Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been in this business for almost 16years and find myself learning something new on a daily basis. I originally researched only my family's roots however I soon found that my talents could assist others in their quest for knowledge.

Any information on my memorials is either my own or taken from public historical documents. If you are on a memorial with a photo I took, then please ask me if you can use the photo. Thanks!

If you would like assistance with your genealogy or more information on any of the individuals in my database, then please e-mail me!

Carrie Palicka at Saint Adalbert
I looked at the burial record for Section 6-Block A-Lot 51. The only Palicka buried there is a Corrine Palicka that died in 1935 at age 6.
Their is no one in that plot that died in 1955. if this is the correct Palicka her parents are:
Frank James Palicka. mother is Lillian Burianek. They were divorced before the 1930 census. There is a monument at that location I will try and photograph on my next trip to Saint Adalbert Cemetery.

Hi, I received your request to add his middle name Frederick, but couldn't confirm it. What is your source? Thanks for sharing.

Charlotte Crawford Dare
Hi there...I'm so glad to find this memorial to Charlotte Blanche Crawford who d. 1975 in River Forest, IL. She was a cousin of my mother and her siblings. My family grew up in Oak Park, and I heard about this girl and her mother since I was a child, but we never met her. In 1969 my folks moved from Oak Park to River Forest, and I'm shocked now to find that she died in River Forest. I only started genealogy in 1982. Finding Find a Grave has been great for me, and my Ancestry membership. Would you allow me to copy this picture to my Ancestry database for Charlotte Crawford Dare? Perhaps others you've taken that pertain to this family that I've not yet found? I would give credit to you as "GeneaProtector" -- or not. So sad these cousins (my mother and her) did not know each other. My mother's mom lived with her Aunt Ida Pond (grandmother of Charlotte) for a few years in Blandinsville, IL. Small world. Thanks. Joann.

Barbara Keller Riehm and Michael Riehm

My 3x great grandparents are Barbara and Michael Riehm. Memorial #'s 100089020 and 100089028. I noticed on the photo's that these were new headstones throughout the cemetery. Barbara's shows her's in front of the old memorial. Could you tell how all this came about and are there any existing photo's of the original headstones or memorial?.
The new headstones definitely make things easier to read and I appreciate seeing them.
Their daughter Sophia Riehm married Otto Horner and they moved to Minn Sophia's memorial # is 162354819. I have a photo request for their memorial's.
Thank you for your lovely memorials for my great great great grandparents.
