Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree off and on since I was 12 years old (so over 42 years). I feel it is often like a treasure hunt. I enjoy researching for others and enjoy seeing how much information I am able to gather for them.

My love for genealogy came from my father, Rev. Geo. K. Swartzfager. He was a minister and was able to learn and remember family members of most of his parishioners. I seem to have this same ability often to the annoyance of my own family. They often seem to feel this is a curse but I feel it is a blessing that I have gladly inherited.

As I said, I am willing to do research for others. I have several books to assist in this research: Cemeteries of Crawford County, Ohio, Volumes 1, 2A and 3; Marriages of Crawford County, Ohio 1831-1997; History of Crawford County, Ohio; Index of Applications of The Pioneer Families of Crawford County, Ohio; and Families of Crawford County, Ohio 1977-1978.

Please do not make duplicates of people I have added to Find A Grave. I am willing to make transfers whenever the person is not related to my family. I will try to respond/transfer as soon as possible. I enjoy working on Find A Grave and visit cemeteries to take pictures as often as possible. While in a cemetery in Pennsylvania, I met a cousin (living of course). You never know what you may find. A friend says she can't go by a cemetery without thinking of me. My daughter just thinks its creepy. Hopefully someday my children will inherit some of my genealogy insanity.

Graheks in Holy Rosary Cemetery in Republic, PA
Do you have any information on the Graheks in Holy Rosary Cemetery in Republic, PA? I am researching them and have no idea how Noreen Marie Vernon Grahek fits in. Her stone suggests she is related to Tony Grahek but he died at 16 and is the son of Mary and Frank Grahek Jr. and a maiden name of Vernon suggests she was married but Mary and Frank only had one son that I know of, Tony and a daughter whose name is not known. Just running out of resources. Thanks for posting their memorials.

re: Betty Lou Durbin
Hi Kathy, thank you so much for searching for and taking grave pics to add to Betty Durbin's memorial. I appreciate it. She was a nice neighbor of mine. She was working as a waitress at Bob Evans and passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at home. donna

Thanks for adding the obit to the bio...just posted it since "Dead Stock" sounded made up...so you would know it was real...and others would...but sometimes they delete obit pictures, so the bio is more stable area for that info. ...

It is also more legible in the bio typed out..
