Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't transfer to memorial collectors!! If that is you, don't expect a response!!!!!


Many people are studying their family history to find medical information. Among the conditions that are thought hereditary and at least partly preventable or treatable are depression, diabetes, kidney disease, hypertension, heart disease, and cancer. Omitting medical information is not polite, IMHO.

I found a statement about links that perfectly expresses my own beliefs. I'm posting it with permission.--------------------------
Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten.I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.

My number of memorials managed is increasing because I apparently am the succession plan for a few contributors, at least partially. I don't mind, it's easy to maintain memorials.

Hi Topeka Tom,
Beverly and Barbara Fresquez were twin sisters, they are Demecio's sisters and Demecio was my uncle. They died shortly after they were born. I would like to request a transfer, as they were my aunts. I am working on the Fresquez family. Thank you

I have added the grave picture of Matilda to your memorial. You have done all of the research so If it is OK, I would like Delete my memorial page for her.

Hi Tom!
I was wondering where you got your information that says that baby died in November. He's part of our family. Just curious...
