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.
Working to honor our Ancestral Pioneers by bringing their Families together!

RE: Tillie Dennis
Appreciate the offer to share. It would overwhelm me. Prefer to leave the research part to those more patient than me. Not related, and my Czech heritage keeps me overwhelmed enough.

Tillie Dennis

Hi thanks for the edits, wondering if you are related to the family or if you have expanded beyond to other people seeking info.

You're welcome! Uncle Burt and each of his wives were very special people.

Elisabeth Schmidt Keller
Hi ~ Thank you for doing the edits for Elizabeth Keller. I love seeing families being linked here. It makes it so much easier to trace ancestors. Elizabeth was my mother's (Esther Schindler Gruneich) aunt -- my maternal grandmother Susanna Schmidt Schindler's sister. I have just started tracing her siblings, but do know that one of my mother's cousins was Lydia (Theo.) Keller Bender. I assume you are probably a relative :). Feel free to contact me at

RE: Re: Elmer J Bender
Hi Dennis,
You're most welcome. You had emailed me earlier with some tools and genealogical information, which I am keeping on file. Thank you very much!


Re: Elmer J Bender
Hi Debbie,
Thank you very much for the info pertaining to Elmer's spouse.
If you choose to contact me directly I have several items pertaining to the Germans from south Russia that very likely will be of interest to you.

Gottlieb and Barbara Sayler
DG -

First of all I want to thank you so much for sharing so much of the wonderful family history on findagrave. Your research and your bios are so appreciated.

On the memorial for Gottlieb Sayler (# 29118431) you have a family photo posted that I am assuming is Gottlieb and his wife, Barbara, and one of their children. Do you know who the child is or approximately the year of the photo? Thanks for any info.

Sailer memorials
Hi DG,

You can keep the Sailer memorials I transferred to you. I will transfer back the one for Christina. I have no connection to them.

Faelchle in Teplitz cemetery

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

RE: Re: Emma (Sailer) Tabbert
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.
