Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is my passion so when I add a memorial I try to find out vital info for that person.

My motto- "If you donít know your history, then you donít know anything. You are a leaf that doesnít know it is part of a tree."~ Michael Crichton

Primary family surnames researching: Rice, Trainor, Marin, Berube, Heavner, Mick, Pritt

I have added memorials from some photographs I have taken, obituaries, death records/certificates found in public records and some cemetery listings and veterans records.

Please DO ask for transfers.
I believe memorials belong to those who loved or know more about them than I. Their memorial will be better honored with your personal knowledge of them.
Will only refuse those I am related to.

Welcome corrections, additions and links to family members. Please use the edit tab.

My photos of GRAVES ONLY may be copied. I took them for you and anyone interested. Why take them if not sharing. Personal photos I would prefer to be contacted for permission to copy.

Photo quality varies with light and weather. If you captured a better photo than mine and wish to post it, just let me know so I can delete mine.

Obituaries are copyrighted, so I won't post them but use info from them. I will ignore obituaries sent to me to post.

Unmarked graves sadden my heart.
An Irish poem that reminds us marking our loved ones final resting places is a special gift.

Scatter me not to the restless winds
Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee.
Remember now the happy times
The family ties are shared.
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared.
Deny me not one final gift
For all who came to see.
A simple lasting proof that says
I loved and you loved me.

Mark Duda
Duda memorial and Berube surname
Good morning Linda.

I wanted to ask if I you could also transfer the management of the memorials of Regina C. Duda Pelli and Catherine J. Duda Girard to me as well. They are sisters to Stephanie.

I noticed on your bio that you are researching the Berube name. There is a Berube that married into this Duda family. Andre Berube married Viola Duda, the second daughter of Stanislaw and Josephine. They are listed as living in the same home as Stanislaw and Josie in the 1940c. Andre was from RI, the son of Adelard and Ida Berube of Providence, RI but originally French Canadians (1920c). I believe Viola and Andre either divorced or he passed and she remarried a Warren.

RE: Stephanie Duda Walls
Linda thank you so much! Living in Alabama means making it to Worcester nearly impossible to do, so this means the world to me. Feel free to email me when the time gets close.

Enjoy your books!

RE: Stephanie Duda Walls
This is what I have from St. Patrick's Cemetery records.

Stanislaw (Stanley) Duda:
Died July 15, 1947 in Grafton, MA from a Coronary Thrombosis at the age of 60. He was buried on July 19, 1947.
Josephine Duda:
Died on Sept 9, 1965 in South Grafton, MA from Cardiovascular Disease at the age of 70. She was buried on Sept 11, 1965.

I have also contacted some of the parishes in the area and only found records on the children.

Helen (Minior)
Viola (Warren)
Anna or Antholina
Stephanie (Walls)
Stanislaw (died young, can only find baptismal record)
Regina (Pelli)
Catherine (Girard) were all the children.

Thank you Linda. I am always hoping to find someone or a record that lists the parents home town in Poland. No luck yet! Thank you again.

Thank you for taking your time to put my great aunts info together. I have not been able to access any records on her. You mentioned you found her birth record from Clinton MA. Would it happen to list any additional information other than the names of her parents, Josephine and Stanislaw?

Thank you so much for your contributions!
