Want it to move forward, faster…

It’s a conundrum… nothing excites me more these days, than when a family member (or potential one) reaches out to me.  It’s gratifying that my efforts with this website are being discovered by people, and even better still when they actually contact me, like cousin Paul recently did. But I have to admit, it’s disheartening […]

Kenneth R Juers’ Memorial Service

This is Dad’s memorial service. It’s been on YouTube for some time, but no one really goes to my YouTube channel; so, here is the memorial service for our dad, Kenneth Robert Juers. Rest in peace, Pop.  We love you!      

Long Island National Cemetery

Not sure if adding more paragraphs is going to help, but right now I can’t figure out why the picture is not showing in the post’s summary on the Places page. So we’ll keep adding paragraphs & see if the layout change that results from it will make the picture appear the way I want […]

Calvary Cemetery, Queens

A Great Day in My Life

October 25, 2014: This is the day I’d waited for, for many years.  Confirming & making contact… Cassandra Rachelle MacDougal was born in the winter of early 1988.  Ours is an unusual story, one where the details get a little fuzzy because they go back so far. But one thing’s clear; the day we finally […]

Bayville & Oyster Bay, NY

Hey everyone, this is Roy Juers II here… welcome to my humble site… For those who don’t know, I was born & raised in Bayville, NY. I lived there only until I was 9, but I’ve always considered it my hometown, and I love it dearly. Our street, Wanser Avenue, was a narrow little single-lane […]

Bronx Maternity & Woman’s Hospital

Located at the corner of the Grand Concourse & 166th Street in the Bronx, this hospital is where my uncle Bob, Robert Louis Juers, was born on August 19, 1946. I was searching for it to get the actual address so I could map it out, and I found an interesting email exchange about the […]
