Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I sit back and reflect on the significant events and important aspects in my life, one major theme emerges, which is a loving and supportive family, that honors and treasures our heritage, actively preserves our family history and encourages accurate research to put the pieces of the puzzle of our families past.

I am, Betty L. Schmidt, a sixth generation native Coloradoan. I am the 3rd great-granddaughter of Adam Schwab, the 2nd great-granddaughter of Johann Adam Michael Meyer and Daniel M. Baker. I am the great granddaughter of Bertha and Emil Schmidt.
I am 2nd great-granddaughter of William Eliphalet and Melvira Millicent Holbrook and the great-granddaughter of Mary Melvira and William Edgar Taylor. In addition, I am a direct descendent of William Bradford, Governor of the Plymouth Colony and a passenger on the Mayflower.

I am a retired central office administrator, teacher, genealogist and poet, who lives in two places. My permanent residence is Fountain, Colorado, but winter in Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

RE: Thanks for your service
Hello Betty,
I'm writing just to let you know I was at Sant'Ulderico cemetery today, I took photos of all tombs with the surnames I had on your list (however I believe one or two weren't present). I just need a few days to sort through them as I was really out for cemeteries today and I took over a thousand photos overall.
Anyways, will sort them and make them available to you in the next few days!
Catch you later,

RE: Thanks for the suggestions
No problem...I am not related, just got intrigued with the family for some reason, and did some research on them.

I'm a recently retired teacher of elementary gifted kids and have taken on genealogy...I am knee deep, no, chest it, love the peace of cemeteries to photograph stones, especially the country ones across the gravel road from the small churches!

May I have that awesome leopard top when you're done wearing it????? Ha

Thanks for your contributions on Find A Grave!

RE: Thanks for the photo
Hi Betty. Your very welcome. There were quite a few names on the Mausoleum. I only took pictures of the one side if you would like me to email them direct to you I'm more than happy to do this.

RE: Thanks for your service
You're welcome, I love doing these searched.
I'm saving these names and checking them later this Winter. Will let you know if I get anything new, I should be going up there in Feburary if everything goes to plan.

RE: Thanks for your service

I am not close at the moment but I may be in a couple of months as Schio is near where I go skiing. Are you looking into logging the whole cemetery or looking for specific surnames/people related to you?

RE: Thanks for the photo

I'm glad to help. I was stopping by that ground regardless in search of someone else and thought to check on who else might need some photos. I wish that something like FindAGrave existed back in the early 20th cent... Some project much like the Hale index (WPA project) but that included photos of each stone. Suppose we must take what we can get.
