I’m the oldest daughter of Donald Bickel and Mary Mena, but didn’t live with them growing up. I grew up with my father’s mother and stepfather.
I've been doing genealogical research since 1999 and I'm always adding and updating my records. I look forward to connecting with relatives that I haven't even heard of yet! I have family trees on two websites.
I live near Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, IL. and I will take pictures for you. Weather permitted. You have my permission to use my photos of Headstones in your own family tree.
Feel free to contact me with corrections, additional information, I'll be happy to help if I can.
If you are a direct relative of any of the persons I have posted contact me and I will gladly transfer the posting to you (if I am not more closely related to them).
These are my family lines I am currently researching (w/variant spellings):Bickel, Mena, Machen, Reischel, Rennhak, Thurman, Kenney, VanHolsbeke, Bonnin, Bangham and Mosley.
