Bio and Links
I was a "Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness" RAOGK volunteer for the Kankakee County, Illinois Area.
I will take cemetery photos in Kankakee County, some parts of northwest Ford County, northern Iroquois County and southern Will County as time permits.
Other than my own family, I will transfer any memorials I have created if some one else wants them.

Hello Mr, Marek, I drove to Aroma Park yesterday to try to find my great grandmothers grave. Unfortunately I did not. I realize that 114 yrs has past and the stones don't hold up. My question is who do I contact to find what row and plot she is in. Julia Mott Jan 1871 to May 1902. You can email me at the email address below. thank you

I made the changes you sent me for Lydia and found a couple more. I'm not related to Lydia and would be more than happy to transfer her to you if you would like. Let me know.

Also, talk about a small world; I'm basicly from Kankakee, even though I was born in Pontiac. My mother, sister, uncle, aunt, grandparents, and great grandparents are all buried in Kankakee Memorial Gardens. My dad was from Peoria County but graduated from Kankakee HS in 1939. We ended up in Texas and he is buried at Ft Sam where Lydia is.

Well let me know if you want the transfer.

I couldn't help but notice how many relatives of mine that you created memorials for and I wanted to thank you.

RE: Don Schneider
Thanks Joe. Its way too early for me to tell you which memorials I'd like to manage. Suffice to say, my parents, grand parents, great grand parents (immediate relatives) for starters. As I have time, i'll be uploading corrections and photos. If you have created them, hen you can turn them over to me.

I'm trying to add siblings and haven't figured out how it is done. Is there a guide anywhere?
