Bio and Links
I have been working on my family history for over 35 years and what a wonderful journey it has been. Back in the day, before the internet, one had to travel to different places to look at original records. I have been locked in the attics of court houses, in libraries and cleaned a lot of dust and cobwebs off of old books and shelves. And I have met both friendly and crabby county court officers Those who now only use the internet don't realize what they have missed. I have met cousins by the dozens and am still in touch with many of them. I started to work on Find A Grave because I have received so many requests for information (and I am never credited) that I can't keep up. Besides one can make a beautiful memorial for those who have gone before me. And within personal research, one can get to know their relatives.
If you think that I have made a mistake in the information, I would like to know about it. But I will only change it if you can show me a document that my information is incorrect. I will not make a change just on sayso. I have fat files of documents.
I try to make my memorials to honor the members of my family. Even those I haven't met except from the stories of my parents and grand-parents.

Hi Colleen:
I am contacting you to see if you are related to Phyllis.
I am the granddaughter of Walter Fred Obermier, the brother of her Grandmother Adena Obermier Gallagher.
Am working on the Obermier Family and would like to get information on the family.
Thank you for your posting the information on Phyllis and her husband Elmer Walker in the Parkview Cemetery at Hastings, Nebraska.
