Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you to all who contribute their time and talent to this important resource.


I do transfers under Findagrave guidelines. If you are not familiar with the guidelines please do review them. I am not likely to make a transfer without specifics that fall in those guidelines--in keeping with a system of fairness.
I also appreciate specific sources when sent information to update a bio. We are building something special and 'facts' need to be verifiable.
And please, if you send a transcribed obituary or news item--please provide the source.

An impressive genealogist honor code is found at the link below--I agree with it!

Maple Hill Cemetery
As usual, Russ, thank you for notifying me that you added gravestone photos for some of my memorials in KCKS. And I always appreciate when you send me plot location, too.
Here's to teamwork!

RE: Stella Kilian Memorial
A lot of the family was born in Poland. It has been a little difficult so far.
Take care

RE: Larry Beets
I truly appreciate your help with my requests (and the many others) at Maple Hill.
I grew up in that area and used to walk the cemetery to visit family graves, but I have long ago moved to the West Coast and don't get back that way but perhaps once a decade. You are truly a blessing to the community.

Vincent Idzikowski/Bloom
Vincent's family changed name from Idzikowski to Bloom about 1920, including father, brothers and their children. Names were interchangeable from 1920-1940s in various records, including census, draft registrations, marriages, etc. Vincent Idzikowski was married (1913) to Anna Ropel. Unknown if Rose and Anna are same wife. Cannot locate marriage record for Rose. Both Idzikowski and Bloom names are on his headstone application, signed by (wife) Rose (Idzikowski) Bloom.

Pokorny question
Dear Russ C: Found your Find-a-Grave note on the Kubat/Pokorny graves at St. Adalbert Cemetery in Illinois very helpful—also tantalizing. I believe I am a descendant of the John Pokorny you mention there, and I have been trying in vain for several years to connect him and his brother Marie (nee Faushlau] and sister Ella Patterson with the rest of my Pokorny ancestors, who I believe emigrated from Bohemia to Illinois c. 1854. (The censuses, alas, have not revolved the issue.)

Do you have any suggestions as to how I might go about this quest? Or would you be able to help me?

I'm also fascinated by how you go about creating such a Find-a-Grave entry. Could we ever talk?

RE: Thank you for photo request response
You're very welcome.

Please note that there is a difference in spelling between Marguerite Lyons and Marguriete Williams, so, this would leave me to assume these are two different people.
