|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.

You have William #82482704 buried in Oakland Cem, iowa city, Iowa. I found his grave beside his wifes in the Union cemetery, Humboldt, Humboldt co, Iowa. If you would move him to the correct cemetery, I will add his stone to the memorial. Geo

Thank you also for your amazing contributions. Several of your memorials have solved missing links on my Ancestry tree.
|Connie Schwindt Rumold||RE: Densil Merle Christiansen - 79464926|
Yes, I agree. I had missed that the date was blank on the monument. I also do not see a SS death etc. Thank you for getting back with me so quickly.

Even though it looks from the picture that her middle initial is "E" it is actually "F" her middle name is Florence, my middle name is after her, this is my grandma. Also, it looks like we may be related?
I see you entered a relative of mine 81320178.
His parents were Holmes Wallace who passed in Marshall CO. Jan 1953. His wife was Bertha (Jennings) and they married in the same county in 1909. I can't locate Bertha. She was still living in 1940 (age 57). If you come across them, I'd appreciate it.
