Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live on the North Side of Chicago and one of my ongoing projects is photographing every family grave in the Chicago area. Initially, most of the memorials I added to this site were my own relatives and related families. Recently, I've branched out and now I am focused on the Kashubian families of early St. Josaphat's parish in Chicago.

Regarding my photos:

Please DO NOT post any of my photos onto your tree without first asking permission!! [I am an Ancestry member, user name tesseractme, and many of the photos posted here are already available on my public tree.]

I give permission for anyone to use my GRAVE PHOTOS ONLY on their personal website or blog with one condition: please do give credit. If you want to use portraits please ask permission first.

Regarding transfers:

If I have added someone to whom you are related and I am not, I will happily transfer the memorial to you. If we are both related to the person, I would very much like to discuss the family and see whether we can learn more from one another.

PLEASE NOTE that I will sometimes be away from this site for several weeks at a time, but I will ALWAYS respond to messages, SAC's, transfer requests, etc. as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has helped me on this site, but especially to the very friendly and helpful volunteers in Portage County, Wisconsin and in Franklin County, Arkansas!

I have a feeling you are related to this family since you have them on a virtual cemetery. Where did you get the middle name of May? We have her name as Martha. This is my sister-in-laws family.

RE: Frank Kamin plot photo
FYI: Sarah Derr #138678552 is buried in the same plot. I'm not sure if there is a connection or individual graves sold. I took a photo of her headstone. Txs for your message - Blessings.

My apologies for taking so long to process. I never got notification from Find A Grave. I just happened to see them when I logged on. Thank you so much for the updates!

RE: Franziska Klein Abraham
The info came with the memorial, although there is a genealogy on familysearch that lists sources.

See below.
Sources listed by the person listed below.

Also, take a look at Frances' info there for more source info.

Hope this helps!

Would love to know if you find any connection.

Best of luck in your search.
