Bio and Links
Through research and visiting these cemeteries, I'm hoping to find out more about where I came from and why my ancestors chose to start new lives in the United States. I've started that journey by searching out the final resting places of my family.

I am currently researching the Cmar/Czmar, Orluk, Rydesky/Rydzesky, Urban and Rajaski/Radiszewski families of western Pennsylvania.

Please feel free to take any of my photographs and use them in your own research projects. You don't have to credit me or anything. This is a hobby for me; I won't be bothered with petty fights over "fair use." These are photographs of gravestones and cemeteries, after all -- the subjects won't be complaining!

Should you want a memorial transferred to you, just ask (nicely).

RE: Baby Girl Shaffer

Matt, thanks for doing the edits so quick and the offer of transfer, I'm just trying to find all the children, maybe when I finish my research I ask for her.

RE: Maxine
Find a grave would not let me delete the old one since I did not create the memorial, but they let me explain why I wanted the old one deleted. I guess they need to review and act on it. I hope that is the right way to interpret what happened when I tried to delete it!

Maxine Tenenbaum
Thank you so much Matt for discovering my error! I have now created a new memorial for Maxine Tenenbaum in the Old Gemilas Chesed Cemetery and deleted her old memorial. You also solved another mystery for me - who was her husband! Thank you for putting a photo on her memorial page. Warmly, Sara

RE: Rajaski family
Matt..... I enjoy trying to find the siblings, parents, children by quickly looking in Ancestry... I think people need to be found and find their families. It is my honor to help when I can... Roseanne Kocinski-Fowler
