Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family's genealogy since a history teacher assigned a project to me as a high school sophomore. That was a long time ago! Today I focus on helping people with Sawyer County (Wisconsin) area research, plus compiling information on Polish Americans in Wisconsin. Please contact me if you need assistance with northern Wisconsin genealogy or Wisconsin Polonia, or other Polish ancestry research.

I transcribed the Winter Cemetery on July 6-7, 2010, the Exeland Cemetery on July 17, 2002, the Radisson Cemetery on Aug. 9, 2007, the Couderay Cemetery on July 16, 2002, the Loretta/Draper Cemetery on July 8, 2012, and the Signor and Bellile cemeteries on July 9, 2012. During the summer of 2013 I also visited the Historyland, St. Francis, New Post, and Flambeau cemeteries. These were tombstone transcriptions only. I'm now adding to these entries as well as adding unmarked graves via the Sawyer County Record newspaper archives. Please contact me if you need an obit look-up in the Sawyer County Record based in Hayward. You may contact the Sawyer County Gazette based in Winter directly by writing to

***Restoration of the cross at the Winter Cemetery is now complete (Sawyer County Gazette 8/4/2010). Anyone who would like to contribute to the ongoing restoration of the cemetery can contact Winter Cemetery Assoc., PO Box 277, Winter, WI 54896.

****St. Ignatius Church, affiliated with the New Post Cemetery, is in desperate need of renovation. The estimated total cost of repairs is $60,000. Fundraising has begun, with private donations totaling $3,000 so far.
More information can be obtained from Father Hopefl, who serves a three-point parish including St. Francis Solanus at Reserve, St. Phillip's in Stone Lake and St. Ignatius in New Post.
The mailing address is St. Francis Rectory, 13891W Mission Road, Stone Lake, WI 54876.

RE: Milwaukee Almshouse
It was an honor and privilege to work on this cemetery, but I can't take all the thanks. Judy H:

was the one who scanned all the almshouse book pages and sent them to me so I could enter the information. She's done a lot of research on the cemetery.
