Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired businessman who enjoys genealogy as a hobby. I find that genealogy and "Find a grave" go hand in hand and its easy to do both at the same time and both are very rewarding.In adding Memorials for those in my family I have added memorials for many non-relatives in hope that it will help others as others have helped me. If I've submitted a relative of yours and you would like it transferred to you, just ask. I live in the Omaha metro area and thats where most of my photos were taken.Researching Bender, Ausdemore,Hittner, German,Ternus, Bockholt, Hatzenbuehler, Kramer, Wickelman and many others. Most of My family came from Germany in the Mid 1800s and settled in the North Eastern Nebraska German farming comunities and spread from there.In my research if I run across a grave of someone in the Military that is Killed in Action they get special attention and i try to find out as much as i can about them and put it on the Memorial. We owe it to these Heros and they should not be forgotten.I authorize anyone to use my photos for any reason."Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you." ~~~Princess Diana

RE: PVT Lloyd Theil
Thanks, Lloyd was one of my cousins. I like to stop by and take a few pictures when I am on vacation. The new app really makes it easier to see who has requested them.

My pleasure. He was just hanging out by the fence and very easy to find.

RE: Lt Alvin Beethe
No, I live in KCMO but because of my interest in the situation and being a very distant relative, I flew out there just for the day. It was my first trip and it was incredibly moving.

Lt. Beethe burial
Loren, I posted a new photo from Lt. Alvin Beethe's burial at Arlington on Monday on Lt. Beethe's memorial. It was an incredibly moving yet exhilarating service. There were many photos I could have posted but chose the one with the band in front of the procession symbolizing full military honors.
