Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a sporadic genealogist that researches in fits and spurts. Glad to be of whatever help I can, even if I'm not the speediest at it!

I have been blessed with members on each side of my family who have blazed my personal genealogical trail. My maternal grandmother, Evelyn Mae Orr Kraemer, researched the Orr branch in the 60s/70s, seeding my interest in my family tree. She self-published a book of all her research in 1974, and I can still spend hours pouring over the history of people I have never met, but are still responsible for my existence.

My paternal great-uncle, Bill Sillin, was also a genealogist who did a large (like, really, really large) amount of research on the branch of Sillins that helped to pioneer Kansas. I am honored to have copies of his original family pages. I have probably only documented half of his work in my personal tree.

From this work comes my personal desire to maintain and update the records they both worked to accumulate. Find A Grave is one of the most useful tools I have found, providing dates, and other hints, to help me follow the trail.

RE: Ailes!
I guess that I have probably added more than I think I have. Like most things you add a little here and there; and the next thing you know it has become a bunch. Of course I will be glad to share my information. My intentions are good, but please be patient if I am slow.

RE: Frank Angerer
I found some more info on the Angerer's, which I added to his memorial - mostly links to other family members.

Who was your "husband's great great grandmother"? Your husband and I must be cousins.

You are more than welcome. I go to Mount Emblem often, wait a couple of months for the placement of the headstone and I will try to get a photo for you. Judy

Traipsing through cemeteries.
I am so glad that you do. I agree, it is FUN!

And, getting headstones on is such an
accomplishment! There were 59 M graves when I joined, now there are 105 M. I just cannot believe it. And, so many more to go. :)

Evelyn Chapman
Hello, Christine,
Thank you very much for getting me that wonderful picture of Evelyn's headstone. Evelyn was my dad's first cousin on the Swedish side of the family. :)

I think that I now have three, maybe four generations, linked to one another and I hope that all the pictures are up now. Thank you, again.
