Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am still new to the whole genealogy thing. I have only been doing for about 15 years. I am hoping that my children will continue the search.

My Paternal Great Grand father and Mother came from Scotland (but met in Illinois) and my Maternal Family is from Connecticut from the 1652ish. I am in the St. Louis, MO area.

I am working on the Stewart, Robertson, Sage and English Families currently.

Photography is relaxing for me...so I take photos and add them. There is cemetery that I am working on that across the street from my children's school. If you want one of my photos, that is fine, but I do want credit. I however would prefer that they are not added to Ancestry. It is more that you might credit me, but the person that acquires it from you might not.


PLEASE -Turn on your messages. You are missing out on A LOT of info that people may want to share with you.

Please remember, when you start researching a new geographic area, that those living in the area, probably know more than you, but there are some that don't. Like St. Louis City and St. Louis County are very separate, but very connected. Please look at an actual map that has city and county boarders, that is dated for that era, NOT a current map. For example, much of what is warehouses now by river, used to be housing.

Thank you.

Just another twig in the tree.

RE: StL Jacob Bender
Hi Kathie,

I did find a picture of Jacob and Anna Bender using billiongraves.com. Thanks! It's a good enough picture for me so don't worry about trying to get me one. I really appreciate all of your help and suggestions.

RE: StL Jacob Bender
Hi Kathie,

Thanks for the info! Yes, I did find out about the free death certificates, and yes, the Jacob Bender for 1932 is my grandfather. This was quite a shock as I was told he died much, much earlier! I also know that this grave for Jacob is correct and also that my grandmother Anna should be with him. Again, a big shock!

Thanks for the interest. I've just started my searching, but without many names and dates,don't know how far I will get.

I live in Texas, so don't know if I will ever get to the cemetery, that's why I would like a picture.

Thanks again,
Debbie

RE: Charles Capra @ StL Calavry
Hi Kathie,

Thank you so much for trying. I'm glad you did take a picture of the area where this greave most likely is. That's something I try to do when I cannot locate the exact spot & there is no marker. Have a wonderful week!

Alma Monsarrat
Wanted to let you know we both ended up deleting our memorials for Alma. I emailed and asked if I should make the memorial or if the other person wanted to make it - not hearing anything and not finding a new memorial to her I made one, #135883316 - and linked her to husband and parents. I then informed the person of what I did. So hopefully there will be no more duplicates for her.

I will be putting in a photo request for both her and her husband's markers.

Thanks for your help with this.

Melinda
