Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will look up names if you seek someone in either of the Nebraska directories in the photo--Custer County, Sherman County, and Valley County.


I do transfers under Findagrave guidelines. If you are not familiar with the guidelines please look them up. I am not likely to make a transfer without specifics that fall in those guidelines--in keeping with a system of fairness.

Mendyk, Nebraska-Poland
I am Crystal Mendyk (1972) the daughter of Tim Mendyk, who is the son of Sylvester 'Jack' Mendyk and Opal Urwiller. I have a sister named Amber Mendyk (1975).

You have posted find a grave information from my father, Tim C. Mendyk's, side of the family. His father was Sylvester Jack Mendyk and Mother was Opal Irene Urwiller. My Grandfather was Sylvester Jack Mendyk, & his father was Joseph John Mendyk. It states that Joseph John Mendyk was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1860. I have been trying to research my family tree 'into' Poland to find out more of my ancestory. Would you know where I could find out more information about those people that were in Poland or if the name "Mendyk" was changed when they immigrated to Nebraska USA?

Nellie Marian Murray Caywood
I see you created a site for her under the name of Nellie M. Stacey Caywood. I know this is the same person, but do not know where the name Stacey came from. Do you have more info on her?

Correction: Lillie Stutely
Thank you for noticing that I had accidentally created duplicates. Did you also tell Russ that he has misspelled their last names on his memorials? I will delete mine but it would be also great if he could correct the spelling to match the stones. :-)

obits Masek/Moudry
you note an obituary for Katherine Masek Moudry Memorial# 136657934 was published in Chicago Tribune of December 19, 1940
Also an obit for Joseph J Moudry Memorial# 136657941 published 9 Feb 1942.
Do you by chance have these obits?
I wonder if Katherine's parents Frank 1851-1904 and Marie Pazandak Masek 1854-1903 are mentioned.
I believe this Katherine was born 23 May 1883 when her parents lived at 794 Alport, Chicago.
They also perhaps are buried in Saint Adalbert Catholic Cemetery.
Thanks for your work enriching the genealogy community.
