Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the Contact Person for the "Burrowes and Safranek" family tree on -- feel free to check it out if you think we are related.

My paternal lines I am researching are my Czech relations: Safranek, Cuhel, Hasek, Halva, and Hajek/Hajkova.They lived in Olesnice, Moravia, Podebrady, Bohemia and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
My famous ancestors are Frantisek Cuhel and Frank Joseph Cuhel. The former was an economist in Czechoslovakia and Vienna and the latter was a 1928 Olympic medalist and World War II correspondent.

My maternal lines are of Anglo-Saxon origins/French Huguenot/English: Burrowes, Fitch, Gates, Nusz, Holt, Blodgett,
Reeder and Gano. My ancestor Judge George Bunce Holt was an early founder of Dayton, OH.

Thank you for looking at my site.

RE: Thank you so much!
Hi Michael,
I added pictures to Isaac, Griffin, and Harriet Gale's memorials also on Find A Grave.
There were pictures for Charles Rider and wife Mary Emma already.
I truly love doing this. Thank you for your very kind words.

RE: Holt Family of Norfolk, CT Litchfield County
If they are not already entered (check by name in the county) then by all means enter them. You own it in the sense that you can make additions and changes. Anyone can add photos to anyone elses entries.

RE: transferring memorials
That works.

If you are interested - you can go to and there is a form that you can fill out and receive a photo your service man's grave marker and cemetery litho. No charge.

Have a good day.

RE: transferring memorials
I am sorry - I just don't remember how my cousins memorial was transferred to me. I know what you usually do - click on orgininal submitter CWGC/ABMC and a page comes up so that you can ask for a transfer.

You might try one of the Find A Grave discussion forums (listed on left side of screen).

If I come up with anything I will send it to you.

Good luck.

RE: Thank you so much!
You are welcome. I have to agree, I am amazed at the stones and the art work involved on some of the stones. Some of the monuments in Woodland are huge and I have tried to image how they were erected as well as the care it too to get them there and those who did the carvings on them.

Glad I could help.

RE: Anna Hasek and Jan Safranek
Hey there! I got in touch with him yesterday to introduce myself and compare notes. He is wonderful, and the depth of his research is impressive. You are right--he does have the info for *my* Safraneks, looking forward to spending time poring over the details about how everyone is connected. You are both way ahead of me in your research, will keep an eye out for something new to share with you both.
