Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings from Holland, Michigan - the Tulip City!

It's always been important to me to remember my loved ones. Fate led me here many years ago and allowed me to enter friends and family members.
~~~~~~
My Husband and I aren't doing as much requests as we used to but if my current entries have any inaccuracies please let me know. Send me your edits as well. Someday, someone down the road will need the most accurate information on their loved ones and you are part of that process too.

I will also transfer any entries I have entered to family members without hesitation if you are related to them. I see no need to keep family members apart and neither should anyone else. I know what the F.A.G. rules are but I'm not a stickler. Just don't ask for any of my direct relatives.

I would like to acknowledge Hope College and it's work with the Joint Archives of Holland for its amazing work in keeping up the accuracy of Holland's history and her pioneers.

Every picture we've taken are under our copyright and I have my originals. If you want to use our pics for any genealogy reason please ask me first and credit my work with my name and member number listed above. Do not use any of my photos without permission. Deal?


Thanks!

Bobbi Jo Thomas
Leigh Ann, I'm hoping you could help me determine if the Bobbi Jo Thomas I am working on is the same one as this findagrave. Could you please email me at jbkristufek@gmail.com please.

RE: John Borgers
Sometimes the parents are buried in a cemetery, but then they list all their children on their stone even when they are buried in different cemeteries or even different states. It's just a family stone, but hard to know where people are buried when there aren't any dates. I'll keep working on this family. I found all the Dutch records online for the kids born before they immigrated. I think son John might be buried out in Utah. I'll get back to you later on this.

edited birth month & day for Aaltje Prins
Hi Leigh Ann,

I edited the birth information for Aaltje Prins, my GG Aunt. The date was when her birth was recorded. Her birth was actually October 31, 1831, Usquert, Groningen, Netherlands. Here is a link to the original record: http://allegroningers.nl/personen/weergave/akte/layout/default/id/9976b36d-3df6-d1da-cc03-24f06599be6f/q/persoon_voornaam_t_0/Aaltje/q/persoon_rol_s_0/kind/q/persoon_voornaam_t_1/Jacob/q/persoon_rol_s_1/0/q/periode/1830(~)1831

Thanks for all your work on Find a Grave. It's much appreciated.

Sharon

RE: Laurel Chamberlin
I went in again and tried and it let me do it, so the notes are off. My apologies.

RE: Laurel Chamberlin
Thanks, Can you also take the map down? I originated the page, but I did not add the two notes. Can you go in one more time and see if they'll let you delete them? If not, I'll go through admin. Thanks, Catherine

Laurel Chamberlin
Hi Laurel, go ahead and delete the pictures and notes. We've confirmed it is the same person on both pages, the the other page has been deleted. Wondering if this was another Chamberlin buried in Potter's Field? Thank you, Catherine

Laurel Sumner Chamberlin: 34572084
Hi Leigh Ann, might you hold off about deleting anything from Laurel Chamberlin's page. See note below. A fellow Find A Graver believes we have two different people here. I'll get back to you if and when we sort this out! Thanks. Catherine
