Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy finding out about my family history and helping others with genealogy searches.

Families I am interested in are:
Cvetic, Cvetich, Svetic, Svetich, Swetic, Swetich, Swetish, Getzan, Getzen, Gasparovich, Sweet, Ribnikar, Sholer, Hodge, and Flett.

My Grandfather, Joseph, and his sibs; John, Matt, and Ann (Gasparovich) lived in Calumet MI after coming from Lukovdol, Croatia (1890's). Their last name was Cvetic, and their parents were Pavao Cvetic + Mara (Grguric). At various times they used Cvetich, Svetich, Svetish, Swetich, Swetish, and who knows what else. My grandfather legally changed his name, in Chicago in the '20s, to Sweet.

RE: John Hodge at ANC
Not a problem. I think you're right, an admin removed them. Thanks for checking it out.

John Hodge at ANC
Please delete the two photos that you posted of the headstone for John and Lydia Hodge at Arlington National. Findagrave does not allow the posting of photos from other websites, including the ANC Locator photos (this is stated as photos are posted, as well as in their FAQs). I have submitted photos of the headstone for the two of them, which will be on their memorials once fg admins approve them.

Thank you.

Brooks Cemetery
Hi Jim!

According to that is the exact location. I would to know how many headstones are still standing. I really would appreciate any pictures if headstones you can get. You can email me directly.

Thank you so much!

Sweet family
Our family name is derived of the french "sucre"
as in sucrose. My grandfather was born in Orillio, Canada just west of Toronto. Moved to MI for the lumbering industry, stayed because of the auto industry. That was a long time ago, I just turned 71 last week.....Regards, Dave

RE: Swetish tombstone pictures
Hi Jim. Also near the family plot (and appeared to be with the group) was an Adam Chingo, I took a picture of his grave in case you wanted that (he's not listed on findagrave for that cemetery?). Elsewhere in the cemetery I also came across a Francis Swetish Ozanich and Edward Ozanich, neither of those are listed as being in the cemetery either...I've got those pictures also. Just let me know if you want them.

RE: Alice Jennings Poulos 116522902
I may have, I will look through my pictures and see. If not, I will take one the next time I get that direction.
I really don't have anyone in Indianapolis. My family is all in Minnesota and Wisconsin, but thanks for the offer.
