I discovered Find A Grave while searching for the grave of my grandfather's brother. This simple little search sent me on a mission to search for my ancestors and get some of my family history on Find A Grave. Once I got hooked on genealogy, I decided I could help others by adding names to the site so that sent me onto my new "hobby" - photographing graves, and now I am totally addicted. I hope my work on Find A Grave will help others in their search or allow them to "visit" a loved one's grave. |
I'm not one of those people who think they give a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as they are not in my tree.
The Bismarck Tribune did a very nice article on my cemetery project a while back. Click Here to view the article.
I have set up a Tribalpages family tree. Click on the link below to view it.
If I have taken a photograph of your ancestor's tombstone and it is of poor quality (shadows/overgrown with grass/hard to read/etc), please let me know and I will see what I can do about taking a better one. It is hard to take good photographs of all the markers when I am at a cemetery as the angle of the sun is often poor the stones don't photograph well.
If I have helped you in your search, please return the favor and "pay it forward" and do your part to help out someone else.

Thank you very much for getting Vera Rumer's grave photo!
|Dstmnstr||Burials in Mandan Union Cemetery|
Thank you for the photos of my distant cousins and their spouses, Christian G. Olsen, Randy Jahraus, and Dennis K. Thiel. I see that Anne, Christian's wife, is also buried there too, and I can't find her memorial page, I'll add her memorial page so you can add her photo in.

|Margo Erick||Schock and Job families|
Hi - thanks for doing the edits for the Schock and Job families at Zoar Cemetery. They are my step-grandmother's parents and in-laws. I appreciate your work in documenting that cemetery!
|Linda Proudler||BUCKLEY, John|
A big shout out to thank you for taking this picture. Even though there is no headstone for John, I truly needed a picture of where he is buried along with his wife, Margaret, for family tree. My sister-in-law is a BUCKLEY and she lives in Fl - a long way from Mandan, ND! So thank you very much!
|KPS||Janet and Clarence Maier|
Thank you again Brian, this time for the photos of Janet's and Clarence's marker!
