Bio Photo Family's wanting a memorial removed, please contact me. No reason needed or questions asked and I will not contact you. Memorial will be removed soon as I get the request. SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS, No disrespect intended. Be advised, to check findagrave often, because somebody else might come along and repost the memorial.I also post memorial to SDGS south dakota grave stones project. I DO NOT post to WWW. BILLIONSGRAVES.COM

Born in Manhattan NY, grew up in Brooklyn Heights NY. I served in the US Army 1969-1984, starting out in the Women's Army Corps 1969-1979, the WAC deactivated and merged into the regular army. I was a Combat medic for 14 1/2 years, served two years as a Drill Sgt Ft McClellan Al, ret SFC.

My family was from PA and NY. Grandparents immigrating from Russia/Poland/Germany. My father's rellies settled in Luzerne County PA. My mother's family was from upstate NY, Olean/Portville.

I started my family search in 1995 and because of my Luzerne connections group's help, I found I had more family than just a grandfather. Leads led to others and lots of friends made along the way.

I don't do memorials as a HOBBY I volunteer to take photo's of headstones, because it helps others research their families. Preserves the headstone before it is completely gone from age-honor our Veterans.

I will make corrections, add additional info & family links,transfers when asked. Use the Edit tab, then the Suggest A Correction option & this way I will get the direct link info. I add obits if there is one available or will add any info given to me

PLEASE DONT STEAL MY PHOTOS OR REWRITE A TRANSFER AS YOUR OWN WORK, OR PUT ON OTHER WEB SITES. I will ask Find a grave to remove it. If you want to use a photo, just ask. If I gave you permission to use a photo, please make a note as to PHOTO USED WITH PERMISSION, I have been finding a lot that I don't remember giving permission to use. Photo's used on this site are copyrighted.

RE: photo request

Nice to hear from you, hope all is well. Yes, I'm still taking memorial photos but am sort of on a hiatus right now. I'm in the process of selling my home and drastically downsizing. I'm trying to sort and/or dispose of 35 years worth of "stuff". I have to be done by August 15 so I'll get out and try to find your relatives for you sometime in September.

take care,

RE: simchick
If you don't live there and don't know the area, it's hard to find this cemetery. I got lost twice trying to find it, it's up on a hill way outside of town. Andrew's headstone is laying on the ground sadly, and this is the only Simchiek grave that I photographed. That's not saying that Anthony & Anna aren't buried there too, because they could be. I tried to walk every row and take photos, but I'm sure I missed some. Good luck with your research!

RE: simchick
I just happened to be there looking for my own families headstones and decided to take photos of as many graves as I could, but I don't live in the area. I do have a photo of Andrew Simchiek's grave and I think that's who you're looking for.

If you would like to transfer this memorial to me, I would gladly maintain it. William is part of my late husband's line that I have been following for about twenty years now.
