Nancy Brenner |
I am so pleased to find the members on Find-a-Grave that have a passion for searching out the many gravesites and other information and then taking the time to post it for others to see. I have been fortunate to find a few family members to get me started. In an effort to give back and say thanks, I have just begun to claim requests as a Find-a-Grave volunteer. I find it rewarding... but as many seasoned members tell me... it is addictive.
While adding information for others, I am building my family tree and looking for any information on the Brenner and Viertel's who came to Brooklyn and Middle Island, New York from Germany. I am also looking for Rouse, Holbert, Draper, Meadows, and Jackson families in and around Jackson, Barrow, Hall, Old Gwinnett, and Ogelthorpe Counties in Georgia.
We are also building my husband's family tree which includes the Gandy, Henderson, Gainey and Huston families in Florida from Tampa to NW FL panhandle and into Alabama.
I look forward to helping others find their hidden family. Happy hunting...

Retired, dont work, on the computer, except when on one of our photo trips. Great hobby, wife and I enjoy very much. Almost got my new computer together. Also work on computers as a hobby.

I first saw the books at the Gwinnett Historical Society in Lawrenceville, then at Conyers Library and Covington Library. The most were over in Covington. Nice setup there. I bought the last two that they had for Barrow and Walton County from GHS. They are out of print. The others, most are out of print, have showed up on eBay no less and flea markets. ;-)

Several Historical Societies put out books on the cemeteries located in their county. Some books are like a telephone book listing all deceased alphabetically identifying the cemetery they are buried in. Others are listed by Cemetery, Section and Row. Of the 155 counties in Ga I have a couple dozen of them. This has helped us locate the graves when we went out looking for "Photo Requests".
Best regards, Bud

Nancy, could you tell me where these loved ones are buried? so I might make aclear decision.
|Arleen Koello||RE: Viertel Find-A-Grave|
Transferred them over to you.
I have 1 relative who died in the Civil war but can not find his cemetery NW of Atlanta in Collinsville, AL.
What is his name?

When you get any name in the Winder area I have the cemetery book for Barrow County. Easy to look em up for you. Bud

Did he get his dinner/lunch?
I retired 22 years ago next month and wife joined me in 2000. We have covered a lot of ground from Palatka, FL to Fitchburg. Mass and a whole lot of places in between. Those were mine, her's are in WV and Va., but go way back, 1627 in Jamestown, and that has been really interesting. If you have more you are looking for around the area east of Atlanta let me know. I have net friends that send us all over between Stone Mountain and Watkinsville. We love exploring.
The very best to you and all yours, Bud.

Hi there Nancy.
Welcome to Find A Grave. Hope you can enjoy your quest here. I have been a little discouraged by some of the folks here, but on the most part it has been very fun and productive for my wife and I. Also, be careful, it is addicting.
Happy Researching, Bud and Vicky Sue.
