|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.
All the people I've met on here so far have just been so helpful and friendly. Makes you want to just go out there and hug them all!
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. I don't think there's any prize money for most memorials managed, is there?

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. I am not interested in managing thousands of memorials, I already have too many now! Jim C.

Dear Mr. Childers,
I noticed that you have Alfred C. Dehring memorial # 81980378 listed as the mother of Florence Meserve Eastman. I think her mother should be Caroline W. Holt Eastman, memorial # 81989245.
The Eastman's are buried at Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis, Mn.
Just thought I would make you aware of this!
|C.C.Diamond||ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest|
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge.
If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.
Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.
If you have already received this message, please accept our apologies for the duplicate message.
back again, Jim. God Bless you for heeding the "Spirit" and working the cemeteries, especially in Minnesota!! so many of our families have roots there and I just located another one, thanks to you. THANKS. I've written before and I believe you have my email address if you choose to respond. It's the Hipple bunch this time. Last time I corresponded it was the Graba/Grebe lines. Have a bunch more in the Wadena, Nimrod, etc area. Dorothea

If you are getting duplicate edits, it is the first time I have used the new edit system and it keeps telling me I didn't fill in the spaces but I will get better at it.

RE: Memorial# 71749239. Is that date of 31 Mae 1917 a typo in the obit? The article below about the marriage has 1907 and That would fit for the infant, Roland b and d 14 Feb 1919 and Rhoda b 1909. What fun and games with a slip of the finger!

Hi Jim, The name is ringing some bells. I have a Childers father and son in my husband's ancestry but didn't notice them in your people. My husband, Veryle (deceased)worked with a Jim Childers in Auburn Wa. If you have any interest, let me know. email@example.com Our Graba families lived in the Nimrod, Wadena, Sebeka etc. Some Hurns are there too. In fact, Emily Leora Hurn married Earnest Childers and had a son Buhl, b abt 1902. I so much appreciate all the input on findagrave and on the internet in general. Nice to have some "Good" to sort of balance the "other stuff". Thanks

Thank you so much :)
I just found out yesterday about the edits that come up on our member page. What do you do to make them go there instead of the e mail.

Added photo per your request. Hard out there as some drifts are three feet high. If not happy with the photo, request again in spring and we will redo.
