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: http://spoonriveranthology.net/spoon/river/. Enjoy!
RE: Correction Thanks Vicky!! Maybe your husband and I are cousins! LOL!
Thanks for all your work on the website, I just recently found it since we will be bringing my Dad's cremation remains up in June I was looking for a contact for the cemetery and ran across the website.....very interesting!!!
Correction Hi Vicky, My name is Shannon Dahlberg Allbaugh. I just found this site searching for my families cemetery info, Poskin Lutheran Cemetery.
As I was going thru all the Dahlberg listing I realized David Dahlberg is listed as my Uncle, Richard Dahlberg's, son....he is not. as you can see, Richard was born in 1940 and David in 1944. The are cousins, but I don't know who his Father was...
Daniel is listed as a son of Richard who just passed in 2015 which is correct, but Richard Dahlberg JR should be listed, not David.
My Father, Axel Edwin Dahlberg passed away last August and we will be interning his cremains in June 2016. I can get you his obit as well as obits from Axel Andrew Dahlberg and Fern Celia Rice Dahlberg who were my Grandparents. All buried in Poskin Lutheran cemetery.
Hope this helps...thank you for all the work you do, I find this very interesting and hope to add some items to complete my family's information. Sincerely, Shannon
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?
Pinnerud Thank you very much Vicki for transferring the Pinnerud's you have entered on Find A Grave. I really appreciate this and yes it is nice to keep all family together, especially those doing genealogy. Pam Smith
Pinnerud 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.
