Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ahoy!
Being a forensic anthropologist, geographer and having taught geology, I greatly enjoy the treasure hunt of genealogy. If you have a document written in old German text, I may be able to help with it's transcription. Two of my favorite lifetime hobbies have been researching families for friends and searching (with divine guidance!) -- for years and using every resource available -- to finally reunite adoptees with their birth families. My norm at home is to have a steaming cup of licorice tea on my desk, Irish fiddle music playing in the background, and three snoring yellow Labradors surrounding my chair.

Each GPS location edit I submit for a memorial page is verified by me to be accurate and coincide with the aerial satellite view of GoogleMaps, which takes the viewer directly to the gravesite. I have visited these locations in order to take grave marker photographs and determine GPS coordinates. Any other edits I submit for memorials are thoroughly researched, with source documentation saved and available upon request.

Please help out your photo volunteers by obtaining the specific plot information from the cemetery office (if there is one) and adding it to your request. Some cemetery offices will only do look-ups for relatives; others will respond fastest to a relative who emails or calls the cemetery office.

These are SO important! Why? Because grave markers (and even entire cemeteries) can disappear over time. Photographs can be lost. Web sites can lose their memory. The cloud can rain on us. But the most important reason is one most people never consider. It is this: Many people who are blind or living with low vision are using the Windows text reading program, which reads text from their computer monitor, word-for-word, to them (Please do try it! All Windows operating systems come stock with this feature, and it's the coolest!). If there is no transcription of a grave marker on a memorial, those with vision problems are exempt from knowing what is recorded on the grave marker. A transcription takes only a few minutes to type and post; please take the time to transcribe the words and perhaps write a few words about descriptive features of the marker at the time you post a photograph. Those few minutes taken now to transcribe and post may mean everything in the years to come.

May sunshine fill your life, kindness follow you through all your days, invisible Irish blessings shower you with healthy living, and sweet chocolate always be on your menu for dessert!
Kind regards,
Bridey Light

Kinzers and Oberkonz
There are no more memorials for the Kinzer's. It's possible that they are in unmarked graves. I can not find any Oberkonz's in Ross county, Again they may be in unmarked graves. There are two Obear's, a Fred and an Anabell.

Hello! I wanted you to have this information. I will go out this weekend for a picture of the site.

I, too, was adopted. I wish the best with connecting searches.

Boutin Family
Thanks for your message. I'll try to fulfill the Boutin photo requests.

The Boutin family was a historical, influential family in the Bayfield WI area. So I'm familiar with them. If you ever make it to Bayfield, and stop by the local museum (called the Bayfield Heritage Association), I think they have some things that pertain to the Boutins.

Thank you for all your efforts

Yes, this was a great stone. Thank you for the wonderful photos and extra effort. I am in Wisconsin so helping me with my California roots is so greatly appreciated!
