Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching genealogy since 1981 for my family and everyone else.

I will be happy to go out around the local graveyards here in Elkhart County,Indiana and take pictures of graves for people.

Update on my participation~~January 2014

I didn't realize I have been a member for 7 years now. Even if you don't see activity on my family's memorials or I have not added memorials to Find A Grave, I am still very much active in cemeteries around my county and researching my family's genealogy. Don't be shy in contacting me. I will respond quickly to any communications.

I hope the rest of the Find A Grave members will respect this and when I reach out, they will respond to me also. I have been noticing, not many respond to my queries as they used to do years before..especially the ones who only accept public comments. Maybe they have too many memorials to look after, or they gave up a long time ago trying to make sense out of what they have contributed.

Just my observations as I watch Find A Grave grow.

On a side note: I am a member of the William Tuffs Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Elkhart County, Indiana. If you need any help in documenting your REV WAR Ancestor (or info on anyone else who lived in Elkhart County for that matter) drop me a line and I will try and help.

RE: Dora Hruby
Hi Beth. I can not be sure of the connections you mentioned, but I would be happy to get any photos for you if they could help verify your connections. My dad is buried there and it is 35-40 minutes from my home. My Hruby connection is through the Martinek-Tozil and Touzil Hruby. Frantisca Martinek (my great aunt) married Anton Touzil. Their daughter Otillia Touzil, married William Hruby. Kathy

RE: Harriet Willes Yancey
I was in the cemetery fulfilling another photo request and I photographed headstones that were in the vicinity that didn't have a memorial photo.

Your Welcome. No I am not. I have started taking photos for the St. Lawrence County Historical Association.

Daniel Mikel
I just saw you have a photo for Daniel Mikel posted. Thank you very much for doing this. Do you happen to have a higher resolution one that you could e-mail me? When I take them, I take in much higher resolution than I can post in generally so was hoping that maybe you did the same. When I attempt to zoom in on this picture, it blurrs almost instantly.

Either way, I appreciate your contributions to Find A Grave! THANKS! Lois
