Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native Omahan, I attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln where I majored in music education (trombonist), minored in social studies and nurtured a great love of American history.

A master's degree in performance at Manhattan School of Music in Trombone and Conducting, followed by a doctor of education in music at Columbia University in New York, prepared me for a musical career in Broadway Theatre, Radio City Music Hall Orchestra, name bands and symphonic concert performance in New York and later as Director of Bands at Temple University in Philadelphia.

Doctoral research on the bands of 18th and 19th century Italy prepared me for later historical research and eventually led me to develop a "passion" for genealogy.

I have been particularly interested in creating, and adding to records, on findagrave for the Herbert family (with variation of Harbert) to which I currently can trace to Fayette Co, Pennsylvania in the early 1800's. My mother's family, the Perkins, lived in Hampton, NH in 1630, and produced numerous patriots, serving in every War on American soil until WWII.

I look forward to adding historical elaboration on both the Herbert and Perkins families for findagrave. I welcome suggestions and comments.

I have made the links to his parents. Would you like me to transfer his memorial?

RE: Herberts
Submitted info on Ethel this morning. I don't know how the Find a Grave information tree works, so thought I'd email directly.
I'm sure I have the right site, and Lincoln Memorial Park says she is buried in the park. There is no marker, but the site is next to Walter, so assume she is buried there.
Hope this helps.

Jim --
I just looked at your bio.
What a career you've had! I'm impressed.
Just wanted you to know I may have stumbled upon some other of your family. Think I saw some Harberts while looking for John and Clara. I'll check it out if you think they might be related.

RE: Herbert graves in Lincoln
Hello, Jim --
Thanks for your note. I think I may be looking for another of your family members in the next week -- close to Walter, name of Ethel?
Anyway, glad I could help. I got involved with Find a Grave after a friend who does a lot of genealogy work sent me a photo of the headstone from a favorite great uncle, buried in Rolla, MO.
Now I have time to help and am just a couple of blocks from Lincoln Memorial Park. They don't have a public index. Fortunately, you had the grave site numbers, which really helped.
You are a long way from Husker Nation. I came back to Lincoln a year ago after 20 years in Casper, WY. I grew up in Lincoln -- LNE Class of '63 -- also lived in Jacksonville, FL, Henderson, KY, McCook, NE, Elizabeth City, NC.
No relatives in Philadelphia, but thanks. Five generations of my family -- including my parents, grandparents, my husband and son, aunts, uncles, cousins -- are buried in Syracuse, NE. Haven't investigated more yet, but in my plans.

I did upgrade Jane Andersons memorial. I could not find any other information on her or family.

The Harberts
Hello again, checked into your suggestion and although I entered memorial for Mary I did not link Nancy to this memorial. This contributor did Virtual Cemetery (#46528272) I did however add Ebenezer as per your suggestion.
You may want to contact this other contributer and tell them what you told me. I cant remove someone elses link. They should delete and add you correct info...................Justin
