Have you checked the online White Pages? I made quite a few contacts on a
family line in NH that way.
I would like to find out the same thing for Hesner and Bente. Are there
any families with these names still living in the Clayton Cnty. area? My
father was born in Strawberry Point, Ia., His family and my
grandmother's family had lived in Clayton Cnty. for many generations.
I do know that the family farm was still owned by one of these families
20 yrs. ago (Bente's, I think).

County, Iowa aboard a riverboat Old Hurricane Deck, and was buried in a
in St. Louis. I also had relatives named Richardson who lived in that area in
nineteenth century. Is there a web site in your area or that you know that
names of the intered. Thanks, J. Beatty
First of all I apologise to any of you who are receiving duplicates of this
email, I sent to every list that I belong to. I just wanted to pass this
I live in St. Louis, Missouri and saw on the local news tonight that there
is a BRIDGETON MEMORIAL PARK - 1843 - 1963 ( North St. Louis) that is
looking for persons with family buried there. The airport is being expanded
and they are going to move the CEMETERY.
Is there a way to get this message to as many listers as possible in a

Can you help!

RANDOM ACTS OF GENEALOGICAL KINDNESS (RAOGK).
RAOGK is a grassroots movement that consists of volunteers who
agree that once per month they will do local legwork (such as
take a photo of a tombstone at a specified location or obtain a
record from the local county courthouse) for one person who
requests a specific favor in their locality. In return, in
addition to reimbursing the RAOGK volunteer for costs such as
videotape, photocopies, or postage, RAOGK asks that the person
who received the benefit of the favor in turn volunteer to
perform a similar act of genealogical kindness for someone who
needs a favor in the locality where s/he resides.
Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness was started by researchers
at one small Web site, but it has grown rapidly into an
international movement. Read all about it and sign up as a
volunteer if you can at http://raogk.rootsweb.com/
