|Bio and Links|
I started doing genealogy back in the early 1980's, researching the Jewett (my mothers' maiden name) Family in the Wright County, Minnesota area. That was back before the computer, when it was door to door, phone calls, or US mail. I gathered 18 notebooks full of information and now am slowly getting that information listed on Ancestry.com. |
I started back on my family research in February 2011 after retiring in January of that year.
Unfortunatly, most of the people I talked to back in the 1980's can now only be found on Find A Grave.
To any of you doing family research, I suggest you get to the oldest family members first and get as much information as you can before it is lost to time. Some of their stories (not always true) are interesting and more importantly, informative to your research.
Since starting back up this year, I have made some awesome discoveries thanks to the web. Lots of it I would have never found had it not been for the internet.
Find A Grave is an awesome site, people helping people. I can't say enough good things about it.
I live near the little town of Nimrod, Minnesota in Wadena County located in west central Minnesota. I used to travel the whole northeastern part of the state in my work and drove past many cemeteries, not ever knowing what I was missing out on. Maybe that's a good thing, I would have never got my work done!
To all of you who have helped me, I thank you sincerely and will do my best to help as many folks as I can in their research.
If you are interested in a transfer on any of the graves I have entered, I will gladly do a transfer as long as they aren't in my family line. It does not matter to me how distantly they are related to you, if they tie in to your lines somewhere down the road, I'll gladly transfer them.

PLEASE USE EDIT TAB ON MEMORIAL FOR REQUESTING TRANSFERS!!!
I am working on several cemeteries trying to fill in as much information as possible and trying to make as many links as possible. I therefore am sending out a lot of correction requests. If you don't want, or don't know how to make the corrections, please just transfer the memorial to me with a note you want it back and I will make the corrections and additions and transfer it back to you.

Hello Jim Childers
How did you get the portrait/drawing of Mary Jane Houghtailing Halladay? Are you related to her and/or the Halladay family or Mary Jane's son in- law Hiram Edward Daniels #52456702?
Thank you very much.
Are you related in any way? I have not connection and am looking for good homes for many of my unknown to me memorials. Interested?

I am confused and I think you may hold the answers to my questions. You created a find a grave for John Foley (1806-1873)81598675 and listed it as Calvary Cemetery St. Paul and you also created on for his wife Johanna O'Brien Foley (1816-1859) 81597507. However, another family member has them listed at plot # 44 and #45 of St. Patrick's Church Cemetery in Fergusons Falls, Lanark County, Ontario. The information I have from Calvary Cemetery lists that the plots were bought by their sons Michael, Timothy and Thomas in 1895, 22-36 years after their deaths. The info from Calvary does not include their names. Can you help clarify where they are buried.
Thank you so very much!

Thanks! Maybe I'll check with the cemetery and see if they can confirm.

I messaged Joan about this memorial first and she suggested that I check with you. I'm curious about the note left on this memorial (of a distant cousin) and wondered if you knew anything additional about it. Her husband's stone lists her passing so it looks like at some point the information regarding her death reached relatives (and perhaps her ashes too?). Thanks! Roxie
THANK YOU FOR THE BEAUTIFUL TOKEN YOU SO KINDLY LEFT FOR MY DEAR SISTER MARS, YOUR VISIT TO HER MEMORIAL IS GREATLY APPRECIATED,
BEST WISHES FROM IRELAND

I have removed the pictures as you requested. I took those pictures and added them because someone had requested them.
