Bio and Links
I'm a newer member to FindaGrave but I have used this website since 2007. I became aware of this website when I started working on a family tree for a family reunion. I had a large number of photos due to my research and thought one of these days when I have time, I should upload them to FindaGrave. Since I have retired, I now have time and thus I became an official member. I am willing to transfer memorials as long as they are not related to me, but do so thru the "edit" process and explain your reason for transfer. This saves time looking up the memorial and your member ID. Most of the memorials I have added are at Trinity Cemetery, an old Catholic cemetery in Erie. Keep in mind there are many headstones at Trinity that are not readable.

If you have updates to memorials, explain the updates. I don't arbitrarily accept updates without some verification. I am always willing to do research and have done so with a number of people/members (you know who you are). It's exciting and challenging.

And please, if you find errors please let me know. I do my best to have accurate info, but I am human and we all make mistakes. My direct family lines are Madura, Stempka, Rawa, and Delinski.

God Bless!

Thank you for creating the links & for taking the time to photograph & create these memorials. I would never have found them without your help.

FYI, Joseph J Sloan was a brother of Irene [Sloan] Peiffer [my husband's grandmother].

Martha Jarzemski Buczkowski

I'm new to this findagrave/genealogy thing so I apologize if this is a dumb question....
I'm wondering why/how there is a middle name (or, I assume, her maiden name) for Martha Jarzemski Buczkowski? I don't see 'Jarzemski' on the headstone and I don't see it in anyone else's name on the list. I'm trying to determine if this might be my great-grandmother's sister, but I want to verify the source of 'Jarzemski'.

Thanks! Jennifer

Alfons Jalynski
Thank you for posting the information for Alfons Jalynski's tombstone. This is my great-grandfather and no-one in my family knew anything about him.
Do you have any additional information about him and his ancestors?

Thank you,
-Rick Miklinski

RE: 146546072
Thanks Diane

His family has him as Valentine "Walter" per his son that is still with us! I understand and believe you completely on the translation equal.
As for Irene - I see an Irene in the Other Bukowski family tree in town - will look into it and get back to you. A Michelle Murosky has done their tree and it is in book form in the library.

Oddly - I met a lady about 30yrs ago in downtown Erie who told me that she was Irene Bukowski. She did not know her family and was looking for them.
Will email you back
thanks again

Josefa "Josephine" Bukowski Baginski

Hi Diane
I sent you a note thru Edits for Josefa today.

We got her birth certificate. She was born in Swiecienin, Poland that was housed in Radzilow on 23 Oct 1886.
Died 17 Sept 1966 in Erie, PA.
Married on 17 Aug 1905 at Holy Trinity RC Church to Valentine "Walter".
Her granddaughter traveled to Poland and got all of the siblings birth certs. All the dates we had and what are on the death certs are wrong!
Hope all is going good with you.

Thanks for the change!
