ABOUT FLORIDA NATIONAL CEMETERY: Am receiving emails I've entered memorials in the 'wrong' national cemetery. Florida has had five new national cemeteries open up since the 2010 VA upload for Florida National Cemetery. There continues to be an "exodus" of remains being moved to one of the new VA cemeteries (or moved completely to another state). PLEASE ... (read more)

If you have found a family member Memorial on Find A Grave then you are the recipient of some kindness and effort on the part of a volunteer. Someone once said that creating Memorials on FAG is like the proverbial Message-in-a-bottleŚ being cast out onto the sea of the internet, waiting to be found and linked back to a family. I enjoy creating those M... (read more)
 
JOHN SVADBIK (3,268,535 Memorials)
Super Squirrel. Our family tree is full of nuts.

I enjoy researching especially online the parish records of Czech Republic and Austria. The records are usually in Latin, German Gothic or Czech, which I speak none of. The German Gothic is crazy hard to read the characters. I live in Miami, Florida. As more Cemetery records go online this helps to... (read more)

If sending SACs, please finish your research first (I got five non-duplicate SACs in twenty minutes on the same memorial from the... (read more)

I've been doing family research for over twenty years and it is still a favorite past-time.

Please use the edit system for edits, as anything else may take a lot longer.
