Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began my interest in our family tree with a fifth grade science fair project on genealogy. My parents got involved and helped interview other relatives, gather facts and photos, etc. The project included a paper mâché family tree with little green leaves representing my ancestors, each with names and dates printed on them. It won second place in the science fair and we were all really proud of it.

Afterward my folks continued the research by visiting their own birth places in Indiana and Florida, as well as those of our ancestors there and beyond. They researched in libraries and cemeteries, attended family reunions, and so on. Thirty years later I have picked up the project again, only now I have a renewed interest in showing this to my own children, and also in researching my wife's rich family history.

RE: Regina Albert
My pleasure. It's a lovely cemetery and not too far from Amish country--worth a visit some day!

Regina Albert
I did the best I could. This is a very old graveyard (headstones in German!) and the engraving is very faded and mossy. I am pretty sure this is the gravestone of the longer-living Regina Albert. There are Sheaffers in this graveyard but I couldn't verify markers with the names you requested. I may try again. Different light always helps.

RE: Scheaffers
You are very welcome. I am going to go back and try to find the others. I found a listing on the internet for the cemetery, but some of the stones are very worn and many broken

Swafford & Booker Grave Markers
JMR,

Hey thanks for the pictures of the grave markers. You wouldn't happen to be related to the Bookers or Swaffords are you? There is kind of a mystery in the family that we are curious about. If I can ever return the favor here in Yreka, CA just let me know.

Thanks again,

Teri LeMere

I am so happy to have this photo and I really appreciate everything you have done to get these for me. I cannot thank you enough and I am very grateful, knowing how old these graves are. My birthday is Nov 1--so these are my gifts!

Thank you,
