Bio Photo Hello friends,
My name is Jean-Louis Vijgen from the Netherlands.
I,m 56 years and living near the American, Cemetery and Memorial, in Margraten in the most southern part of Holland.
I,m a amateur researcher to soldiers died and buried U.S.from the WW2.
I had adopted some graves from the American War Cemetery's over here, but had to let them go.
From researching those heroes, i have made a page on Facebook to give the crosses a face and story.
With (Big) help from the States, Rolland Swank for the "Fly Boys"and Terry Hirsch for the Parents and Siblings and more Info about the Soldiers.

RE: Major Victor J. Maleski
Hello Jean-Louis,
Yes I do have a very large family. My paternal GGGF had 29 children between two wives. Those poor women! They did not all live, but there were enough boys to carry the name along. My family came from France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Ireland and England, all at different times, and settled in Pennsylvania. When I'm researching, if I come across someone's memorial and they're missing information, when I come across their details, I will submit the data to Find A Grave. It's my way of contributing to all the work that others have done for my families. All the best to you and happy hunting.

Thank you Jean-Louis for all the work you've done. It's an amazing task and very much appreciated by all of the families, that lost members during the war. All the best!

RE: George F. Smith
I found the request for a military headstone for George on Ancestry and added him to FindAGrave. Here is the link to his page:

I requested a photo so I won't forget.

RE: George F. Smith
Do you have his date of birth or date of death? That would help a lot since there are 8 George Smith's listed on FindAGrave for that cemetery.

RE: George F. Smith
Hi Jean Louis,

The North Hardyston Cemetery is at I'm not sure if you can't find the cemtery on FindAGrave or you are simply asking for me to take photos. I don't see any photo requests for this cemetery from you.

I can do a photo request for you or you can request a photo yourself. If you want me to do it, I need to know the name of the person who's grave you want photographed.

It may take some time to get to the cemetery to take the photo, but I will be living very close to this cemetery in another month or so.

I will do what I can to help.
