Bio and Links
I have always been interested in the history of Omaha/Council Bluffs and it's founding citizens, both influential and ordinary. I started my own website, The Graveyards of Omaha (, in 1994, and have since included any eastern Nebraska and western Iowa graveyards within reach. Today the website has grown to over 500 pages and thousands of photos, with a great deal of local history posted also. Stop by and take a look at how Omaha got it's start, and take a virtual tour of our historic graveyards.

Saunders family gravestones
May I have your permission to download your images of the gravestones of Saunders family members? I would like to upload them into my Ancestry family tree. (#13065 & 6648293)
Thank you for your consideration.

Peter Kiewit
Would you be able to go back to Forest Lawn and get a better photo of Peter Kiewit's stone without the dirt on it. A little whiskbroom would take that off. It looks so nice and it deserves to be seen. Thank you. The Kiewit family also resides in Southern California and has a major freeway project going on presently.

James Robert Hammel Memorial
Thank you for entering the memorial and grave photo of James Robert Hammel who died in 1891. You helped me confirm his death date and I am grateful for that. Since he is my great grandfather would you mind transferring the memorial to me?

Thank You,
Nancy Whitley
