|Bio and Links|
Family history has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I started taking pictures of headstones before we had the luxury of digital cameras---oh my, I am dating myself!! |
As I have explored and stomped cemeteries, now with my digital camera, I am working to refine some initial photos. While stomping for family headstones, I have taken pictures of names that have been seen in my genealogy database. In many cases, I have made contact with distant relatives and always enjoy hearing from them.
I am quite happy to share the headstone pictures I have taken. Please feel free to use them at your disgression, as they are there for all to follow the links of their roots. HOWEVER--other photos I have added may not be used or copied without specific approval by the owner...me!

Thank you, Kathy, for those two obituaries. Very much appreciated!
|rootbound||Frantzen, Robert C and Dorothy J|
Are you related to this couple or did you just happen to do the entry and photo from the cemetery? Trying to find a real live Frantzen to help fill in some blanks--his mother was the daughter of my grandfather's youngest sister.

Birthdate: October 6, 1905
Death: Died April 9, 1967
Son of Johannes Berens and Anna Berens
Brother of Katherine Schmidt; Michael John Berens; Wendelin Berens; Berens; Sophia Galante and 4 others

I have removed the link that I had for his father as you requested. I received that edit link in June 2016 from member JF-B #47283216. He has the memorial #163600171 for Anna Aitutis which needs to be corrected. Judy
