    I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. These were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas.

    What is the date and source for your quote by William Wehner in the Detroit bar, trash talking the Reed & Gross company.?

    I would like to bring you up-to-date on my project

    Much info to share
    Kind regards,

    Amy, I just learned about your website. It’s fabulous. Please check out ours – – Ours being the website for the Hamtramck Historical Commission and the new Hamtramck Historical Museum. We just opened and are expanding our operations. I’d like to invite you to come down some time to see it. We had over 3,200 visitors last year, which was our first full year of operation. I’ve written six books on Hamtramck and have two more in production, so if you ever need any info on the city, I’ve got it.

    I’m on the Redford Twp Historical Commission (check facebook).
    Re Redford twp. Cemetery: Israel Bell is the same person as Azarias Bell.
    For great info on the redford (Bell Branch) cemetery check
    Re Holy Cross Cemetery (have family by marriage there). Did you notice the area is divided up by tombstone size? Curious. I have explored many cemeteries and haven’t noted that before. There are no small tombstones in the areas with large gravemarkers.
    Found your blog when trying to google history of this cemetery.
    Keep it up! Love someone else going aroundvisiting cemeteries and discovering the richness there. I photoed many of Kalamazoo Co.’s old cemeteries for posting on the internet.

    I have been trying to find a contact phone number but have been unsuccessful. I have traced many members of my family tree to the cemetery but was hoping to get further information than what is listed on the site including a possible map of the plot locations. Have I missed the site listing the number or is there no official office for the cemetery?

    Somebody phoned me yesterday (June 30,2015) regarding THE NIGHT TRAIN.
    I misunderstood the message.
    Forgive me.

    I found your blog a few weeks upon after I googled a topic. I’d didn’t take the time to subscribe to your newsletter. Now, I again googled a topic and your blog again appeared. Subscription entered, I’m not wait No for the third time to be the charm. Your blog can be described by far too many adjectives all meaning outstanding. I look forward to reading more than just the solo topics!

    I find your work very interesting and would like to add another suffragist to your list: Laura Smith Haviland, who was known mainly for her abolition work, but apparently was also active in the women’s suffrage movement: She is buried in the Raisin Valley Cemetery in Adrian.

    Dear Team, Hope you are doing well. I thought you might like to know some of the reasons why you are not getting enough organic & social media traffic for your website. I would like to update you that, your website is still not ranked on the top pages of Google SERPs for your popular keywords (Products). Your loss is your competitor’s gain i.e. the traffic which could have generated quality sales for you goes to your competitors as they rank well in the Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs) organically. Reasons: 1. HTML and other on-page errors are present on your website. 2. Your home page rank is VERY LOW. 3. Duplicate or low quality contents present in your website without any regular update. 4. Need to update fresh contents on your website and blogs as per the latest Google guideline. 5. Social media profile needs to be updated regularly. Long gone are the days when Google used to give priority to websites with huge number of links. Now Google counts each and every detail to verify if your website is relevant to the keywords you are promoting for.
