RE: Myrow
I'm very curious about how much research you have done on the Myrows, and what your research and/or family lore has said about their origin. I have done quite a bit of research, as far as I can, and would love to discuss it and share what I have if you want to email me at Thanks!

Janie, with all the family photos you have, I feel like you or your husband one must be related to the Myrows. I surely would love to talk Myrow family trees with you. I have lots I could share. Please email me at Thanks!

Emma Rose Trcka Krenek
I am researching the Trcka-Krenek genealogy and discovered that you have Emma Trcka's birth as being someplace other than where she was born. She was born according to her birth certificate in Taiton, Wharton, Texas. To Paul Trcka and Marie Fucik. Not the person you named in your list of parents. Just fyi, I am not a family member but am doing this research for them, I am a paid genealogist. Hope this helps I know there were a lot of Trcka's and Krenek's in the North, but this family came in to Texas and settled here when they entered Galveston in 1893. Best of luck.

Grace Perry Samuels
Hi Janie,

I sent an email to someone over a year ago about Grace Perry's father. The email was passed to someone else who responded two weeks ago. I am now learning all about Grace's mother's side of the family. Also, a lovely, lovely stranger did research for me in Grimes County in the old county books and I have learned a great deal more about Grace, her parents, grandparents and her husband. Without your help I never would have found out who Grace was! I am SOO GRATEFUL to you!

Please let me know if you are on fb, as I would to be fb friends with you.

With Love and Respect,

Thank YOU!
My Dear Find A Grave Angel Janie,

I think about you all the time.

I am so grateful to you for giving me a huge HUGE jump start into genealogy! Your work and great kindness inspired me help others with their searches.

I want to share a story with you. I have a German genealogist friend, who I consider to be my sister, who helped me trace my German family. She has asked me to trace a family from her village who emigrated to the USA in the mid to late 1800s. While working on the family for her I always check findagrave for memorials.

I have found a few memorials for the family I am researching, and discovered one whose findagrave contributor included one of Mary Grace Perry's ancestor's surname in her bio, which of course, is my ancestor. I emailed the contributor and found that she and I share 7th and 8th great-grandparents. Amazing! I wanted to share this find with you because finding her made me think of you and your kindness.

With Love and Respect,

I wanted to thank you for updating the information on my second cousin, the late Gloria Jean Coward Rodriguez. She was a long gone relative about whose whereabouts were only recently revealed. Sadly, she lost her life, a mother of a three-year-old daughter, at the age of 23 in an automobile accident in New Orleans, LA. It is good that she is linked to her parents and two older sisters. Rest their souls.
