Bio and Links
Bio Photo Shortly after the Moravian Church in the small town of Aurelia, ND. closed in the early 70's, an association was formed to look after the cemetery.
It was renamed the Aurelia Community Cemetery. I was elected to the board a few years later when one of the original members died. About ten years ago I helped my sister work on our family tree and now when I found Find A Grave, I realized how helpful it could have been.
This information was mostly taken from the tombstones at cemeteries I have visited, with some added from our family tree and ND death index files. I also get information from the Mouse River Loop Genealogy Society, of which I am a member.Most of these cemeteries are located in northwestern North Dakota.
With over 75,000 names in about 675 cemeteries, I'm sure I have made some mistakes. If anyone finds any errors or has more information let me know.I have photos (about 60,000) of the markers of most of the graves added in the last few years. I do not have time to add all these pictures but if someone requests one I will gladly add it if I have one. Please put Find A Grave in subject line.
Most of the obituaries I have added are from local funeral homes or old newspapers with their permission. All pictures that I have added were taken by me personally.

RE: Bly memorials
Thank you very much for all the pictures and all the memorials you completed. They are graves I never would have seen without your pictures.

Not sure what I did, but it looks like I send you the edit request to put Josephine as both mother AND father. Oops. ;) Sent you the edit to correct it and add her father. Thanks!

Hi Herb,
Doing family genealogy on George and Pauline Levey as well as SHEVCHENKO, Pauline's maiden name. My question for you is: Do you have an actual address on the Great Stone Russian Cemetery? Located at Benedict, ND.

Thank you for your time,
