Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Maryland. I enjoy going to Cemeteries and taking pictures of the Grave Markers.

I am doing research on several different Family Lines. My Mothers family line was VanLew, Lewis, Craven, Chadwick, Swope, Hollingsworth they settled in the Emporium PA area. My Fathers family line was Gehring, Strausl, Reifenberger, Echard, and Farkas they settled in the Buffalo, NY area.

I like to help people that are just getting started doing their family research. If I can be of any help feel free to contact me.

Any one that would like to use or copy any photo's that I have placed on here may do so, you do not need to ask me. I have place the information here for all to use in there research thank you.

Hello. I am very excited to find you on here. I hope your account is still active. I am hoping for information on your father's side - Reifenberger/ Strausl surname. Please feel free to contact me.
Thanks so much!

Edit Requests
Thank you for the edit requests. They will be processed. Just a reminder, or in case you don't know, I thought you might like to know that I transfer out of guidelines. If you would like custody of any memorials I manage please submit an Edit request using the "Suggest any other correction or addition" option. If I am not related I will transfer. Thank you!

Daniel VanLew Memorial

Thank you for providing the information about Memorial 126915509. The other memorial has separation of last name and was missed in the search for VanLew. My interest in this memorial was to include it in all readable tombstones in Brown Cemetery.--Storres

Ward Xenia Lewis
Hi, I just tried to submit some edits for "Papa" Lewis (Ward Xenia) and his parents and you had already submitted them. Thought I would stop by and say "Howdy". He was my Uncle's (Bud Wheaton) Grandfather. Thanks for submitting the updates.

RE: My uncle John.

Thank you for the transfers. You are very kind and generous. It is unfortunate that many contributors will not transfer their memorials to family members. Now that Find A Grave is linked to, it is imperative that all memorials have complete information available. Find A Grave is a tool for some and a contest for others.--Rebecca
