Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in genealogy for a few years specializing in preserving family photos in digital format and publishing family history books.

I feel it is important to preserve family history and make it readily available for others to pursue.

My mission is to capture, store and disseminate family history before it disappears forever, enabling others to expand on it. I strive to leave each memorial better than I found it.

At Find A Grave I specialize in enhancing existing memorials (both mine and hundreds of others) with dates/locations, bios, photos and links making them "come to life". I care about the "value added" outcome and use that as my guide. Of course, my first priority is accuracy and will gladly correct my mistakes.

You may request corrections, additions or links to any of my limited memorials in any way you wish to contact me. I will transfer a memorial if they are family, you have information to add and will be a responsive caretaker of the memorial.

In any event, I will treat you with the respect you deserve and always answer your questions.

Baby Boy Strusz - 80057608
Dear Mr. Diercks
Find A Grave - Baby Boy Strusz - memorial 80057608

Would you be willing to update the above memorial on Find A Grave? He is my uncle. Of course, I never met him as he was still born. My mother is his younger sister.

My request is to add his father and mother.
Father - H. Otto Strusz - memorial - 79578084
Mother - Lillian Emilia Bremer-Strusz - memorial 79578161

Alternatively, you could transfer the memorial to me and I would update it. My contributor number is 48308423

Thank you

RE: James Allan Toothaker
You are welcome. I made another attempt to find Charles and Ruth today, but no success. Too much snow. Will attempt again after a thaw.

Penny Linder
Peter C. Carstens
Hi Wayne, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Penny Linder, my maiden name is Carsten. My father was Ervin O. Carsten. The youngest of John H. and Matilda S. Carsten(s). I noticed while reading of my great grandfather that my father wasn't mentioned. I can only imagine that is because he hadn't been born when that writing was printed. My father was born June 23, 1924. I don't know if that is something you can add on under Peter Carstens or not.

RE: M. Joseph Howlett
Thanks for sending the article, Wayne. I also added his obituary, which along with his death record list his name as Joseph Micheal Howlett, so I made that adjustment as well.

RE: You're the Best!
Thanks Wayne. It's a pleasure working with you. But I have to give a lot credit to John Dalby. The Dalby Database is an incredible resource.
