Bio and Links
Bio Photo My goal is to make someone out there just as excited as I get when I find a long ago relative.
I find cemeteries generally very peaceful. And it's a way to get my much needed exercise.

If I have entered something wrong, please tell me! I WANT to correct it.

ATTENTION: Please understand we were flooded out of our home in Sept.2011. Request to find people will be slow or impossible to fulfill at this time. Sorry. Hunter

RE: Slavic Cemetery Old Forge PA
Hunter, I sent 5 letters to St Nicholas Church with no response. I even called and talked with the priest there .. don't know his name. He referred me to the secretary who works on Monday only. I even called the secretary Marianne without much in return. I sure would like a parishoner connection whom I can talk with. Thanks again. Frank

RE: Slavic Cemetery Old Forge PA
Hunter, Again Thanks. Are the plots and maps of the Slavic Cemetery or another in Old Forge and area? Do you have contact info for the church secretary? As for facebook it is not my cup of tea. Thanks for your efforts. Frank

RE: Slavic Cemetery Old Forge PA
Hunter, Thank for the info. The surnames I am looking for are Oreschak / Orischak and other variations of the spelling. Also possibly pierge / peirge. Names are Peter (d 1920) & Anna (d 1938). Census data showed there may be two others buried there. They would be young & possibly twins having died circa 1905-10.
That was their church from what I can discover. I am familiar with the area but not very with the churches there. Frank

Slavic Cemetery Old Forge PA
Hunter,
I am writing concerning your Find A Grave inputs for the Slavic Cemetery in Old Forge, PA. My parents are both buried there and I have created a memorial for both.
Do you live in the area? Do you know who the caretaker is? I am searching for my grandparents graves and I think they may be buried in the Slavic Cemetery. I would like to talk with someone who may have a plot map with names. I have written to the Church back there but no response.
I have heard of an old St Nicholas Cemetery but can't find anything on that. I am assuming that it is now the Slavic Cemetery.
If you are able to help I would greatly appreciate it.
I thank you in advance and look forward to hearing from you.

There may be errors in it. The information was provided by family members and sometimes errors were recorded in the book.

RE: 73362935 Margaret Witzal
Found that information in the History of Newton and Ransom Townships book 1912 by John B Stephens on book page 226. The book is available online (the online version is page 232 but the text is still on page 226) There's 8 pages that mention Witzal (table of contents, text page 177, 178, 225, 226, 228, 244, 247)

Also has a picture of the house which was built in 1822 by Mr Woosley and the family. Not sure who is in the photo with John and Margaret. Either Emma and Burton Hartman with John OR William and Emma Witzal with Lillian. You might be able to figure it out when Lillian was born. John is born May 1911. The baby in the photo looks like an infant. The book was published about summer of 1912.

If you can't find the book, there's a link to it from the Newton and Ransom Genealogy pages

Hope this helps

Marcy Cemetery
I work a mile down the road from the cemetery and I dropped by there today to see if I could get some location info from them. I found the caretaker and he said the office guy died and they aren't replacing him. They don't help people with locating graves because they've been burned too many times by people asking for famly info, agreeing to pay for it, then never paying.
The last straw was a woman who asked for info on 48 relatives, the famly was over 100 yrs behind on paying their care fees and when presented with a very modest bill for the geneology research only, she refused to pay it and called the church next door which is *not* affiliated with the cemetery and swore up and down the minister who had just lost his 8 yr old son two days before. So they aren't going to help anyone.

He did say I'm welcome to come and wander around looking for the graves, so I'll go during my lunch times, when I'm not travelling to other offices, and I'll knock out the 12 requests sitting there.

RE: Marcy Cemetery
the certificate states Marcy Cemetery, this should be it, there isn't another Marcy Cemetery other than this in Duryea? Is there?

Do you have the number to the Marcy Cemetery? I cannot seem to locate it. Much appreciated.
