My Virtual Cemeteries.

Union Veterans.
While serving as the Graves Registration Officer for Cochise County, Arizona, for the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW), I researched Union veterans of Cochise County. This took me all over the United States. Union virtual cemeteries include:
- Members of Tombstone, AZ, Burnside Post, G.A.R.
- Members of Bisbee, AZ, Kehoe/Stebbins Post, G.A.R.
- Officers who served at Fort Mason, Arizona Territory, during the Civil War
- Veterans of the Native California Cavalry (a Spanish language Civil War regiment)
- California Volunteers during the Civil War

Family Virtual Cemeteries:
Siemsen Kin.
Deceased members of the Siemsen-Neuhoefel-Lemburg clans that originated in Dithmarschen, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. To recall Dithmarschen's years as an independent republic (1227-1559) the Dithmarschers used to inscribe 'Ditmarsia Libera Fuit' (Latin: 'Dithmarschen was free') on buildings, boundary markers, pottery, and grave stones. I have included it at the bottom of memorials for those who were born in Dithmarschen. (

Schermerhorn Kin.
Deceased ancestors of my maternal line, an old colonial family that dates back to when the Dutch founded New Netherlands and New Amsterdam (now New York).

"Hey, what about my family?" OK, dear, here they are! Many of them were early Hispanic pioneers of (Alta) California and Arizona (pre-1848).
