I am happy to transfer people not related but please do not ask me to transfer everyone in a cemetery because you want control or everyone who is related to you. Please state relationship.

I only add information when you send it through the edit in the upper right hand corner of the memorial.

Thank you.

A love for family history started when my 6th grade teacher asked us to make a family tree.
I talked to my grandparents and wrote letters.
Then one of my Great Aunt's decided to do a book on her side of the family. This ended up in 4 books.
An Aunt and I decided to go visit cemetery's and look into old records. It has been fun to get more pieces of the puzzle.

Pictures are so much more fun than just names. Thank you to those of you who have added pictures and stories.

Several years ago when my younger sister than about age 10 went with me to the old Tinkham cemetery in Indiana and she said,"Doesn't anyone love these people anymore." No one they knew was living, we were their closest relatives.

Thank you to all of you who have worked so hard and gathered so much information. Thank you for the many corrections and additions.

Thank you to the many wonderful volunteers. There will always be the few where everything is "all about me" .

Pictures are all copyrighted and are from the family collection. You may use them but please list source.

Christine Martinson Kordahl birth
#118828510 - Could you please change her birth year to 1856. Thanks for the great work. I can't find her husband, Martin Kordahl who died between 1920 and 1930 in Dunn county.

Spouse of Irma L. Lewis
Just to let you know, the asterick beside the name of Irma's spouse's name, Duane Clinton Place, is due to the fact that this was entered by someone else on their memorial. It was not entered by me. You may wish to contact them to have them make that correction.

hi and help
Can you please check your entry for Find A Grave Memorial# 118359016. I have been told that it is a duplication of Find A Grave Memorial# 119780431.
Both are yours. There is now a Photo on the latter. If you could let me know, I will update the family files to match.

Thank you for this and the entries, very much appreciated

RE: Thank you
Hi Wanda,
Nice to hear from you. I am trying to locate the picture you requested. Things have been misplaced since we moved a few years ago, but know it's still in our possession. Have also asked other family members for a copy. Will share as soon as I find one.
Be blessed, PK Hunt :-)

Shipshock at St.Ann Cemetery
I noticed that you manage the memorial for Andrew Shipshock ( 109038079). I am trying to find the graves for his parents and I believe they died in Barron County, WI, too. His father was Thomas J. Shipshock , born 23 Dec 1879, Poland, died 15 Aug 1966, Barron Co., WI. His mother was Martha Skierka Shipshock, born 25 April 1886, Danzig, Prussia, died unknown. A Martha Shipshock died in Chicago in 1965 but I do not think she is the right one. Any help you can give me would be most appreciated.

Thank you, MaryAnn Sall
