Most of the memorials I created, I did back in 2007, taking their name, dates, burial place from a Brown County, Kansas cemetery list. I'm not doing that anymore as others have taken up that process and are whizzing right thru it. May be close to complete for Brown county. As of late I've been working on updating my memorials one at a time. Looking for their obits, locating them in censuses and linking them to family.
On another note: There was a one-page article in the June 2011 issue of National Geographic about the number of people who have ever lived on earth. After much research American demographer Carl Haub estimated that 108 billion people lived (and died) between 50,000 B.C. and 2011.
Fred & Johanna Kerber Fred - I am so sorry that I am just now seeing this and responding and THANKING YOU for your time and effort. This IS my Great Uncle and Aunt and information very much appreciated. My only defense is that my husband, who is now in need of my help pretty much 24 hours each day, leaves me little time for doing the genealogy. I will print and save this information which I could never find on my own. AGAIN - THANK YOU.
Albert & Leona Cain Amman You have posted family info on Find A Grave for John B & Margaret Cain from Parnell, IA. Their daughter, Margaret (known as Leona) was my aunt. I have added her as the child of John B and Margaret. For more info check out the Find A Grave memorial for Aunt Leona. Thank you for all your work to help others find their families. Sincerely, -Helen Prieur Gengler Chesaning, MI
Jacob Viets # 30447697 Hi Keith, If you are not a relative I would appreciate it if you would transfer the profile of Jacob Viets # 30447697 to me as I am his great great grand daughter and would be happy to maintain and connect family memorials to him. Thank you Nell Beckman # 47636858
RE: Lela Lichty her father's sketch is in her father's bio. I sent an edit to add her parents. I show it sent. you didn't get it? I can't send it again because it's pending. This is her father 98579732 and her mother 98579769
RE: Censuses & obit I would have never found that obit on Johanna - this is above and beyond what I ever thought - so again Keith - I sure do thank you. I have a request in to the member who set up Frederick's page so that I can connect and do a small bio. Also made a page for Johanna and found his second wife Bertha. It has been a great day. Thanks again.
Frederick Kerber I believe that you found him for me --- after all of these decades. His son and family moved from South Dakota to IL where they stayed so this must be him - with those dates and location. Keith I sure do thank you. I feel I have FINALLY closed the search no on this branch. Wow - thanks
RE: Johanna That is absolutely her and I can't thank you enough - I will set up a page for her. As far as Frederick - I lost track of him so it may be and you have given me something to work from. They only had one son, William Henry who moved to South Dakota, so I assumed that he went to live with them but have not found that - the dates match for what you have found. Again Keith - just can't thank you enough!
RE: lookup Yes - sorry. His name would be Frederick (Fred or Fritz) W. (William) Kerber. She would be Johanna M. (Marie) Kerber. He was born May 1858 - not sure of death date. She was born March 2, 1867 and died Sept 1910.
