Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in ancestry and my roots following the death of my father Walter in Dec., 2002. Because his parents died when he was 5 in 1926, we knew next to nothing about his side of the family. Due to the help of non-Church individuals, such as individuals at the Bethlehem Public Library and the Northampton County Courthouse Complex in Easton, Pennsylvania, and using the ever-growing internet technologies, I located a distant family relative in Doylestown, PA (Emily Rosypal) who was able to fill me in on my father's side of the family and his father's origins in Russia Poland. I have found that the simplest provision of assistance in researching one's ancestry can open doors long closed by severed ties to family members through illness, death, and physical distance. It is rewarding to flesh-out a rich ancestry where all otherwise could have continued into lost and forgotten history, and I am appreciative to those who have honored my simple requests for help and/or information directed towards those ends. Similarly, I regret that some individuals are purposely non-cooperative with these requests for help, and their actions are noted as well.

I see you have redone his place of burial and so have also deleted the one I had for him. If I can be of any assistance or you wish memorials transferred to you, that are of course, mine, I would be more than happy to do so. :)

RE: Cemetery photo
I didn't click on it because I know the photo well. Maybe they can add a caption under it.
