My interest into Genealogy spans several years. It has been only through great effort, financial expenditures, and thousands of hours of work that I have been able to piece together my family history. Some of the results are evident through the memorials I have created in their memory on this website.
I believe in sharing my finds with those interested parties. This helps to ensure the previous generations of my family are remembered and not forgotten in the mists of time. Historical records belong in the public domain and I do not believe that images of headstones in public cemeteries should be copyrighted. Family History is for all to enjoy and benefit from.
Because of this, (unlike other researchers on this site), all the records in my tree are free for use. It is hoped that through my efforts, it will make yours easier. All I ask in return is that you do your own thorough research to ensure the information contained within mine is in fact that of the individual you are researching.
I don’t believe in the “numbers” game. Due to this belief, I believe it to be unethical to create memorials for people who are recently deceased unless you are a direct family member or have their explicit permission to do so (also unlike other contributors). Having said that, I am appreciative of their efforts to bring the older burials to life. This also is of assistance to researchers.
If you have questions, please contact me through this site and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.
Changes to page Hi. A friend sent me a link to my best friend Vicki Lynn Laidlaw's page on this site. I added some pictures and misc. Now when I click on the link my friend sent me, it's changed. It's now showing the pics I added and not the one you added. I liked how it was with the single picture you posted before I added pics. Is there a way to get it back to how it was? Are you related to Vicki? Thanks for your help.
Greenwood Cemetery Olav Ystesund Please check spouses for Olav Ystesund 42692132 Wife Nora E Skauge Ystesund 42692083 and Wife Nora Stensrud Ystesund 42692112. He was married to two different Noras I think. However the birth dates are the same in the memorial but they are different on the two different grave stones. At least that is what it seems like.
RE: More Beckstrands If you find any that are your family, just hit the edit tab and enter your member number for a transfer. I'll be out for photos today and on later tonight an tomorrow doing editing and uploads on the site.
More Beckstrands I've found and more Beckstrands while wandering through cemeteries this summer. Feel free to view them at my profile page under contributions area by last name. Thanks again for the note - whenever I see them, I stop for a moment and wonder if they are someone you are searching for. MHH
