Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been in genealogy a short time, and find it very interesting. I am trying to find more details and more names, and the searching is half the fun! (Kinda like putting together a Jigsaw Puzzle.) Some of the surnames I am interested in are Williams, Moran, Schmedel, Otto, Bender, Strzyzewski, Cesarz, Christensen, Langendorf, (and countless others). I am starting a search on Dorfmeister, and Grove, of which I know I am related, but don't have much in the way of connections yet.

I have my tree started at Please feel free to stop over and say hello, and if you would like to share any tips, and family branches, that would be great! I would love to hear from you.

I wanted to thank everyone for adding virtual flowers to all my friends, family, and interments, (even the family and friends that I did not add, but are here). I have been trying to return the good gesture, but if I haven't gotten to some or all of your interments, please be patient. I think it's a wonderful thing to give flowers to someone, even if it's virtually!

Here is the link to my Best Friend, and Grandmother: Betty Christensen

RE: James and Mary Jane Ross
Thanks. I'm seeing if I can get the other entry for Mary Jane deleted. We'll see how that goes.

James and Mary Jane Ross
Hi Dawn -- There are duplicate records for James in Greenwood Cemetery (122047453 and 122047457). Could you delete one of those? There are also duplicates for Mary Jane (54770922 and 122047069), but this situation is a bit trickier to resolve. You own only the latter entry. The other entry was done earlier, so from that perspective you should probably delete yours. However, your information is more complete, so I'd hate to see that lost. How do you want to proceed on this one?

RE: Caroline Christensen
No problem, the cemetery is only 5 miles from our farm, in the closest town that I go to 3 times a week.

I added a better photo of Frank's info on the monument since it was not in shade this morning.

Caroline Christensen
Hi Dawn, I put several photos of where Caroline is buried although there is no longer a stone. According to cemetery files she is buried next to Andrew.

Mary Deats
I searched Miller Cemetery for this name. No luck. I did find a section with several Deats stones, including a particular macabre one that listed 5 infants of Milton and Nellie Deats, ranging from 1903 to 1919. Are you interested in any of the pictures? Do you know if Mary is connected with those names? There is still quite a bit of snow around, so I can recheck later if needed.
