Bio and Links
I have been finding my ancestors since 1987. Whenever we travel we have always been interested in the cemeteries, especially the ones that have our relatives.

Thanks to the contributors on this website I have found information on relatives in areas I have not traveled and may never get the chance to see.

At the moment I am taking pictures in three cemeteries. Riverton Crest, Tahoma National & Woodbine. I check for memorials, but miss a few. Please let me know so I can remove any duplicates I have made. Same goes for errors. Please send the information through the edit tab on the memorial. If you just want me to change or add information. Please send the name of the person, their memorial number and the data I will need to correct or add. I do reserve the right to keep any memorials I wish.

I reserve the right to not transfer memorials unless they are close, direct relates. I do transfer to people who are helping others by taking pictures of entire cemeteries. Thank you to these people who are helping others to find their relatives and not just doing their own family.

RE: Thomasz Snaza
Hi! I have been researching the Snaza families of South Dakota/Poland, and I have discovered a confusion on many family trees in Thomasz and Jan (John) Snaza were brothers who both immigrated from German-occupied Poland to Day County, South Dakota in the 1880s, and they both had sons named John P. Snaza!

Most researchers have listed John P. Snaza Jr (1868-1941) under Thomasz Snaza and John P. Snaza (1879-1915) under Jan (John) Snaza, but I believe this must be backwards. The 1910, 1920, and 1940 US Census gives the 1868 John P. Snaza's name as "Jr" so he must be the son of John, not Thomasz.

Switching the John P. Snazas to what I believe are their correct parents fits in the timelines of both families. John P. Snaza Jr (1868-1941) would be the first child of Jan (John) Snaza and Josephine Koslowski, born a year before their next child. John P. Snaza (1879-1915) would be the ninth child of Thomas Snaza and Marianna Goezkowski, born right in the middle of a six-year gap between the 8th and 10th child.

I have both John P. Snaza families and descendants in my Conway-Willard Tree, which can help you to fill out the tree for the correct John P. Snaza. I am a Gockowski relative, so I had not paid any attention to Jan (John) Snaza's family until I recently discovered the situation with two John P. Snazas.

Hope this helps!

Dave Conway, great-grandson of Jan Goczkowski and Susan Trochowski (Jan is a brother-in-law of Thomasz Snaza)

Adam Ickes
Pe Ell Cemetery. I see you photographed his grave in 2012. I am looking for his wife's burial. Her name is Ida Belle Ickes born 6 Jan 1858 died 23 Jun 1932. Is her grave near his? I cannot read the writing below the dates on his stone. Is her name there or is that a statement. I would appreciate any help you can give me. Laurie

Thanks again. Can't wait to try. Hopefully, this weekend. I, also, belong to Graphic Stock so I can also get nice graphics from them. Don't worry I belong to them and pay for them. Therefore, I can use them for Find a Grave. Linda Anna

RE: 22084093
If you "Begin New Search", type 22084093 into the memorial box and hit enter, it should bring up a Mrs. Hauver. For proof/evidence, google Tahoma Cemetery Yakima and select their website. It has a search function off to the right. It will give you her plot info in Yakima. It is a little confusing to have a Tahoma Cemetery and a Tahoma National Cemetery in the same state. I've seen this a dozen times or so. Thanks for the help cleaning this up.
