.Com at being a Civil War Vet. I also found a Veterans Marker beside a stone at Nebo. Since I have a list now I can do some more digging on Ancestry. Both of these cemeteries are very close to where I grew up.
