Bio and Links
Bio Photo A big thank you to all the great volunteers who are helping in the gathering of information and the requesting photos for all the WW II memorials. I am getting so many additions that it is possible that I did not send a thank you but be assured that I am very thankful.

Photographs and pictures I have taken or posted may be used for only non commercial purposes. If I have posted a photo on a memorial and that memorial is removed the photo cannot be used for any other purposes.
I am no longer a Photo Volunteer due to stolen pictures that have been copied and then placed on new memorials.
Most of the Memorials I manage are not relatives. I transfer management outside the Find A Grave recommendations. Please ask for transfers the recommended way.

Hi Rich, thanks for the information. I didn't see the other memorial so I figured you deleted it. I have transferred her memorial to you.

RE: Daisy Kerske
No, I'm not related. They are related to some friends who I am helping with their family history. Thanks for the thought, though.

RE: Pvt Henry Elsner
Oh ok if died August 17, 1944 he would of died of wounds received in Normandy. If died in the Netherlands, he would have been killed on September 17, the day they jumped into Holland for Operation Market Garden

Michael Scianna KIA
I would like to thank you so very much and Mary Arvidson for posting pictures of my Great Uncle Mike Scianna who was KIA & also his parents Joseph & Anna Scianna headstones from St. Joseph's Cemetery, River Grove, IL, Memorial #131090647. The obit from the Chicago Tribune was great to see. Can I ask a question, the obit was an abstract and was dated 4 1/2 yrs after his death, do you know is that when he finally was buried? My mother was too young to remember if it took the Military that long to send his body home from Germany...any help would be appreciated. Thanks again & keep up the great work.

Rich, thanks for the find!

This one had been a bit of a mystery. One site suggested the plane was lost en route to Hawaii. Another said crashed at Suisun, but I could not find death certificates to verify that.

Frank Krejca photo request
You are receiving this message because you have submitted a photo request for the above named person(s). I wanted to let you know that I will be traveling to that area from Dallas during the first week of June and I would be able to get the requested photo(s) for you. I do need some help from you tho. While I am in the Chicago area, I intend to get as many names off the list for Evergreen Cemetery as possible. The list is growing every day and is now at 263 requests! Evergreen Cemetery is near and dear to my heart as I have several of my own family members there. If you would please call the cemetery office and obtain the burial plot locations and send them to me, I will for sure get them for you when I go there in June. If everyone could get me the locations I could really get a lot of requests done but I can't do it alone! The office number for Evergreen Cemetery is 708-422-9051. You can leave me a public message with the information, or you may email me at Please be sure to reference the requested names. Thank you!
