Bio and Links
Just a guy that enjoys history and thinks that history and geneology are an important part of our lives. I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, and now I live outside of Houston, Texas. At home, I am trying to get as many local cemeteries listed as possible. I am currently focusing on "forgotten" and out of the way cemeteries in East Texas. I also travel quite a bit with my job, so in the evenings on the road, I visit local cemeteries and try to fulfill photo requests. I also travel back to Western PA frequently and try to get cemeteries there.

I try my best to try and find out as much as possible about each person using public records, obituaries, etc. However, I know that I will make mistakes. PLEASE let me know if there are any errors so that I can correct them.

Transfers: Please follow the FAG guidelines for transfers. If the person memorialized is not a direct relative - as defined by FAG - please do not ask for transfers.

The greatest thing about love is that no matter how many people you give it to or how much you give, you never have less than you started with.

Howard Skufca #180351768
Hi, Howard is my Uncle. There has been some confusion in our family about his siblings for at least the last 15 years. Howard was the last to pass, so the next generation perpetuated the misinformation on his obituary, as well. I've been researching and documenting my family for the past 7 years and would like to have his bio corrected:

Add Frances Baronie Gregg, Howard's half-sister (she is the oldest sibling) (she was listed as step-sister in error on the obit).

Frank Skufca is actually Frank E. Baronie, Frances' full brother, Howard's half-brother.

Howard's mom, Pearl, was married before she married John Skufca, my grandfather and had two children by her second husband.

Thx so much for your time,
Liz Skufca

Hi! You recently submitted changes to Cesira and Joseph Nobile (Saint Marys Cemetery, Latrobe, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, USA). I read in your bio that you're from Western Pennsylvania and visit. Are you related to the Nobile family because I am on Cesira's side. thanks

RE: Transfer Request
In response to your question:
Billy Gene DANIELS was my paternal 1st cousin. We were very close. I am not a collector of memorials, hence I would gladly transfer his memorial to one of his descendants once they become intereste & request. My main concern is that there are other DANIEL/S families being incorrectly linked to my DANIEL/S family &/or other erroneous information being attached. I am diligently working to correct them for those using the memorials as genealogical resources. I appreciate your consideration.

Thelma Bracewell Weygandt #44004417
You seem to have created duplicate memorials for Thelma in 2010 and 2009,one spelled with an 'r' and one without. Search Bracewell to bring them both up. Thanks for your work at Brookside.

Photo program
Thanks for letting me know about the duplicate for Frank Samella. That is when I tried that beta transcribing program on Find A Grave. What a mess that was. I have not used it since
