Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family tree since 1999. The primary branches are PODBOY/PODBOJ, ROK, PECARO/PECORARO, BORRIS, and SCHULTZ/SCHUBELTOWSKI. I love locating family members and reconnecting with the past.

Amazing similarities exist between humans of different races, colors and beliefs. The similarities that join us far outweigh the differences that separate us. There is unity within our diversity.

My objectives on Findagrave are to link family members, add obits or biographies, provide grave or crypt locations and -- with the assistance of countless volunteers (my angels!) -- include photos of final resting places. I strive for quality, not quantity.

Up until the summer of 2014, I tried to visit each memorial I created (plus others that related to them in some way) on birth and death dates to commemorate the event. It was my honor and privilege to do so. Unfortunately, life stepped into the mix and I could no longer devote the time it took to keep up with the task. Perhaps one day I can resume the practice.

If you find any errors or have additional information (dates or places, etc.), please let me know. And if you have photos of any of the people remembered on these pages, feel free to upload them.

Patti. Sorry, I removed your photo request for Edward Koener. I posted a photo for someone else on Edward's memorial. I have claimed the request for Evelyn and will get both on my next trip to Queen. Judy

RE: John & Adelaide Cushing, Dennis & Margaret Davoren
Patti,
No problem. BTW, John Wagner and his wife Mary were kitty corner from the Davorens. You requested photos of Wagners in the area and they were pretty close. Maybe they're on your tree.

THANK YOU
Patti,
I would like to "THANK YOU" for all the help you've given me in the last few years. While I never met you, there is no doubt you're a wonderful, sincere,and dedicated person. Through your effort, I've been able to locate where most my family and others were buried and this has rekindled good memories of those who are no longer with me today.

Thanks for being so patient with me.

Keep up the "GoOD WORK"
'
Thank You,
Frank Drenik

Request to Transer Memorials
Patti,
I've been taking and active role to ensure Memorials are updated when additional information is available i.e photos, bio's, relationships and etc.

Would it help if you gave me interim authority to make the changes I recently requested.



Respectfully,
Frank

In order to keep me from sending duplicates of the same request how can i tell if they're pending. Example: I just submitted a bio for Salvatore and didn't see a record of it Later,
my notes indicate I previously sent it to you. I know you must be busy and you're becoming impatient with me, but i'm confused.

Thank You,
Frank

RE: Joseph Novak memorial
Hi, I made the transfer to you for Joseph Novak. I typed the obit for you and deleted the obit taken from newpapers.com. His plot I confirmed with cemetery and will try to get a photo for you when I get back to there. In fact if you ever need a obit I have a membership with them and will look any up for you if you would like. Thanks again for your time and dedication to Find A Grave. Jennifer Sanchez
