Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a sociologist at UW-Eau Claire, book lover, travel lover, family lover. . .

Much of my work on Find-A-Grave is coordinated with my daughter, Sandi Knutson Kaduce. We are particularly interested in cemeteries in Barron, Chippewa, Dunn, and Clark counties in Wisconsin.

Genealogy is my passion. Recording information and taking pictures of graves in my area is an important service I can provide to others. I appreciate those who add information and pictures that I do not have geographical access to. The ability to "connect the dots" or fill in the branches, so to speak, of our family trees is deeply meaningful to me. I also love history and appreciate the history I explore as I learn more about the graveyards and communities around me.

I am willing to share pictures and information with anyone, but I expect to be given credit for pictures used by others.

My love for graveyards, and the stories they hold, began with reading Edgar Lee Masters' "Spoon River Anthology" as a teenager. It is a collection of free-form poems, one for each individual buried in Spoon River (a fictional town). It is now entirely available on the internet: Enjoy!

Bill Hart
Potential FAG Project

I am considering a major Find A Grave photo project for next summer and am looking for Find A Grave contributors living in Wisconsin. I noticed in your bio that you have an interest in Clark County Cemeteries. This project is strictly Clark County. Might you be interested in learning more at a later date?

Thanks, Bill Hart

Dear Vicki
Would you please transfer the Pinnerud families that you have memorials to me. My grandfather was Carl Pinnerud, great grandfather was Christian Pinnerud, great great grandfather was Mikkel Nielson Pinnerud. I just added Johannes (John) and Martha Pinnerud, who would of been my great great aunt and uncle. I am looking at you transferring their descendants please.
My account number is 482260128. My goal is to connect as many of the family members as I can. If you would please transfer them to me I would great appreciate this.
My mother was Janet (Pinnerud) Novak and my father was Allen Novak.

Godbout, Alfred and Florence Ethel
Vicky, thanks so much for providing headstone photos for some distant cousins, Alfred Cleveland Godbout and his wife Florence Ethel Marie Godbout (Dallas Cemetery). I've posted their headstone photos to the pages I have for them on Ancestry (Goodboe family tree) and credited you as photographer/donor.

It's help like this that makes the research so meaningful to the rest of the family. Please let me know if you have any questions I can answer about this couple.

RE: Showerman graves
Glad I could help. That's an old cemetery and there is a lot of broken and partially buried grave stones. The Showerman graves weren't bad though.

RE: Mary Elizabeth Allen Cole
Mary Cole do you know about her history in VA during civil war? She maybe my GGG Grandma. I'm not looking to manage any memorials.
