I would like to thank Alva Find a grave member and friend for all the photos and hard work that he put into helping locate the Ammermann decendants. Alva had notified me that I had Engelke and Meemkee in the wrong cem. and corrected me and then asked if I would like him to photograph the other Ammermann's. He ask for a list and I gave him some names and had to tell him I dint know where they are all buried, the next thing I know he took photos made the memorials and tranferred them all to me ! What a wonderful person to do all that for a stranger. Thank you Alva for making my dream come true to find my relatives.
