Bio Photo Hi everyone,
My name is Catrina, and I'm from Chicago, IL. My many heritages (yes I am a classic American mut) and my passions for family, history, and photography, led me to work on my tree via Once I started researching I realized that it would be so nice to have everyone's grave info archived in a database somewhere, and eventually my research led me here. I am accumulating family info on here, and at the same time I am a photo volunteer- helping those of you connect the dots to your family members in the Chicagoland area. If you need any advice on anything Chicago related, shoot me a message and I'll be glad to help. Cheers! :)

Lillian S.
Re: Jane Trezise

My name is Lillian and Lillian Ann Trezise is my great grandmother! I visited my grandfather last weekend and discovered a bunch of old pictures of her. Unfortunately I never met her, but she is my namesake. I was looking at Jim Martin's post of the family lineage and realized that I have a picture of Lillian and Roy at the 1915 World Fair. I'll upload them so you can take a look, but I'd love to get in contact with you and explore this further!

RE: Lee S. Atkins
Feel free to combine it if an you'd like. Its all good as long as his memory is in someones hands that knew and cared about him. Drop me a note when you copied or combined whatever you need and I'll delete this one.

Hi Catrina,

I'm Lee's Chaplain and he was a great guy to work with. I set this up because of that but also another reason. There are people Find a grave who "collect" soldiers that die since 2002 and to prevent him being added to one of them, I added him as a respected soldier I worked with.

If you would like I can tranfer his page to you.

Peter John Burke - Part II
And after about an hour of research, I find out that they are relatives! I'm pretty sure that Patrick is Peter's brother, which makes Patrick my 2nd Great-Grand Uncle. :-)

Peter John Burke
Hi CCW -

I am SO SO sorry for the long delay in responding about Peter John Burke. Your message got lost in my inbox shuffle and I was just cleaning it out today. Thank you very much for trying to find the headstone! I don't think I'm related to the others you mentioned but I might be - I'm still trying to figure out one branch of the Burkes so they might be cousins or in-laws.

When you get a chance, can you please visit Peter's memorial ( and remove the two pictures you posted? I'll try a request again to see if anyone else has any luck. I'll also start doing a little research to see if I can fill in some holes about the other memorials you transferred to me.

Thank you very much! Have a great one!

Harry Porter - Mt. Mayriv Cem.
Catrina, I noticed you have claimed my request for a headstone photo for Harry E. Porter. When you do get a chance to search for him, may I ask you for any additional Porters buried near him- especialy his wife Anna Ponedel Porter? I hope your search is successful an I appreciate your willingness to fill my request. Thanks.
