Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 2008 I began researching my and my wife's family roots in earnest, knowing full well that someday my children and their children will be interest in knowing their heritage. Initially like the majority of the genealogists working online I was strictly a "FIND A GRAVE" user, until I realized its unlimited global potential.
This was the turning point that got me thinking that real ‘Family Biographies' needed to be told here. Therefore, my goal is to create meaningful linked ‘Family Memorials' honoring our ancestors that toiled so relentlessly in building these great lands that we fortunately now call HOME.

Faelchle in Teplitz cemetery

You created entries in Teplitz, Bessarabia. Did you reference a cemetery list or photos?

Thank you for the quick response to both of my emails! You have done a fantastic job with your family history. I am connected to your Sailer surnames through the Erbele and Boeckel surnames. Best Regards, Heide Becker Langenbeck

RE: Re: Anna Sayler
sorry about that

I should not multi task! I photographed the whole cemetery and did not find a photo of her plot as I sorted the 2000+ photos and added them to the relevant pages in this cemetery.

RE: Re: Edna (Bender) Littke
Hello DG,

You're most welcome! I wasn't sure if I should send it to you or not, since I saw that you had compiled a bio already on their behalf. Thanks very much for adding it.

I'm been meaning to reply to your earlier mail, but haven't until now. Thank you for sharing all this info with me! I'm sure it will be very useful!! It looks like you have made some overseas travels of cemeteries -- very interesting. :-) It will probably take me awhile to pour over everything. Thanks again for taking the time to email the info to me!

Happy New Year to you!

Kind regards,

Re: Edna (Bender) Littke
Hi Debbie,
Thank you very much for the obituary! Definitely makes Edna's memorial a whole lot more interesting.
If you choose to contact me directly I'll share info pertaining to the Germans from south Russia that I'm very certain will be of interest to you.
