Bio and Links
After working 25 years for a local school district, I finally am finding myself with some time that will allow me to persue my love of genealogy. One of the best sources I have found to gain more knowledge about our ancestors is their headstones. Often the clues, such as names and dates and maiden names and children that we find on the headstones provide enough information to continue our research in a more methodical manner. I hope to photograph and post as many pictures from Wyoming Co, Pennsylvania cemeteries as time allows in an effort to aid other researchers who do not live in this area. Please feel free to use any of the photos I have posted to enhance your own genealogy research.

You added an article for Oscar to his memorial in the Era Cemetery, Cooke Co TX. Unfortunately, I have a hard time reading it. Would it be possible for you to email a copy to me? Oscar is a cousin.

RE: Thank You For All the Soldiers You Have Added
Sylvia, Thank you very kindly for all your kind words, it is wonderful people like yourself that keep me going on with my work. There are a lot of people out there that do not know that after the Civil war there was over 147,000 unknown soldiers buried over many battlefields. I will never get all of them, but will do my best get as many as I can. And will also keep adding those that I find in cemeteries that have markers, and are known. Thank you once again, your note to me made my day,I am going to hang on to it as a remainder to keep working. Thank you,Ted

RE: 74073241
Sylvia --

Gabriel was born in HUNGARY ["Austria" is NOT Germany - back then the country WAS the "Austro-Hungarian Empire" - the killing of their grand duke is what started WW One]

Please begin to CORRECT your Family's delusion that your "ancestors came from Germany" ... They did NOT.

Your Family and my Family came from Men and Women who were SERBIAN-by-Blood and HUNGARIAN-by-Birth. Gabe's grand-parents spoke German -- but they were originally from Serbia who fled to Hungary !

Like my heritage, your heritage is NOT German !

Since this immigrant Branch of my Family Tree had its name adapted for them -- here are the Find-a-Grave Memorials [Siblings: Gabriel # 74073241 - John # 94255518 - Carolina # 66645095 - Alexander # 62405237 + Parents: Amelia # 66644793 - Daniel # 66780616]

Let me know if your Branch is having a BBQ or gathering and I'll attempt the drive again. Thanks for linking Lucy and Gabe with the above Family. Cousin ellie / g'g'ma ellie in Joisey
