I had never heard of Find A Grave until I chanced upon it while doing a generic internet search of my grandfather's name, and was happily surprised to see a picture of his grave marker. I was hooked and signed up. Since then, FaG has allowed me to see many family headstones and markers that I will probably never see in person, and has added several previously unknown details to my family's genealogy records. THANK YOU! to everyone who gives so much of their time and effort, just because, to people they've never even met.|
I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has left notes and flowers on my brother Kim's memorial page. Giving a moment of your time to do that means a lot to me.
MY GENEALOGY RESEARCH-
NAMES IN THE FAMILY TREE:
Andersdotter, Carlsdotter, Carlson, Cotnam, Deen, Edmunds, Haase, Haskins, Heidtmann, Hughes, Jonsson, Leonard, McCaw, McCreary, McGrath, Nilsson, Olmstead, Olson, Olsson, Omstead, Phillips, Reed, Siedentopp, Smith, Solberg, Sykes, Teets, Tisdale, Trede, Walker...so many more.
PLACES WHERE ANCESTORS SETTLED:
Massachusetts [1621!], New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska...
Ontario, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, Canada...
...and please don't hold this against me, but, California. A great place to visit, but NOT a great place in which to live. Get lost, Jerry, you're worse than Arnie.
IF SOME OF THESE NAMES AND PLACES ARE SIMILAR TO YOURS, maybe we have ancestors in common and can compare notes. They came from Ireland, Scotland, England, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Canada, and possibly Wales. Like most Americans, I am a certified mutt. But first and foremost, simply AMERICAN. There will be no hyphens in my identity to put question to my loyalty !!!

|Scott W||RE: Stanley Kavolski|
I don't recall which edits I proposed, but here's what I have found:
The California Death Index indicates he died in Los Angeles County, and also shows his social security number prefix as 138 - which was issued in New Jersey.
Both WWI & WWII Registration cards (matching name & birth date) state that he was born in Brooklyn, NY, while the 1920 Census as well as the registration cards show he was residing in New Jersey.
I have no connection with Mr. Kavolski. I have been looking through the "Application for Headstone or Marker" list in Ancestry.com to add or update burial locations for veterans who had markers issued and I'll do a basic search on them to add in obvious details.
Thanks for being cautious. My father is a veteran of WWII as well and I wouldn't want someone making wreckless changes to his online memorial. In most cases I'm finding that most of the applications I come across do not have a corresponding record in Find A Grave. Some, like this one, have just have dates, so I will try to add basic info if I'm reasonably confident of the information.

We are very familiar with Lytle Creek. For years we took our large families and friends and picnicked there. Sadly, in 1979, my 16 year old nephew, David Shaw, fell from the top of Bonita Falls. I don't believe any of our family went back there to picnic again. We had lots of very good times there and the kids loved it. We lived in Rialto. Thank you for leaving flowers for Robert. He was an adorable kid and we miss him.

|Jan Darby||McCauley Headstone Pictures|
Thanks so much for taking the McCauley headstone pictures. Interesting that the husband is buried elsewhere. Never knew that!
|Kelli Smith||RE: photo requests|
They are in section E28; grave 4 & 5.
Somewhere near the back of the cemetery!
I will be going tomorrow!
|Jim Anderson||Porter lot|
Your welcome. The cemetery in Assonet is an easy look. Some of the stones go waaaaaaay back. In your case the Porter lot has quite a few descendents interred there. The newer monument in the center replicates most of who is in the lot.The older stones are quite weathered.
I have family in MA,MI,WA,AZ,MN,WI.UK,IRE. My biggest problem is the name changing from Sweden/Norway. My last name is Anderson and believe it is derived from Anders/Andersdotter but don't know much about tracking them. They were a bunch of elusives. Have you had any luck tracing back to foreign countrys?
|Timothy Purnell||A Lovely Person|
It is most kind and gracious of you to leave such an inspiringly beautiful message for me. Whatever your interests in life your soul is indeed poetic and loved by Him.
May God bless you and your dear brother in spirit with radiant joy and peace always!
|Liane Bamburg||RE: Josephine Knee info|
