I live in Minnesota, born and raised, and have always had a deep interest in genealogy. This is what first brought about my interest in cemeteries and taking pictures of headstones. I started by taking the pictures of my grandparents' graves as well as their parents and their siblings, then it gradually grew bigger and bigger. I now look for people I either know personally, someone I can connect back to someone I know personally or someone of special importance or significance; I work on it as a hobby in my spare time and am now working on my 6th photo album of headstone pictures. People who have a findagrave memorial and whose headsontes I also happen to have in my collection I have uploaded. I hope to be able to communicate with others who live elsewhere and can get pictures of other headstones I cannot reach due to the distance.
RE: Richard Zetah Memorial - #29672301 KP - After looking at the Zetah Family memorials (again), and finding the memorial for Mary Ann Zetah, I agree with you; so, I deleted the memorial that I had set up for Mary Ann Zetah. I can see that the stone was "reused" and had her date of death added. I wonder why they're in the Baby Section of the Cemetery.
I haven't been out to Bechyn (to photograph) since 2013. Have there been a lot of new graves added? I'm dealing with cancer again (3rd time) and I lost my husband last May; so, I'm finally getting back to working on the Bechyn Cemetery Memorials again.
Richard Zetah Memorial - #29672301 KP . . . do you think the photo that you have posted on this memorial is actually Richard's grave? I don't. I have the same photo, and I believe it's a Zetah Baby, who the parents are; I don't know. The grave is located in the "Baby Section" of the cemetery and it only has one date on it, meaning the baby was either born dead or still born. Richard was buried in WV and they had a memorial service for him in Renville, MN; Bechyn played no role. If you have any proof that it's Richard's stone, I'm interested in learning about it. Thanks. Ruthy
Edit Thank you for adding the middle name for June M. Hovland to her memorial. I wish you would have sent me a message that you had added a photo of her Grave stone, then I would have noticed and made the change ...way back then.
RE: Our Savior's Lutheran, Sacred Heart I'm from Brooklyn Center but my parents and their family grew up in Bird Island and Olivia and the surrounding areas so I have done a lot of research in that area.
