Bio and Links
Bio Photo MY HOBBIES INCLUDE PHOTOGRAPHY, GARDENING, SCRAPBOOKING, GENEALOGY, AND GOING TO ANTIQUE SHOWS WHERE I COLLECT VINTAGE LADIES' GOWNS FROM THE LATE 1800'S, ALONG WITH ANY OTHER TREASURE THAT CATCHES MY EYE.

I REALLY STARTED TO RESEARCH MY FAMILY TREE WHILE I WAS STILL IN COLLEGE- WHICH DIDN'T GIVE ME MUCH TIME. I WANTED TO RECORD THE STORIES MY PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS HAD TOLD ME SO THAT THEY WOULD ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED. LUCKY FOR ME I CAME ACROSS SCRAPS OF PAPER WITH FAMILY NOTES ON THEM, AS WELL AS TONS OF PHOTOGRAPHS! I FEEL THAT IT IS MY JOB TO ORGANIZE AND PROTECT THESE FAMILY HEIRLOOMS SO THAT THEY CAN BE PASSED DOWN TO THE NEXT GENERATION.

MY PRIMARY PATERNAL LINES I'M RESEARCHING INCLUDE STRETZ, BRENNEISEN, SCHECHTER, GOLDSTEIN, GRIMES, NIELSEN, OLSON, LOWENGRIMM, JOHNSON, STRICKFADEN, SCHUSTER, GANTNER, AND REITER.

MY PRIMARY MATERNAL LINES I'M RESEARCHING INCLUDE TOY, RUDOLPH, BROWN, SMITH, LININGER, TETER, RITCHIE, AND WARDEN.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO VIEW MY FAMILY MEMBERS I HAVE POSTED SO FAR, I STILL HAVE A LOT MORE TO ADD-

kempf, fyi
I noticed that you indicated you were related to Jerome Kempf, # 77387230, and thought you might be interested in knowing that I linked his son Jerry, # 132464040, to him. Jerry passed on Saturday.

WikiTree
Do you use WikiTree? I have posted what I know of the family tree on there, but I'm sure you have lots more to add if you care to join the project. It's a free website.

RE: Reunion!
I'll be out of town that weekend, unfortunately. I don't have any pictures, but I can ask my dad. Do you have a digital version of one of those 2 pictures? It would help us know who we are looking for because some of the old pictures that have been passed down aren't labeled with names so we don't know who's who.

RE: Home in Boonville
Exploring local investors for historic properties while working with financing. Haven't given up on owning this inspiring property.

RE: Stretz
Yep, I sure am! Sophia was my great, great grandmother.

I go out to SSPP cemetery regularly to work on cleaning up the historic stones and those of my family members. I recently did Johann Stretz (#42370423) and posted a new picture to the page you have for him. I clean according to the VA standards so don't worry about me causing damage to our family members' stones.

Thank you for all your work getting Stretz records online!

Are we related?
I see you are researching Stretz, Schuster, and Reiter. I have these names in my tree as well. I'm guessing we are related somehow. I'm a descendent of Franz and Magdalena Stretz, then Francis and Margaret Schuster. Are they in your tree as well?

Schechter
I tried to find the grave markers for Louis Schechter and Rivka Schechter, but they were not listed in Rose Hill's plot book. If you can find the plot locations, I can get the pics for you.
