My name is Kristin and I have been doing genealogy for about 26 years with my daughter Sarah. Most of my father's side came from the Marathon County area, names being Zyduck, Bloom, Fierek, Orlikowski, Lewandowsi, Gusman, and Kopchinski. Most of my mother's side is from the Hartland area and Milwaukee, names being Mutter, Thon, Emmer and Seiler.
Sarah and I have been transcribing and photographing many of the Cemeteries in Western Racine County. If we have a cemetery up with names, it means we have the pictures taken, they are just not up yet seeing we have a couple thousand pictures to post. If we have pictures of headstones already posted on our memorials, plz be courteous and don't add your own. We take a lot time to clean the stones and take good, clear pictures for our memorials. I would like to save the extra space for other people to add family pictures.
Posting Memorials is great fun. Who doesn't love spending time in the solitude of a cemetery, but plz remember its not about "numbers". We should all have a common goal as FAG Members. Adding memorials is a wonderful way to preserve information in our cemeteries that could eventually be lost over time, along with good, clear pictures of headstones that will erode over time too. FAG is a great place to find more "free" information to piece together family trees. Plz take a few extra minutes to fill in extra information as dates and places of birth and death when adding a memorial. Let's make FAG an enjoyable place for everyone to play an visit.
