Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a fascination with genealogy, genetics and history. I like discovering the past because it’s a wonderful teacher and it helps me to understand who I am, where I come from and possibly where I am going. I believe that my interest in genealogy was sparked at a very young age, when my father would take me to places so he could do research on his family. Then in addition to that I had a great aunt who would pull out very old pictures and tell me stories about people in the family that at the time sounded very crazy. Many years later I was able to take those stories and put fact to them and figure out what she was talking about and piece it all together.

Cemeteries are a particular interest of mine because they contain so much history and contain our ancestors.

I think one of the best quotes I've ever ran across was by Benjamin Franklin about cemeteries.

“Show me your cemeteries and I will tell you what kind of people you have.” - Benjamin Franklin

"Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercies of its people their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high deeds." - William Gladstone

I have interest in may surnames but some of the ones are as follows:

Brauda / Braude and many variations from Lithuania, Belarus, Poland, Lativia, Moravia, United States and Israel.
Rother that immigrated from Prussia to Buffalo, NY. (Present day Poland)
Wöhl / Wohl / Woehl that immigrated from Oberseebach, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France
Morgenstern that immigrated from Oberseebach, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France to Welland County, Ontario, Canada. *Many Morgenstern took on the surname of Morningstar once in Canada.
Gooch / Googe in Barnwell County, South Carolina and possibly in Louisa, Virginia.
Levine from New York that went to South Carolina.
Freilich in Poland, Austria and possibly Czechoslovakia.
Weitzner in Poland and Austria that immigrated to the United States.

Charles Wilmer Myers
I would be honored if you would transfer your memorial # 23511325 (C.W. Myers) to Howard (Kip) Carter (Find A Grave Contributor # 48482030). He was my mother's baby brother. I am in the process of trying to acquire each of my Myers relatives and have a virtual cemetery for the entire family.

Thank you ahead of time for everything.

RE: Agnes Brauda Crawford
Well I am not really sure. My father is most likely related to any Crawfords in this area. I do know that they moved here from St. George Fla. I have been to the cemeteries there and seen my Great Great Grandfather and Grandmother's graves. It was a great feeling to see them. They are buried in you can look at the pictures on find a grave. look in the cemeteries in St. George Fla. I think the cem. is called North Prong Can't remember .If you can't find it let me know I will look it up.

John C Anger Memorial: 47941830
Just wondering how you associated the bio with this headstone - did you transcribe it from cemetery records? How is John born in 1766 but his headstone says he was 77 in 1813, which would make his birth date 1736.

I have John Charles Anger with the same family in my family tree; however, I doubt he was black and this headstone is in a "coloured" aka black cemetery.

Thanks for your help.

Find A Grave Memorial# 35869767
I'm looking for family members of William Irwin Barden Perry (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=35869767). William's brother John Wycliffe flew with the father of a gentleman from England, who would like to share family history documents with living family members. Any information you can offer would be much appreciated.
