RE: Family connection
Ok, that helps with the family connection. Yes, I just saw Ida last summer, and we are currently doing DNA testing on her to post to our family website! It will be interesting to see if it generates any new info.

I've been doing family genealogy just since 2009. Only lately have I started to include people beyond my direct blood line. I'm concentrating on Tama County, which is where most all of them are. I'm trying to connect people/families where I previously didn't realize there was a connection. As Michael Sevcik always says, everyone in Tama County is related at some point! The nice thing about Czechs is they have tended to marry each other and settle together. I visited east Bohemia a couple years ago and saw the little villages where the majority of ancestors are from. It was amazing!

I was at the Tama County Museum last summer and got some information that I was looking for. I'm sure there's a plethora of information there that would be interesting. I'm more of an armchair computer genealogist who benefits from people like you who do the real work.

Do you live in the Marshalltown area?

Family connection
We apparently have many family connections in common... are you related to the John Salasek family, and if so, how? # 50045707

He is my great great grandfather.

I'm fascinated and impressed with the number of contributions you have made to FindAGrave. How have you found so many photos and so much information? I thought I had a lot on our Salasek family website on MyHeritage, but it pales in comparison to what you have.

Thank you for all you've done to preserve the history of so many families. It's truly appreciated.

Parents for Christian are not Heinrich C and Sophia Clausing Everding. Heinrich's grandson, Gary provided this information to me.

Hello Louis,
Thank you for contacting me on the duplicate memorial for Henry Furino. I've deleted the memorial I set up and glad to see the obit and links are on your memorial page.

Request for Management Transfer

I see that you have generated the memorial for my Great Grandmother, Sylvia (Yuska) Meinhart (Find A Grave Memorial# 46105019).

I would like to ask you if you would consider providing me the opportunity to manage that memorial for her. I have information that I would like to add to her page and update/link to other family members.

I would greatly appreciate if you could transfer the management for her memorial to me. Is that something you would consider?

Thank you very much for the time and effort you have taken to put the information you had on her memorial.

Kind regards,

Jillissa M

May I copy your photo of Minnie's headstone to my private Ancestry tree?

Benjamin Kalal
Dear Louis,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, Benjamin Kalal was a member of this unit. This is confirmed by his gravestone. My grandfather's name was Gunder Anderson.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but I want to eventually publish something. So, with your permission, I would like to use your photograph of the grave of Benjamin Kalal (Find A Grave Memorial# 42786391). Please let me know if this would be acceptable.

Thank you, I appreciate your time.

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson

It's done. You may wish to explore the other Agle's in St. Paul's Cemetery. They're all related and you may be able to put some pieces of the genealogical puzzle together.
