Rivard family in Iroquois county
Hi Norma! I've been doing extensive research to locate the parents of my 3rd great-grandmother for about 20 years. I came across your books about St. John the Baptist church in L'erable and the Find a Grave memorials you have posted and I think you may be the only one who can help me. As I am located out of state, I am not able to travel there and am having difficulty getting church records.

Would you be available and willing to lend your expertise to help me? I hate to impose on you, but you are the resident expert on the area and I fear that I will never be able to continue my matrilineal line without your assistance.

Gratefully yours,
Erica Lancaster

Would you please transfer the care of these Find-A-Grave memorials to me? They are my 5th Great-Grand-Parents. I am an avid genealogist and will accurately and lovingly care for both sites. Thank you. FAITH GOULD BYRD #46988323

Robert Emmett Walsh
Hello Norma. I see that you have mistakenly added two photos of Robert Emmett "Judge" Walsh to the memorial page for his father, the elder Robert Emmett Walsh--a photo of Judge's face, and a photo of his new grave marker.

Would you kindly move those to Judge Walsh's memorial?

And thanks so much for submitting a photo of the new stone that our family has installed!

RE: Auguste Marie Henriette Gierke
Dear Norma,

My great-grandmother Augusta GEHRKE Scheefeldt was born in Germany September 1853 according to a 1900 census of Seward Township in Kendall County Illinois. She was 47 and her hubby, Carl Scheefeldt, /incorrectly picked up as Shefeld/, was 46.

You should be able to access the 1900 census for yourself. If not, then, you can use your public library to access that and other documents you need for FREE. Just ask the librarian to assist you in using their printer.

PLS let me know if you think we may have a common family link so until then, 'Happy Hunting' and hope to hear news from you about a hit!

P.S. Just heard that Dr. Oz is a distant relative of Albert Einstein, George Clooney, and (UGH!!!) Jeffrey Dammer!

Hello, I am new to this site. I am researching the history of my family, the Baltazor's, ND I noticed you had some information on past generations of my family and was wondering if you hd anymore information, or how this site even works. Thanks, Monica Baltazor

RE: Auguste Marie Henriette Gierke
Hi Norma,

Thanks to Yorkville's County Clerk's Offices online death certificate request form, we should have dob & other information about Augusta's background within a month. I opted for the non-certified copy. Hope it's the same document except for missing certification stamp.

Can't wait to see her correct birthdate; will her parents names both be there? Gehrke/Gierke/Jehrke spelling? Will it show her city of birth? Hope its very detailed. I'll send you your copy ASAP.

Best Regards to you Norma; Happy Hunting!

[Augusta would be my mother, Dorothy Scheefeldt's grandmother]. Mom's dad's dad's mom is Augusta.
