Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an retired electrical engineer who got into family research a few years ago. Now am an adict on finding family history I live in Michigan, which itself is a font of history, and have found that my family were pioneers and have famous connections, much of which I hadn't known about. Taking pictures of headstones connected to the family has helped tidy up family relationships, since with the headstone dates, a person can go and look up old newspapers for more data. Along with some other sites like, findagrave is a nice way to leave some of that history to be found by others.

Believe the missing words for the poem


This was written out as from singular since it says A voice "I" instead we and "my" instead of ours before home I assume it may be me instead of us
If I already set this in your suggestion box I apologize for resending MJ

RE: George Proulx
Yes a challenge indeed!! Makes you wonder and of course probably no way of finding out for sure.

I just came across another memorial in Pellston I believe, and same thing. Forgot the name, maybe you'd know who they are if I could remember.

Lady was buried in Pellston as her obit says, but her husband was buried downstate and has her name on the stone.

Thanks again,

Hiya Jim,

I searched like heck and didn't find anything on Wayne!! Glad you got some info.

Makes me feel bad when I come across a memorial and no info to link them to. :(

Thanks again,

Saint Thomas Cemetery
Hi Jim,

Curious if you seen any Budeks or Bertoni's when you were at this cemetery in Elmira. Pertaining to Jennie Budek-Bertoni. I got her obit from Greenwood but placed her in the wrong St Thomas cemetery. Obit says funeral was in Ann Arbor at St Thomas and burial following in St Thomas Cemetery. On Greenwood it says St Thomas in Elmira.

Thank you,

Fettig, Louis and Edna
Hello! Just added their son to your memorials. I was surprised to learn he had died so young. Cheers.

P.P.S. Jim. I made the modern day photo of the buildinglook better by taking out the automobile, however, I can remove them if you have more appropriate photos of the building. Thanks again. I will be in touch soon.
