Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, I love to help people find their roots. Along with finding ancestors, people should find out where their loved ones are buried, or cremated. This will help to build up a database where others can connect and find new cousins and family members. This is about bringing people together and sharing information.

I have been researching the KRUSE family from old Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany, since 1999. I was able to discover the old church that had the family records in Neukirchen, near the Baltic Sea Coast, and 100 miles northwest of Berlin. The Hamburg Ship departure manifest in 1869 of the steamship "Allemannia" showed the old town of Viezen that carried my Great Grandfather John Kruse, his siblings, and his mother, my Great Great Grandmother Maria Jenning Kruse. The old church records date back into the 17th Century.

RE: Photo of Barnhart
Eldon and Minnie Barnhart were my mother's parents. I visited with them at odd intervals as a boy, and served as pallbearer for each. Have a nice day!

Carl A. Goers
HI: I'm sorry but I don't know who Carl's birth parents were. He wasn't living with the Goer's in 1900 but was in 1910. I added that he was their adopted son and put some of his records on his memorial. I inherited his memorial because I am working on a big project for the Farmington/Farmington Hills Library system...

Joseph Zimmer - 37077753
The best suggestion I have would be for you to contact St. Mary's Cemetery and have them check the records to see if this is the Joseph Zimmer you think he might be.

Hi since it is probably the same memorial make a note of it and then go into his (assuming thats where they are linked from) and delete all reference to a wife. If that doesn't work send a quick note to Edit and ask them to delete one of the references. I'm honestly not sure you can do it yourself but its worth a try. Gluck

I have been going through some of my older records and came across some memorials you had previously asked me to transfer to you. These were for William Hintz, Edna Boesche and George Kruse. I have now transferred them to you. Thank you for your patience.

I'll be happy to transfer him over to you once the duplicate that was created is deleted. Please let me know when that happens.

Hi Fritz,

I am sorry for the delay in the transfers you are requesting. Due to an extreme family emergency, I have not been able to check my computer as regularly as I would have liked and I am just getting to your message now. I will be away for an extended amount of time and will not be able to check back for a while.

Regarding transfers, I usually have no problem with a transfer as long as they are not someone in my family tree. And by family tree, I mean all those connected to not only myself, but to those that I am related to.

Some of the Kruse family members are intertwined with some of my very distant ancestors but it seems they are more closely related to you.

I will transfer the two memorials that you asked for individually (John Kruse and Catherine Kruse Hintz), but I generally do not transfer bulk surname requests. Each request needs to be made separately from the memorial, itself, and should typically include your member number to make transfers easier.

Thank you for your patience.

Forth Transfer
Thank you for the request for a transfer of the Forth's. At this time I do not plan to transfer either of these memorials as they are out of required guidelines and I am distantly related. I would be happy to add any information you would like. Which of their children is your gg grandparent? According to my records Robert was married 3 times and had 25 children so there are a lot of descendants of this line.
