Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoyed my trips to London England. Its a neat place to visit.My Husband is from England. We were married on Christmas day 2000. I am terrible at dates lol my favorite holiday is Christmas. I've been interested in family tree adventures since I was 13 years old. My grandmother gave me her family tree to read. I was hooked from then on. My goal is to go back as far as I can to trace my family tree. I also want to log cemetery's in Oregon. I think it will help others looking for there family's.

Your Bohemian heritage
Hi Lady Drake 777,
I noticed that you are sketchy on your genealogy from the Bohemian side. Your great grandmother, Josephine "Josie" Barta married your great grandfather Edward Edwin Bridgman. Josephine was my great aunt. I have the genealogy of that line in, but if you aren't subscribed to it I can give you some of it now. If you want more you can contact me at

Josephine Barta b. 17 Mar 1901 Budweis, South Bohemia, Austro-Hungarian Empire. d. 30 May 1952 Los Angeles, California

Her parents were: Josef L. Barta b. 1862 Budweis, Bohemia. d. 1 Jul 1933 Cheyenne, Laramie, Wyoming; and Johanna "Jennie" L. Their b. 1867 Bohemia, Austro-Hungarian Empire. d 19 Nov 1926 Cheyenne, Laramie, Wyoming.

Josephine had 8 siblings:
1888-1959 Ernestine "Erna"
1889-1959 Wenzel "James"
1891-1957 Adolph
1895-1963 Kata "Kate"
1897-1937 Joseph J. (my grandfather)
1899-1949 Friedrich "Fred"
1904-1927 Ludwig "Luther"
1906-1946 Mary

I have exact dates and places of birth and death if you want them.

Helen Barker gate photo
Hi- I went to the cemetery and took pictures for you, however, there is no name/sign anywhere in the cemetery for the gate. I have some pictures of the entrance, very generic and picture of headstone for her and William's headstone. Let me know, Liz
