That picture of him is very unattractive. This site always chooses the worst pictures of celebrities. Is this on purpose? It’s hilarious.

Looks like Shawn Mendes lol.

Bablah, am I getting these Central/Eastern European ethnicities right?

Ignac Srmeg is buried at a Croatian Roman Catholic graveyard.

I’d guess that Theresa is also Croatian since both her husbands were (and other Sohars appear to be Croatian).
I think I found her on 1920’s census, but it say both her and her husband speak ”Austrian”. Ok, yeah, sure, that’s totally a language.

Thank you.

I also can’t quite figure out which Henry Peterson on the pre-1940 censuses is Robinson’s great-grandfather, but I know these records are of him:

That may be harder, though.

Who tf is this??! Never even heard of this kid….. Now we have nobodies on this site??? So I requested to post the model Ashley Moore, and it gets denied….. but yet this kid gets posted? Wtf???!??!?!

Girll September 29, 2014 at 4:32 pm

Ashley Moore is even more of a “nobody” than him. I googled her and apparently she was known for going on a date with Justin Bieber in 2013.

WTF December 5, 2014 at 6:12 pm

Um no, Ashley Moore is actually an established model. YEAH, she DID go on a date with that jackass Bieber once, but she was also in a Drake music video. She’s now a successful model.

Does that ring a bell?
If not, be sure to memorize the name because you’ll be hearing more of him and Chloë Grace Moretz

Big projects ahead! #Booya
