Click my cemetery photos for all info concerning them. I try for best possible pics/info up for them. Occasional updates. If you post this info credit this source. Thank you.
*All memorial photos have permission to be used for general purposes but should be given proper credit. That's why I take them but do not rip them, claim them as your own. Thank you.
*Individual photographs NO permission being from various family collections. Photos I add courtesy of others do NOT have permission. Please respect this. Any information that can be added to my family listings, usually marked w/flowers, (as are some friends) is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Should you find anything of interest e-mail me separate from this site. *Info received for all posts here will be credited and dated/updated unless requesting not to be identified. Sources not affiliated with f/g will not be ID'd unless requesting it for privacy.

Pics up document cem in it's current state. Possible duplicate posts due to described damage. Plots w/out markers put up as such.

RE: Deisher, Frackville...
Yes, I am interested in the other Deisher's in that cemetery. If you would like to transfer them to me that would be great. That way I can update their information and link them with their parents, siblings and the rest of our family and ancestors. My member number is #48172028.

Thank you!

Weikel cemetery
Thank-you for photographing this unknown cemetery. Gone but not forgotten. Most likely some of my distant relatives as I am a gr grand-daughter of Fietta Weikel, d/o Jacob 1825 and Saloma Kerstetter Weikel.

Token you left for Traci Fields
Because of you and other wonderful findagrave friends, Traci now has 5,260 flowers/tokens, and her birthday is a little over a week away. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We appreciate you all so much.

I'm in awe! To show you more of what Traci was like, I posted the following on her memorial page,

"Traci, my angel, I can see the big grin on your face for all the flowers you're receiving on your memorial page. You're telling me, "Mom, why are you so surprised there are so many good people in this world? You should have known that....." "You're right, sweetheart, I should have known".

Traci was a person of strong faith, and GOD took excellent care of her, and helped her through all her hardships! Her faith never waivered.

GOD, bless them all, and thank you for your wonderful gift of Traci.

We've received an outpouring of so much love for Traci. I will try to get to everyone's site and leave a flower/token for at least one of their loved ones. However, there are so many of you, it will take me a while.
