Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived in the Tampico and Prophetstown, IL communities all my life. I like to walk through cemeteries, so figured I might as well do some useful work while I'm there.

I have been a church secretary for the past 25 years and worked at a church with a cemetery next to it. I just retired from this job and hope to have more time for findagrave.

I think Findagrave is a great tool for genealogy!

RE: Photo Request for William Brydia
Thanks, I understand that taking photos can be difficult at times. My wife and I use an umbrella for shade sometimes. I have others have used mirrors to light monuments that were too shady. I haven't tried that one yet. Will check back later. Thanks again.

RE: Photo Request for William Brydia
I understand. It is sometimes very difficult to get a good photo. When my wife and I go we will sometimes yes an umbrella to shade the monument. Other times the monument is shaded and we cannot get a bright enough shot. I have seen others say that they take a mirror to reflect sunlight onto the monument but we have not tried that yet. Thanks again. I will check back again in a few months.

Catherine Baum # 32940632
I notice that you are showing a maiden name of Emrich for Catherine Baum. She is a possibility as a collateral ancestor in my Lawrence family, and I am interested to find out more about her to see if I have the right Catherine Baum. I was wondering about the name Emrich and if you could please direct me to your source? It would be most helpful to me. Thanks so much!!
